Saturday 1 pm, 3 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm – $150 plus tax for two people

Duration 1 hour and 45 minutes. Four wheels are available so two couples can come together. Reservation and advance payment is required. Please call the studio at 905 477 0002 to book. The payment is non-refundable, but can be converted to store credit if you call in advance to let us know you’re unable to make the appointment.

Our instructors will get you started and guide you through the process to make sure you have a great time and get a good start. You’ll work with three half-kilo balls of clay; you’ll follow along with the instructor with the first, learn on your own with the second and make something that you’ll love with the third.

When done, you can choose one item from the ones you made, and we’ll trim and bake it for you. When it is ready you can come in to paint it at no charge.

Aprons are provided, but it’s likely you’ll still get some clay on the clothes, no problem it washes out.

People with long nails will find the process a good deal harder.

I have long finger nails, can I do wheel throwing?

Kinda, but it will be quite a bit more difficult as you have to use the knuckles more than the fingertips. It’s kinda possible, but we do not recommend it. We can’t do refunds or compensation if it doesn’t work out for you, sorry. 

Will you fire clay items that I’ve thrown with my own clay on my own wheel?

In some cases, yes. It depends on the circumstances at the time, like what kilns are available, how busy we are etc. There is no refund or compensation if the items break during the firing. If they broke in our kiln, they’d have broken if you’d fired them in your own.

We only do cone 04 clay firings so the clay must be “low fire cone 04” clay. If it is “high fire” clay see below for full kiln pricing. You will need to bring a clear picture of the box the clay came in so we can check the type

For the firing you pay for the space you need. Minimum space is the room taken up by four standard mugs next to each other, which will cost $35. Each additional “mug space” is $10. Tall items may come with extra charges.

A full cone 04 kiln load is $100 so if you have many items, it’ll be most efficient to get a full load. You will load the kiln yourself under supervision. Full kiln firings to higher temperatures is possible with a $50 extra charge. Painting of the fired items is not included the price.

Can I store unfinished clay projects in the studio?

Sorry, it’s not possible for us to store work-in-progress in the studio. If your project is not finished, we’ll wrap it up safely in a box and you take it home where you can finish it before bringing it back for firing.

A clay project dries over the course of a day or so under cover, and if left too long it becomes too dry to work on, so it’s best to take it home to do detail carving etc.
