* PLEASE NOTE: All of our classes and workshops are now held at our new studio at 811 Princess Ave.

Join us every second Monday night from 7:00pm – 9:00pm and learn how to make-a-mug using hand-building techniques. No previous clay experience needed.

This workshop begins with a quick tour of the studio followed by step-by-step instructions on how to make a mug. In addition to the basic construction of your mug, we will teach you a variety of decorative techniques including; stamping, sprig moulds, textured rollers and slip trailing, ensuring your mug will be a true one-of-a-kind.


Each participant is given enough clay to make 1 large mug. Once complete you choose the colour and our highly trained staff will complete the process by glazing and then firing your mug in one of our kilns (clay ovens). A single glaze colour is included, add an additional glaze colour for just $5 more.

We will send you an email as soon as your mug has been fired and is ready for sipp’n!
