Some of the frequently asked questions answered.

1How can I become a member?
You need to be comfortable working on your own, and know how to use the machines in the studio.
2What happens when I go on holiday? Who looks after my work?
Let us know how long you will be away, we will pack your clay/glazes, work, in a box, and we will keep it for you. We will freeze your membership once a month.
3Where can I buy tools, clay and glazes?
We sell a range of tools, clay and glazes to our members at the studio. Clay and glazes purchased outside the studio will not be allowed.
4How do you calculate the kiln volume per member?
We measure the height, width and depth; multiply the three and get the cubic measurement of your artwork. We will then keep adding them up until you reach your limit.
5Can I bring a friend to keep me company as I work?
Everyone is welcome at Yadawei. We do however request that your guest does not touch anything, and we invite you and your guest to make use of our living room to relax and unwind. If your friend wants to work with clay, he is welcome to purchase a day pass
6How are workshops different from classes?
The purpose of a workshop is to focus on one specific skill or technique. Workshops are one-time events and do not require a long-term weekly commitment like classes.
7What can I expect during a workshop?
You can expect to learn great new skills and techniques, and meet like-minded pottery enthusiasts with different skill levels. You will also enjoy very personal interaction with the teaching artist. There will be breaks during the day for you to relax and reflect on your masterpiece. The aim is for you to learn and there is no pressure on you to complete any artwork during a workshop.
8What do I wear to a workshop? Do I need to bring anything with me?
Pottery is a wonderfully dirty business. Please wear loose, comfortable clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty or are easy to clean. We recommend that you bring a bottle of water and a snack, and we have a fridge and a microware in our pantry, which you are welcome to make use of. You don’t need to bring any tools unless specified in the workshop details, but it’s always a good idea to bring a notebook along to keep your own notes.
9What happens at a typical workshop?
We always begin our workshops with introductions so that everyone can get acquainted. We will then explain the teaching goals of the workshop and discuss the plan for the day. Breaks are always scheduled before new concepts are introduced. 15 minutes before the end of the workshop, participants will be kindly asked to clean up and ensure everything’s ready for the next day.
10How long are workshops?
Workshop times vary and you can check the specific details of each workshop on our website ‘Events’ page. Please feel free to contact us if you need any clarification or more information.
11What is your attendance policy? Can I get a refund?
Once you have paid your place is booked and will remain available to you unless you have notified us otherwise. You are encouraged to attend the full length of the workshop to ensure you get the full benefit. In the event that you are unable to attend for any reason, it is at the teacher’s discretion whether to repeat the missed information. Please note that we have a no refund policy and are unable to reimburse anyone for absenteeism.
12How can I get a certificate for a workshop I attended?
We are not curriculum based, we teach you pottery as a hobby.
