About this event

Description

We're sorry, but online registration is not allowed for this activity. Please contact us during regular business hours for registration information.

Prefer to create at home? We will be facilitating contactless pick-up and drop-off of clay and projects for firing this session.
Registration for the Ceramics at Home program is available to Place des Arts students who have previously taken an eight-week ceramics class at Place des Arts. Registration includes firing for up to 25 pieces per student (clay is sold separately). By registering for this program, the student agrees to the procedures outlined below.
Production - Each student may make a maximum of 25 pieces during the session. The maximum pot size is 12” in diameter at the base, 15” diameter at the top and 18” tall. For rectangular or free-form pieces, maximum size is 12” x 18”. Pieces less than 3” in diameter are two for one. - Clay is available for purchase and pick-up from the Registration Desk at Place des Arts; clay types are subject to availability
Project drop-off - Projects can be dropped off at Place des Arts beginning on Monday, January 17, 2022 during the following hours: Monday - Friday: 9:30am-8:30pm Saturday: 9:30am-4:30pm Sunday: 1:30-4:30pm - Project drop-off deadline is Saturday, March 19, 2022 - Please come to the front door off Brunette Avenue, near the Spirit Bear statue. - All projects must have your name or initials clearly marked on the bottom and projects must be in a box clearly labelled with your first and last name. - Before firing, the technician may stamp your work on the bottom so that no confusion results over the ownership of the work.
Project pick-up - As work is fired, you will receive an email from Place des Arts when your work is ready for pick-up
Glazing - If you wish to glaze your projects, students may purchase glazes directly from Greenbarn Potters Supply, 9548 - 192nd Street, Surrey, BC, (604) 888-3411; IMPORTANT NOTE: only purchase cone 6 glazes, DO NOT purchase cone 06! Mention you are a Place des Arts student to ensure you purchase the right glaze. - No reduction firings will be completed this session - If you are dropping off glazed projects to be fired, please include a clay disc or kiln “cookie” that is the same size of your project. During firing, any glaze drips will land on the cookie which prevents a lot of kiln shelf maintenance. For instructions on how to make cookies, check out Pottery Crafters on YouTube (Pottery Crafters also has some other great videos!) - Access to the Place des Arts glaze room is not permitted.
Firings - Firings will be completed each week based on the volume and size of what is made, it is not necessarily first come, first served.

Online registration for this class is unavailable. Please contact us by phone (604-664-1636 ext 0) or in person (at 1120 Brunette Ave. Coquitlam) to register.
