For this Introduction to Hand Building Workshop, you’ll each be given 1.5 lbs of clay to explore, experiment and create with. Throughout the workshop you will be shown techniques you can choose to use to create a personalized work to have finished by the Community Clay team.
With the clay you’re given, you can choose to make one object or two small objects with no additional charge beyond the cost of the workshop. Extra pieces created are subject to additional charges dependant on the size of the object to accommodate for the use of glazing materials, the labour of love that goes into finishing and trimming the work for you by the Community Clay team as well as the space taken in the kiln for the multiple firings.

We look forward to having you create with us. When you arrive at the studio we will have a meet & great to get to know each other! The instructor will do a couple of demos to start things off. Focus for the workshop will be on the studio experience, and trying your hand at clay. We work together at the end to clean up, as Community values collaboration. Additional pieces may be completed for you by our staff for a fee. Your work will be ready for pick up in 4-6 weeks (extra thick pieces will take longer to dry out.)
The workshops are great for those who have a challenging schedule but want to try ceramics, or those with prior experience who want to work on a specific skill. The Workshop is one evening, doors open at 6pm for meet & greet; 630pm the Demo starts; 830-9pm clean up & choose glaze colours! If you have booked a 2pm workshop adjust the time accordingly. Doors open at 2pm and the Demo will begin at 230!
Please note classes and workshops are non-refundable. We will try our best to re-sell your spot in the class if you contact us prior to class starting. If we're able to fill the spot, we will refund you, minus a $50 administration fee.
All classes and workshops are 18+
