HOW TO GET HERE
Location: 2nd Floor, 739 Gore Ave
Enter the studio building through the double doors under the yellow awning marked 739.
Go up the stairs and through a second set of doors. Turn left to find a third set of doors and ring the doorbell on the right hand side, marked “Hand Eye Ceramics”.
One of our staff members will come let you in. Please be patient if it takes a minute or two. Make sure to pull our third door shut after entering.
The studio is behind the black door straight at the end of the hallway.
If the outside door is locked and you cannot get to the doorbell, please call your instructor (refer to your confirmation email for instructor phone numbers).
Before entering the final door leading to the studio, you will see a bathroom to your right. Please wash your hands for 30 seconds or more.
APRONS & TRIMMING TOOLS
Aprons, tools, and clay as well as any necessary additional materials are included for private workshops, group bookings and drop in classes.
If you are taking a 6 week wheel throwing class, you will need to purchase a trimming tool and an apron at your first class. Aprons are $17 + GST and trimming tools are $10 + GST.
You can purchase these as a bundle from our webstore.
Please keep the confirmation receipt to show to the instructor when you arrive for your first class.
Alternatively you can pay when you arrive, or bring cash ($28.35 after tax).
If you already have one or more of these items, you can purchase the individual tools or apron on the webstore.
Marking Your Tools
It’s very important to label your trimming tools so they don’t get lost. Please label with either electrical tape, nail polish or spray paint on the metal handle.
9lbs of clay is included with your class with your 6 week class tuition. If you need additional clay, you must purchase it through the studio. No outside clay is allowed.
