Hello! 
I love the pottery wheel and I hope you will too! Martin, from the Oak Bay studio, helped to develop this beautiful mug. We had so much fun practicing the stack and slam technique by combining 3 clays - white speckled stoneware clay, brown speckled stoneware clay, and dark brown stoneware. We then shaped the mugs on the clay wheel. In this class, we cover the stack and slam technique, centering, and handle making. 
Check out our youtube video for more details!

How The Clay Workshop Works: 

Step 1: Learn How To Stack and Slam, and Throw

$25 per hour/visit/station

  • Your first class is for creating your mug.
  • One mug. Each potter receives up to 400 g total of up to 3 different clays. 
  • Bring a friend for an extra $10 (per hour)!  You and your friend will share a clay wheel. You can have up to 2 people per wheel if you are in the same bubble.
  • We recommend at least 1.5 hours for this portion.
  • Space is limited.

Step 2: Glazing Your Clay
$15 per hour/visit/station

Your second class is for glazing. Each potter receives access to a high-fire clear glaze to show off the stunning marbled mug body.

When to book?

  • Please book glazing for 7 days after your throwing class if possible.
  • Bring a friend for an extra $5 (per hour)! You can have up to 2 people per glazing station if you are in the same bubble.

Please make sure to book both a throwing time & a glazing time.

How much time to book?

We recommend booking at least 1.5 hours for the first portion of this workshop.  Only one hour of glazing time is needed for your 2nd visit.

If you go over your pre-booked time, you will be charged for another full hour. No exceptions. If you are late, your start time will be taken as the time you booked.


Let’s understand each other & be happy. Make sure to read all the policies.

  • Please be realistic in how much time you book. You can finish each of the building/glazing classes within 1 hour BUT if you want to chat lots, drink a coffee/tea /hot chocolate, or generally take your time, we recommend booking more time if there is space.
  • If you go over your pre-booked time, you will be charged for another full hour. No exceptions. You will be charged for the time you booked, if you are late your start time will be taken as the time you booked.
  • You can have up to 2 people per station if you are in the same bubble.
  • Please respect the number of pieces limits.
  • Please respect the number of age limits.
  • We will fire your pieces. :)
  • We will not have space for observers/helpers. Each person attending must be registered (i.e. parent and child are both registered). No exceptions.
  • If you go over your pre-booked time, you will be charged for another full hour. No exceptions so please be realistic in how much time you book based on how long it took you to make 1 happy planter.
  • No credits or refunds for unused time.
  • All pieces at any stage will of making will be kept in the studio for a maximum of 2 weeks. For example, If you build a piece ad don’t book glazing time within 2 weeks we will not be able to store your piece. We are not able to call or email reminders. After 2 weeks, please assume it is has been either recycled or tossed.
