Types of Clay We Use

When it comes to getting your hands dirty with clay, we like to keep things interesting, which is why we use Mid Fire clay for our classes and workshops due to its exceptional qualities.

Not only is it more sustainable, but it also offers greater versatility when it comes to glazing and firing, ensuring your pieces are not only visually stunning but also functional for everyday use, including being microwave safe.

Kiln Firing

Certain classes offer the choice to add Firing of your art pieces during checkout, while others include it in the class fee.  Please review the class details and be sure to carefully read our terms & conditions, particularly those related to kiln breakages, available here.

Clay Piece Collection

In this workshop, we use mid-fire clay. Throughout the 5 weeks, you'll create multiple art pieces that will be stored in the studio. On the final class, you can choose one piece for glazing and firing. The glazing and firing process takes approximately 4 weeks, and you'll be notified of a collection pick-up time within 2-4 weeks from the final class date.

We also offer a flat rate shipping of $10. Please contact the team here to arrange shipping.

If objects haven’t been picked up after 4 weeks they will be donated or recycled.

Clay Piece Collection

If you left your items to dry or be fired in our studio, You'll get an SMS when they're ready for pickup. Please be sure to label your pieces and show us a pic to make it an easy collection for everyone. If you're taking your creation home, let it air dry for 4 weeks for best results.

Shipping? Yes! Just $15 if you live in NSW and $18 for the rest of Australia. Please contact the team here to arrange if you'd like us to post your pieces to you when they're ready.

Wheel Throwing Class

Loved it! Teachers were great and super encouraging. Could answer any question. It was a relaxed, fun environment. Highly recommend.

Renee Wilkinson

Clay and Sip Class

We had a great time. The teacher was informative and personable and the space was great. Private feedback: Paints weren’t as plentiful quite a few colours missing. Don’t forget to tell people at start of class to write the name & date on bottom of piece.
