What should I bring?
If you have any trimming tools, please bring those to class. You will be required to buy at minimum, one bag of clay ($25.00), which can be purchased on the first day of class from Studio72. Took kits are also available for purchase for $15.00 but are not required. All other tools/materials will be available to use for the duration of the course.

What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing that you won’t mind getting clay on. Most clays do not stain and can wash out, however if your class is working with iron rich clays then staining may occur. The studio will provide aprons for all students to wear while working. We recommend long hair be tied back and jewelry be removed before class begins.

How does the glazing and firing of my work, work?
Glazing and firing of your work is included in the course fee. Pick-up is 2 weeks after the final class.
