Hand Building with Raw Clay
Ok, you’ve painted one of our ceramic pieces, now it’s time you tried creating your own pottery from raw clay! We’ve got instruction sheets, lots of tools, and a creative staff to help you. Just bring yourself, an old shirt maybe, and your imagination.
You can purchase blocks of raw clay for $17, $24, or $30, all-inclusive. We can show you the age-old techniques of slab rolling, pinching, and coiling. Make a pot, a Christmas decoration, a bowl or mug – why one customer even made a piano! The sky’s the limit with this craft. Talk about a stress-reducer! There’s nothing quite so “grounding” as playing with raw clay. Very earthy!
After you finish molding your piece, we’ll let it dry for several days and then fire it in the kiln. When you see it the second time, it’ll be ready to paint, just like our other bisque. Then use our regular paints, and we’ll fire it again. Nothing says “original” like your own clay masterpiece!
Check out our address sign over the front door at Clay Café to see what is possible at Clay Café in hand-building. This sign was made from 4 large slabs of clay – and we were surprised they all fit in the kiln!
Give the gift of a clay day at Clay Café with our colourful gift certificates! Hand-made by our staff on six inch tiles, our popular gift certificates come in denominations of $10-$50. They are redeemable anytime. Treat that special someone to painting fun at the studio – guaranteed to be a great present!
Frequent Fire Club
Have you got the painting bug? It’s contagious, we know. Let us give you a free membership to our “Frequent Fire Club” and you’ll earn towards free pieces each time you paint!
After 8 visits, we’ll take the average of what you spent each time, and give you a gift certificate for that amount. Easy!
New in 2004, we now have a Frequent Fire Club card for families. Bring everyone in the family and paint 16 pieces at Clay Café – then you’ve got a free one!
Our staff is always experimenting with great new ideas for painting on pottery. When we invent something spectacular, we like to share it with our customers. We paint up a sample on a 6 inch tile, and write the painting instructions on the back. Just take the tile to your table and follow the instructions. You’ll find the technique tiles at the paint bar.
