Class Policy

*Federal, Provincial & Municipal guidelines must be followed. Please be familiar with local policies as they change.*

We want you and everyone else in the class to have a swell time! So here are our class policies, designed with everyone's best interests in mind:
  • Respect everyone in the class. We all have our strengths & weaknesses, so lets be supportive and kind to one another.
  • You are expected to clean up your own mud mess as best as possible within your station. Check out this youtube video.
  • Classes start at the time given, so please arrive early enough to get yourself settled in. We recommend 10 minutes.
  • If we cancel a class or workshop due to illness or weather, we will do our best to accommodate everyone when we reschedule.
  • If you cancel your participation 5 days or more before the first class starts, 100% credit  goes towards a future course at Amaranth Stoneware. Cancelled with less than 5 days notice: If we are able to replace your spot in the class then that's fantastic you'll get a credit towards a future class at Amaranth Stoneware. If we are not able to fill your spot then you forfeit your payment. We suggest sending a friend instead!
  • If you do not show up to the class you have registered for we cannot provide a refund or alternative class for you.
  • Full payment must be made before the first class begins.
  • Class & Workshop registration is non-refundable but we are happy to offer you class credit to put towards a future date or towards supplies or pottery in the store.
  • Classes are for those 12+ years old.
  • Classes are subject to cancellation or rescheduling if the minimum number of students is not met. If cancelled due to low participation a full refund will be offered.
  • We will contact everyone via email or phone once pottery is fired and ready for pickup. Any pieces not picked up for over 1 month after their final firing will be up for adoption.
  • Your own clay and tools MUST be taken home with you at the end of your class. Clay and tools left behind after your last class are donated / put up for adoption.
  • Lastly: relax, have fun, and GET MUDDY!

Some adjustments we've made since Covid19:

Because we all want to create, but stay safe at the same time we have some new guidelines in place:

1) Please stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or have been in contact with someone with Covid-19. We'll arrange for an alternate experience or offer as a makeup for you.

2) Masks are appreciated, but not necessary for now. Please be familiar with local municipal, provincial or federal policies.  Hand sanitizer is also available at the door. Please use it as you arrive and bonus points for on your way out!

3) Please maintain physical distancing while in the classroom. Check out this youtube video to clean at your wheel.
