Building a community of clay creatives!
Suitable for intermediate and advanced potters
Self directed exploration of all things clay
Staff on hand to help
Firebird Studios Community Clay is open for students and potters of all levels to come and explore their own clay projects and ideas.
Open hours for Firebird Studios:
- Monday – Thursday 9 am – 9 pm
- Friday 9 am – 5 pm
- Saturday 9 am – 1 pm
Community Clay members are welcome to come in and stay as long as they like when we are open.
During class times on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings and evenings and workshops on Saturday mornings we would appreciate limited attendance at the studio – please try to reserve your visits to Mondays, Fridays and the afternoons of the teaching days up to 6 pm. Please remember, we are closed from 1 pm on Saturdays!
These sessions are self directed, so you should have some experience with clay! There will be staff members on hand to help you with your project. If you have not done at least four lessons in the basics of clay, we highly recommend that you start with one of our Introduction courses!
You will need your own clay and tools. You are welcome to use our glazes. Please use your own underglazes, slips and colourants after you have trialled your designs with ours! You are to take your clay home with you! Your work must be marked with your name if left on the drying shelves – we only hold your work on any shelf for 6 weeks! Your name or mark should be on every piece you put into the kiln room.
Your firing fees are discounted to $9/kg at the end of all firings, instead of $7/kg for bisque plus $9/kg for glaze! If you join a course after you have paid for Community Clay you will get a credit towards your course!
Community Clay is term based – 10 weeks – but you get any holiday weeks we are open (we sometimes close during school holidays to have a clean up and catch up).
