Summer Session 2022

  • ADULT SUMMER POTTERY CLASSES 2022

NOTE: Our summer classes are full. If you would like to go on a waiting list for possible cancellations, please contact Jen Johnson at jennifer@stonewaregallery.com

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT SUMMER CLASSES

Learn how to make a pot on the potters wheel at the beginner or advanced level. Finish your creations by glazing and firing them in our high fire gas kiln. Classes are 8 sessions long, with one class per week during the months of July and August. Both morning and evening classes are offered. Class size is limited to 10 people per class. These classes are a great opportunity for new students to get started in classes at the Stoneware Studio. Summer students get first priority over other new students to join our regular session, if interested in continuing.

CLASSES and COVID 19:

As of March 15, 2022 we are continuing to only accept fully vaccinated people into the classes, and will be requiring proof. Masks are also mandatory until further notice, since the nature of the classes put students close together for an extended period of time, and hands-on instruction is given.

Costs:

  • – 8 Classes for $256.00 + GST $12.80 = $268.80. Price includes 8 assigned classes during July and August, and one extra visit of 4 hours as practice time, during gallery hours when there are no classes.
  • – Those on waiting list will start being notified for the remaining available spots beginning May 9th
  • – Payment reserves a spot in the class and must be paid for in advance. For those who pay but change their mind, a non refundable amount of $50 will be charged up until June 15th, after which no refund will be given.
  • – Note: all classes are paid for, including missed classes, but may be made up in one of the other class times the same month as long as space is available, or in exchange for an additional visit of 4 hours of studio time that month.
  • – Extra charges apply on clay which range in price from $32 – $52 per box, with half boxes available, tools for an introductory kit is about $45, and firings (see below).
  • – An additional $75 per month permits students unlimited practise time, though some restrictions apply.

Class times: (subject to enrollment)

  1. Tuesday morning 10am – noon
  2. Tuesday evening 7:30 – 9:30 pm
  3. Wednesday evening 7:30 – 9:30 pm (beginner class)
  4. Thursday morning 10 am – noon

Firing charges:

  • – Pieces are measured and charged 5 cents per cubic inch once they have been glaze fired.  No piece will be measured less than 2” in height. This pays for the initial bisque firing, the glazes used, and the final firing to cone 11 in the gas kiln, as well as the labour involved. (This is available for current students, former students and space renters use only).
  • – Pots that damage the kiln shelf in firing will be charged an additional $8 – $15.
  • – Bisque firings alone are charged 2 cents per cubic inch (does not include glaze or gas firing).
  • – All firing charges must be paid for when picking up finished work.
