OPEN ACCESS / $30 PER SESSION* OR $150 FOR 5 SESSIONS + 6th ONE FREE!
*Session time for up to 3 hours
Conditions apply for the fairness of all who use the pottery studio
- Purchase of clay is required from the studio to enable us to maintain appropriate kiln schedules. By using different clays, requires different firings, which means more costs to run the kiln. If we fire things that are the same this brings our cost down, allowing us to offer an open access program for everyone at an affordable price.
- Must have completed the pottery beginners program and be confident to work independently without supervision.
- Must have current knowledge of glazing techniques and application.
- Expected all who are attending open access, maintain the pottery studio, by; leaving the area clean and ready for the next person. (clean tools, wheels and working benches and return things as to where they belong)
- Bring your own towel and tools to each session you are attending
- Must see front counter staff upon arrival and departure
What you get:
- Access to the pottery studio outside of scheduled pottery class times, bookings are essential via phone with 48hours notice
- Use of Open Access Glazes available
- Limit of 2 bisque firings (please not there are size restrictions of 15cm x 15cm x 18cm height)
- Limit of 2 glaze firings (please note above measurements included in your fee’s)
Addition firings: Kiln firing Costs
- Art Mania does not fire clays that have not been purchased from the studio, due to the risk of other clays contaminating our clay recycle program, and due to the different firing requirements of other clays.
- Projects measuring up to 15cm x 15cm x 18cm will attract a fee of $8 per firing
- Larger projects will be negotiated on a cost per size ratio
- Please note: 1st firing is a bisque, and a 2nd firing is generally a Glaze firing; so most projects will require 2 firings with ample drying time throughout the process.
- Regular weekly classes and workshop projects will take precedence over open access firing timetables. So please be mindful if you are wanting projects fired for a specific date, allow plenty of time and make front counter staff aware of such.
