  • FAQ | Gloucester Pottery

    FAQ Programs Registration Clay & Firing Hours & Location Do you offer private lessons? This programming is currently on hold due to high volume of full session classes, lack of instructors, and studio space availability. Please contact the studio office for specific requests. Do you have open studio time or a membership program? No, the Gloucester Pottery School operates solely as a school and the studio is not available for public use outside of class time. Do you offer make-up lessons for classes missed? Make-up lessons or substitute classes are not offered. However, if you have missed your last glazing class, arrangements can be made with the studio office to have you attend an alternate glazing class if available. If you cannot join another glazing class, we will happily glaze your pieces for you with your selected glazes. If you have missed a wheel throwing or trimming class, please contact the office so we can make arrangments for either extra pieces to be thrown or trimmed for you. Where can I find examples of kids projects to choose from for birthdays and workshops? On the Book a Party - Children's Handbuilding Party page of our website you will find a gallery of sample projects your child can choose from for a birthday party or workshop. When will my pottery be ready for pick up? Pottery will be ready approximately 3 weeks from: - The last day of class (for students enrolled in a full session) - The day of drop off (for clients who have brought in pots outside of class time) - The day of the birthday or workshop Please note that you will receive an email from our Studio Manager when the pieces are ready to be picked up. We recommend checking your junk/spam folder and calling the studio office if you have not heard from us after 3 weeks. What happens if I miss my glazing class? The instructor/technician can glaze the pieces for you. If you know in advance you will be missing the class, choose the colours ahead of time and we can get them glazed and fired with the rest of the class. Otherwise follow up studio manager regarding what you want to do. You can take your bisqueware home and bring them to a future glazing class in the next session you are registered in. You can sign up for a glazing session. Due to our packed schedules, glazing sessions have been scheduled Wednesday mornings (10am-12pm) at the end of each session. You can contact Studio manager to register. We recommend this for students who have experience glazing. First timers will struggle in a glazing session as we may not have an instructor available to teach them the basics.

  • Resources | Gloucester Pottery School

    Tools our staff recommend Students have been asking for years for a list of tools. This is not an extensive list but it is a few of our favourites and we will work on adding more. Each image links to where you can buy it. Textured Rolling Pins GPS has several different rolling pins like these in our studio we order from Sharon Hoppe Designs Solid Falcon rolling pin Large solid wooden rolling pin Bamboo Brush These brushes are our favourite for applying slip, underglaze and glaze. Link is to PSH but most pottery stores will carry them in a variety of sizes Hake Brush These brushes are great for covering a large area in slip on glaze. Available at most pottery supply stores Mud Tools Small Shredder These handy little shredders are great for cleaning up rims, leveling out pots and so many other tasks. Blades are replaceable. Also available in a long flat version Mud tools Cutting Wire These are a staff favourite for cutting wires. They wire doesn't kink and these handles are much easier to use than the wood ones. Found at almost all pottery supply stores GR Pottery Forms We have a number of GR Pottery Forms in Room 1 for making plates and trays. Most pottery supply stores will carry them Mud Tools When we set up individual tool kits for classes we made sure to splurge a little and include these. Each colour is a different hardness and they come in a variety of shapes Banding Wheel These are the banding wheels you will find in Room 1. They are really similar to the Shimpo but a bit more affordable. Staff and students love them. MDO Plywood Medium Density Overlay (MDO) Plywood is arguable to best material to work on. It is smooth so no texture when rolling slabs, easy to clean so no dust like canvas, porous so things don't stick too much and very durable. All of our handbuilding tables are topped with it. You can make ware boards, bats and more from it. This material is commonly used by sign painters. It can sometimes be a bit tricky to track down, Home Hardware building centers and other smaller specialized companies will carry it or can order it in. It's a bit pricey but it is worth it.
