WELCOME Term 3 2022

We are excited to have you in the studio for term 3 pottery class. Here is everything you need to know for your upcoming class. 


What to Bring:
You will need to bring an old bath towel to class and wear comfy clothes.

The fee of includes tool kits, wheels, clay, glazes, 2.5kg of firing.


How to find us:
This Google maps link will show you exactly where we are on the Convent Grounds. For information on getting to the Convent please follow this  link 


Make Up Classes: 

We have implemented a self-manage class swap spreadsheet to help facilitate make-up class so you can isolate without missing classes.


How Does it Work?

If you can't make class then you need to highlight your name in red. This indicates to everyone that you won’t be attending class.

* If you want to take a seat that has become vacant, add your name next to the spot/name that has become vacant and change both names to green.


This system will only work if you give your fellow students advanced notice of your change in schedule. If you give notice after you have already missed class, the opportunity to give someone else a chance make a class is gone. This is not a tit for tat system. Just because someone takes your seat, do not mean they need to give you a seat in return.
