Paint-your-own-Pottery

We provide all the materials, paints, glazes and an always growing selection of ceramics for you to create your own work of art.  All of our paints and glazes are non-toxic and food safe.  Use one of our many samples as inspiration or totally go with your own ideas.

How Paint-your-own-Pottery works:

1 – Choose your piece. Pick the bisqueware piece you would like to paint from our growing selection of ready to paint pottery.

2 – Create your design.  Using a pencil, sketch your design.  Don’t worry pencil marks fire away

3 – Paint Away!  We have many different colours to choose from and several types of glazes.  Take as long as you want and have lots of fun!

4 – Leave your piece with us.  We will dip your piece in clear glaze and fire it in our kiln which makes it food safe.

5 – Pick up your finished piece.  We will call you when your piece is ready to be picked up.  Usually within 7 days.


Glass Fusing

Easy, creative, addictive and totally kid friendly!  Glass fusing is simply the process of stacking two or more layers of glass together to make a design. Followed by putting the glass in the kiln to melt it or fuse it together.  No experience needed.  Great for kids and adults alike.

How Glass Fusing works:

1 – Choose your piece.  Pick the glass piece you would like to make from our wide variety of projects.

2 – Pick your colour.  Decide which colour you would like for the background of your glass piece.

3 – Plan & Glue your design.  Using different forms and colours of glass, arrange and stack the pieces on your background.  Hold it all together with white glue.

4 – Leave your piece with us.  We will fire your piece, fusing it all together.  A second firing may be needed to slump or drape your glass piece into a mold.

5 – Pick up your finished piece.  We will call you when your piece is ready to be picked up.  Usually within 7 days.


Hand-Building Clay

Some of the most beautiful pieces of pottery are hand-built without the use of a pottery wheel. Otherwise known as slab, coil building or pinch pottery, there is an infinite number of things that can be made from clay.  Grab a lump, get messy and play!

How Hand-Building Pottery works:

1 – Choose your lump of clay.  Depending on what you would like to make, pick a small, medium or large lump of clay.

2 – Shape your piece.  We will give you basic guidance and tips as you create your masterpiece. Copy one of our ideas or use your own imagination.

3 – Paint it Up!  We have many different colours to choose from and several types of glazes.  Take as long as you want and have lots of fun!

4 – Leave your piece with us.  We will let is sit for a week to completely dry out.  It will then be fired in our kiln the first time.  We will then dip your piece in a clear glaze and fire it again.  This will ensure your piece is waterproof and food safe.

5 – Pick up your finished piece.  We will call you when your piece is ready to be picked up. Usually with 14 days.
