Frequently Asked Questions
Got any questions about our pottery kits, our classes or digital products? We got you covered!
Do the kits come with instructions?
Yes, in German or English! Usually, if the parcel is going to a German address I will ship them in German. I can also provide them in Italian or French. This is a physical 8-page document, professionally printed, with step-by-step instructions for making a slap cup. Additionally, you find more instructions on our blog!
Do I need any additional materials to work with the pottery kits?
The kits contain all the tools and materials required. You only need some water and a cloth for your work surface.
Can I burn the clay in my oven at home for faster drying?
The clay in our kits can be burned in the oven, but I advise against firing clay in the same oven you use for food preparation and consumption. Therefore, I would recommend to just air-dry the clay.
Can I fire the clay in a kiln?
The clay in our kits can be fired in a kiln up to 1040C. This means that you first need to get it bisque fired (900C) and then it can be glazed and fired again up to 1040C.
How long will it take for my piece to be completely dry?
It depends a bit on the size of your piece and how thick its walls are, but two to four days should do it.
Can I use it for food, water or drinks?
No! Air-dry clay is not safe for either food or liquids, even with an applied sealant.
Online live Classes
How do I register for and join the live class?
You book the class and checkout just as you would with any other product. If you selected the class with materials, I will send them to a few days before the workshop takes place, with tracking of course. A few days before the class, I will send a link to a Zoom call that you join at the given time. If you use a desktop or notebook, you don't need to download an application but can just directly participate from your browser (like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).
Is there a recording of the class afterwards?
No, but there will be some additional materials I will send out afterwards, so you don't need to keep notes (but of course you can if that's your thing!).
When will you have physical live classes?
Soon, I hope. But right now the pandemic doesn't allow me to conduct them safely. Be sure to follow me on Instagram or Twitter or subscribe to the newsletter to find out when in-place classes are happening again.
