UBC Pottery Club is piloting public workshops to meet the high demand for membership! If you are interested, read the details below:
✰ The Details ✰
In February we will host drop in instructional, hand-building pottery sessions on the 10th, 17th, and 24th (Sundays) from 2 — 4pm. There will be 10 spots, and are first come first serve. Admittance to these sessions will be $10 without keeping the piece, and $20 total to keep your piece. Specific projects will be announced in the first week of February.
✰ Sign up ✰
There is no sign up. Show up on time or in advance, and have payment ready in cash.
✰ The Session itself ✰
The workshop starts at 2 pm. After securing your spot and paying the $10 fee, you will be given a piece of clay to work with and instructions from the instructor based on the theme or project design chosen. Then, you will have until 3:30 pm to create your piece. At around 3:30 your instructor will announce that it is time to bring your project to a close and you will be allowed to choose whether or not you would like to have your piece fired.
If you do not choose to have your piece fired, you will be asked to ball up your clay and clean your workspace.
If you choose to have your piece fired, you will pay an additional $10 to the instructor, mark your piece as your instructor tells you to, and choose one glaze colour from the selection presented. Then, you will clean up your workspace. Your instructor will be responsible for drying, firing, and glazing your piece, and will contact you within a month via email after your piece is completed and ready to be picked up.
✰ Reminders ✰
☛ Pottery is messy business, wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.
☛ Please be mindful of the other people using the space, remember to leave other people space to work and do not touch other people's things unless invited to do so.
☛ Clay dust is bad for your health, it can get stuck in your lungs and cause respiratory problems down the road. Therefore, EVERYONE MUST CLEAN their work space appropriately.
☛ Only Pottery Club execs may touch the kilns. The kilns can get extremely hot so for your safety do not touch or go near them.
