Registration for January Class Session
will be Saturday, December 10
at 11 AM

At 11 AM, on December 10, there will be a link above to our registration and payment site. The only way to register is through that site at that time.

We will have a low number of spaces available, which will fill very quickly.

Sometimes, because of the high number of people trying to purchase spaces at the same time, the system becomes overwhelmed. You may experience problems with registering. If your registration is successful, you will get a confirmation email.

Occasionally, when the system is overwhelmed, it may oversell spaces (sell more spaces than we have). If that happens, we will immediately reach out to people with oversold spaces and refund the money.

If you have questions about registration, please DO NOT call the studio. You will get a much faster response if you email alexclayeducation@gmail.com.

Current students have the opportunity to pay for the next session of their class before open enrollment. 

The number of spaces in our classes is limited, and our classes are typically full. Demand has been extremely high. We may have few or no class spaces with open registration for a given session.

We will list below how many spots we'll have available for each class.

Sorry, we  do not have a waitlist for new students.

Looking for One-Day Classes?

We are not currently offering our three-hour Try-It classes.

About the Classes

Classes are informal and kept small (8 students max) to allow instructors to provide each student with individual attention as needed.  Classes are 3 hours long, and extra studio time is included for all classes during Open Studio hours at no extra charge. 

 

Open Studio, which is time when students can work independently in the studio, is held on Tuesdays from 4-10pm and Saturdays from 12-8pm. 

 

Classes are open to students age 15 and up or to students 12 and up if a parent is also taking the class.

 

Class fees include instruction, Open Studio time, use of all studio glazing, and bisque and glaze firing. It does not include clay and tools, which can be purchased when you register for the class.

 

Classes with fewer than four students may be cancelled. If a class is cancelled, students would be able to join another class or could receive a full refund.

 

Inclement Weather Policy

Unless otherwise announced on our home page all classes will occur as scheduled.  We will place any cancelation notices on our Facebook page and home page and will make every effort to notify students via email.

 

Please e-mail alexclayeducation@gmail.com with any questions.
