ITS CLAY TIME BABY ! LEARNING AT YOUR OWN RYTHM: Member session are not set up as a 'class' format, but a chance for you to learn and work more autonomously on your clay projects, using all the tools and equipment in our shared studio, inspired by other members around you, and with the technical support of friendly staff when needed. IN THE STUDIO : * Each wheel has its own kit of the fundamental tools you will need for throwing and trimming. Our shelves provide more tools and equipment * 5 stoneware clays and porcelaine are purchasable by the kilo (recycled or straight from quarry) * there are 12 coloured slips (engobes) and more than 18 glazes to chose from * Firings are paid according to volume of each piece prior to bisque firing * We ask all members to follow our safety tips to ensure we can continue pottering until we are 99 STAFF : A qualified ceramicist is always present at the studio to welcome you, guide you in the studio space and with tools, support your projects when needed, and ensure general order of workshop. Our staff members are all bilingual, either English-French or English-Dutch, with the aim of welcoming as much as possible in the language you are most comfortable in. IDEAL AFTER AN INTRODUCTION COURSE As ceramics is a technical craft, it is important that you follow one of our throwing introduction courses before booking a wheel during a member session. We want to ensure everyone starts off their clay journey well accompanied and informed. During member sessions, our staff is there in case you need advice, but not available for full-on beginners tutoring. STORAGE : As we are a small studio, storage needs to be well managed. We provide personal storage space for members during their membership pass, but not for those who book a one-off member session. Personal storage boxes are to be emptied and cleaned at the end of your pass. MEMBERSHIP PASS : For more interesting price value and for best ceramic practice of regular weekly attention, we recommend purchasing member sessions with a membership passes. (purchasable on the next step when you click 'book now' on this page) BOOKING JUST 1 MEMBERS SESSION : We propose the option of booking just one member session for members who just need to glaze last work, or finish a project. It is not meant for coming in just once or sporadically as there are at least 3 different stages to the ceramic process, each needing attention and storage space.
