HOW IT WORKS
Step 1: Make
Spend up to 1 hour creating with your besties, friends or family creating your awesome clay piece.

Come on in and have fun hand building from scratch your clay piece following our curators’ step by step instructions.

To register, simply choose your location, choose a time for the first scheduled hour and register online for the workshop.

Step 2: Glaze
After your clay is dry (this takes 1-2 weeks) we fire your clay for the 1st time in the kiln.

This means your clay is now bisqued and ready for underglaze. Come back! It is now time for you to return to the studio and glaze within 2 weeks of bisquing in our amazing glazing room!

Step 3: Pick Up & Post
Last, we fire your piece in the kiln again. Give us 3 days for the second firing and then you have 14 days to pick it up. Easy Peasy!

Post your awesome creation on ! Tag us @4CatsStudio and #4CatsStudio.

Each week we choose a random post to win a free workshop for 2!

PAINTING INFO
Painting
In our beautiful studios, classes introduce students to fun, skill-building projects using professional art materials and tools.

Students learn to plan and work step-by-step to express themselves. They’ll create layered compositions using professional art supplies such as acrylics, paint pens, etching tools, ink and more.

Canvas Stretching
Some canvas projects are created on 100% unstretched cotton canvas, included in the prices of the class/workshop. Stretching options are available for an additional charge.

At 4Cats, we stretch your artwork gallery-wrap style on 1.5″ deep stretcher bars. With a gallery-wrap, the artwork is wrapped around the sides of the frame and stapled on the back. This means no frame is required, it’s ready to hang!

Upgrade to canvas stretch can be purchased in studio.

Step 2: Glaze
Now that your piece is dry, return to the studio to add the final layer of liquid vitreous medium to seal it all in. This step takes place in our amazing glazing room! No need to schedule your visit, drop in anytime between 10am – 7pm.
