Additional Needs and Physical ability
PCAI is an accessible venue for most although there is one step to the bathroom to navigate. A wheelchair accessible bathroom is available nearby.
Using the pottery wheel can be physically challenging for some with the following conditions: arthritis in or injury to hands; neck or back pain, reduced strength or limited motion in upper arms and shoulders; later trimester of pregnancy; Hip or Foot injury.
There are ways to modify the wheel throwing experience but please consider your physical capacity prior to enrolling in a wheel throwing class. We provide many options hand building with clay, as an alternative to the pottery wheel experience. Please feel free to contact us to discuss any addition needs further, so we may be of assistance.
Your materials fee covers a bag of clay, coloured slips and glazes per student.
Additional materials such as underglaze and tissue transfers can be purchased from the studio and are not included in materials fee.
For home studio use Clay can be purchased from the studio at discounted prices however orders need to be placed in advance.
PCAI kilns are always full, due to large student numbers. Occasionally we can fire some extra pieces, however a cost for bisque and glaze firings for work made outside of class time is necessary. Pieces can only be fired when kiln space is available as priority is given to PCAI enrolled student work. There are kiln firing services available at Blackwattle ceramics.
If an excess of materials is used during class, students may be asked to refine their work and select only the best for firing or to pay an additional fee for kiln space and materials used.
