Workshop – General Questions

How to sign up for courses?

Please go to Studio to see the available courses and click the sign up button under each description.

How much are your courses?

You will find the prices of our courses above each course description. 

Do you have one-off workshops?

No, we do not. This is because we focus mainly on courses that will allow us to teach students the start to end of the pottery technique, such as wedging, throwing, trimming and glazing.

What course should I take if I am a complete beginner?

Pottery usually begins with hand-building so for absolute beginners we will recommend hand-building before getting to wheel-throwing. Handbuilding allows you to get acquainted with clay and its properties. It is also an important foundation to have so you can complement your pieces on the wheel later on as well.

What if I have signed up and can’t make it for the classes?

As we only offer structured courses that have been planned weeks beforehand, we ask for your commitment after signing up as there is strictly no refunds or exchanges for credits.

Can I sign up for Open User Scheme if I did not learn from ves?

Yes you can. However, to make good use of your time during the Open User's, we only accept sign ups if you have taken at least one Intro to Wheel Throwing course and one Wheel Throwing Extension course at ves, or the equivalent (12-15 classes) at another studio. 

Can I park at the studio for class?

There are no parking lots at the studio. Please kindly park in the nearby public parking space. 

Collection of class pieces?

Collection of pieces are available one month after your glazing class. If the pieces are left with us more than 3 months after the glazing class, we reserve the right to dispose of them. Unsigned works will not be fired in the studio. We will also not be responsible for missing pieces, so do make sure to sign your works clearly as we have had disappointments of other students taking another's piece by mistake.
