  • Cancellation Policy
    One Time Workshop: Cancellations made more than 48hrs prior to class are eligible for a full refund. Cancellations made 48-24hrs before class may receive studio credit to reschedule your class. There is no refund for cancellations made less than 24hrs prior to class, but you may transfer your seat to someone else. No-shows will be charged. For parties of 3 or more, we must have at least 48hrs notice. If cancelling/rescheduling for multiple people, you will need to go into each profile to make a change. Recurring Classes (4 Pack Classes): Students are allowed to cancel/reschedule at least 24hrs prior to class time, with a limit of one cancellation per 4-pack. It is not ideal to have too many weeks between classes as pieces dry out and studio space is limited. If you can't find an open seat in an upcoming class, put your name on the waitlist and reach out to before you cancel the class. 8 Week Workshops: Students are allowed one make-up class. Do not reschedule online. Please reach out to to reschedule your makeup. Since this is a curriculum based course the invoice is non-refundable.
  • What do I expect from a one-time class?
    One-time classes are a fun way to experience pottery for the first time or get back on the wheel after a hiatus. Bring clothes you don’t mind washing, a hair tie, and your hands! Participants will be taken through the basic steps of using the potters’ wheel. You will choose the glaze colors to be finished and picked up at a later date. Classes are 2 hours for working with the clay and an additional 30 minutes for cleanup. Here is a quick video of some of the wheel throwing steps we will be covering in class.
  • How are your mixed level 4 classes set up?
    The mixed level classes are offered for artists to work through all aspects of the pottery making process. Students will improve on their skills, bring their inspirations to life, and have fun in the process. Participants are encouraged to come with their own inspiration of what they would like to make. This could be anything from improving your ability on the wheel, hand building your own dinnerware set, making a birthday gift, or throwing your dog a bowl! Teachers will be floating around the studio to help demonstrate and inspire as needed. Students can opt in or out of group projects as they come. The rolling class schedule will have some students who are starting their 4 classes with others who have been enrolled for some time. This lends to a nice and collaborative studio flow.
  • What if I need to miss one of my recurring classes?
    No problem! You can reschedule up to 24 hours prior to class through our scheduling link and add yourself to a different class or the waitlist and email if you have any questions. You can also purchase a package which will give you 4 individual classes that you can fit around your schedule. We recommend to make sure you can attend at least 3 classes within a 4-week period, so you'll be able to finish pieces in a timely manner. Pots can dry out when left for too long. Here is a link detailing how to reschedule your app on Vagaro.
  • Do you offer open studio time?
    We primarily offer teacher-guided class time, whether a one-time workshop or longer form class. We also offer independent study times during the week for current students to add on extra studio time, as needed.
  • Can I schedule a private class for my birthday/corporate event/just for fun?
    Yes! Classes are 2hrs to make with 30 min to clean. With 6-10 people we will take you through 2 projects on the potter's wheels. With over 11 people we would break into two groups: one hand building, one wheel throwing - then switch! You all will choose your glaze colors and pick up your pieces in 3-4 weeks. Email for more info and to schedule an event.
  • Do you offer children's classes?
    Our classes are geared toward adults, but we welcome kids 12+ accompanied by an adult to our one-time classes. Or email to schedule a private group one-time kids workshop!
  • Can I sign up for a class if I see it is full? (Waitlist)
    Yes. Recurring classes typically have 6-8 seats available. If the studio flow is calm, cool, and collected they can increase to up to 10. If you see a class you would like to join that is full, put your name on the waitlist. You should receive a response of whether you have been admitted to the class 24 hours prior to that class. This will not charge you for the class until you have been let in and attend. You will need to pay on site - or if you have purchased a 'package' of classes this will be automatically deducted from your series.
  • Where are you located?
    We are located 75 Thayer St. Boston Ma 02118 in the SoWa Arts District in the South End of Boston. The studio is in the basement level of the 450 Harrison Ave large brick building. Park on Harrison Ave. and walk through the Thayer St. breeze way. We are across from the 'Farmers Market' chalk wall in the basement level.
  • Where should I park?
    We suggest finding free parking on Harrison Ave or one of its ajoining side streets. The lot off of Albany street under the 93 fwy is $2.5/hr and the lot directly behind the studio is 90 minutes free (3hrs on weekends) and $10/hour after. You can see a nice visual of parking here and SoWa provides a nice visual here.
  • I have never done pottery before. Do you offer beginner classes?
    Yes, we do! We suggest you give it a spin with a one-time class where you will be taken through the basics of handbuilding and potters wheel techniques. If you want to dive into learning all aspects of the pottery-making process we offer 4-pack classes and 8-week workshops, where a teacher can guide you through your journey into clay.
  • What should I bring to class?
    -Mask (optional) -Clothes you don't mind getting some clay on - although it typically washes out pretty well -A hair tie if you have long hair -Remember to take your rings, bracelets, and watches off before throwing -Of course, your hands!
  • What type of clay do you use?
    We use two American dug midrange stonewares at Clay Lounge. One is a speckled brown the other is a white stoneware. The speckles in the brown come from small particles of manganese in the clay. The white has porcelain-like qualities, being soft and smooth. Both are great for both throwing and handbuilding. Outside clays (or glazes) must be approved by an instructor.
  • How do you fire your pottery?
    We fire to cone 04 bisque and cone 6 glaze in electric oxidation kilns. This 'midrange' temperature produces pieces of stoneware pottery that are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
  • Do you offer outside firings?
    We have done outside firings in the past. We fire to cone 6 in an oxidation quick cooling setting. Plesae reach out with your needs and we can discuss cost and logistics.
