F.A.Q. and T&C’s

How to prepare for my Workshop?

We suggest trimming your nails prior to your workshop, wearing old clothes (bring an outfit change for afterwards) and bring a camera phone for memories & to take a photo of your artworks! While clay is non-toxic, washes out of clothes easily, and we even provide an apron for you to borrow – be prepared for a gloriously muddy time!

Provided in your workshop – all the clay, instruction, use of our equipment, freshly laundered apron to borrow & your favourite piece fired per person.

Can we BYO Food & Bevys?

You are welcome to bring your favourite snacks & bevys***! If you are looking for an excellent caterer, we would be more than happy to connect you with our favourite Caterer – Groundswell.

We do have stemless glassware that you may borrow.

*** While you are welcome to BYO adult bevys, we do have a strict ‘Keep it Classy’ policy for behaviour at our studio. We are totally okay with the amount of drinks that produce giggles & a good time. However if any members of your group become uncontrollable/aggressive, or we become unable to continue teaching the lesson, your entire party will be asked to leave. If your workshop has time remaining, you will forfeit the remainder of your booking & no refund will be given.

May we arrive early to setup for our Party?

Need to set up on the day? No worries. we permit access to our building to set up 30 mins prior to your event time, complimentary. Please be respectful if other workshops are finishing up while you set up. 

What if our workshop runs over?

Your workshop booking begins & ends at the times that you have booked. If you overstay your time with us, you will be charged hourly at $250 per hour (rounded up), so that we can cover overtime wages for our staff. 

Damages to Artworks/Studio/Equipment

We do have a ‘break it you bought it’ policy for all artworks. Damages to the space/equipment/etc will be assessed by professionals and you will be liable for charges.
