Hand building at home with live video instruction

Beginning Monday, March 30th at 2pm

This newly-imagined series of workshops includes a (heavily) sanitized Work-Stop Workshop kit delivered to your door including clay, tool kits, and pickup of finished work to be fired. Ground yourself in creative practice and expand your community while learning basic hand-building techniques from home.

Join us from home for our new live-stream hand building class, designed to spark creativity and foster community while respecting the public health recommendations of our strange new reality.

Over the course of five two-hour sessions, shared live via Zoom, one of our talented instructors will guide you through the basic skills of hand building. You will pinch, coil, roll, sculpt, and carve objects such as bowls, hanging plant pots, serving dishes, boxes, vases, wall hangings, mugs, cups, or small sculptures, and learn decorative techniques like sgraffito. Registration is now live!

Our hearts are with you as you protect your health, care for your families, and navigate new employment landscapes. We hope that the Work-Stop Workshops series will create new opportunities for connection, growth, mindfulness, and play as we ride this out together. Your support and participation will enable us to continue to offer Calgary-based artists valuable employment and an opportunity to share their skills. As always, we are very grateful.

Registration and additional details on their website.



Our regular programming includes wheel throwing and hand building workshops for participants of all skill levels. Held in our upstairs studio, these workshops last six or eight weeks and group sizes are limited to twelve participants.

We look forward to opening our studio to the public again as soon as we’re able. Stay tuned to this page for updates and registration. If you have any questions, please contact us.
