Private Workshop

Did you know that any of our workshops can be booked as a Private Event? That's right, just you and your favourite people, creating awesome art and amazing memories in our bright, beautiful studio!

Browse our workshops here, and select "book private event" at checkout to reserve your Private event!

Private events are great for family get-togethers, celebrations, team building exercises and more.

Base price of $145 plus tax includes up to 10 people. Private workshops are also available for groups of 10 or more, at an additional cost. Any September Workshop can be booked as a private workshop.

You will have 1 hour to sculpt your masterpiece as a group. Then, you can either choose to have your clay bisqued and return to glaze your artwork 2-3 weeks later, or, head straight to the glazing room with your group to glaze your wet clay.

Learn clay hand building and glazing techniques to create your own ceramic mug! You get to make your very own mug from scratch from our awesome low-fire clay!

Please note: We do not have space for observers or helpers, all people attending must register. Private events include studio time only. No party time available. Instruction will only be provided for one project per private event.

POLICIES
CANCELLATION & TRANSFER
We do not offer refunds. We can transfer your booking if your booking is cancelled 24 hours prior to the workshop. We cannot provide a transfer after this time. Transfer requests are valid for 15 days.
The transfers are only successful if spaces are available with a confirmation email from 25Cats. The request to transfer the workshop must be sent more than 24 hours before the start of the workshop.
All registrations from the original order will be transferred altogether.
LATENESS
Running late? Aw man! We understand that sometimes there are unforeseeable issues. These things happen.  Do try your best to not disturb the class any further once you have arrived.
If you are 5-10 minutes late to a workshop it makes it really hard on the instructor and the class. This can be avoided by arriving 5-10 minutes early. The classroom itself will open up 5 minutes before the start of the class so you have time to grab an apron and settle in. If you know you are running late, please do your best to let the staff know to still expect you. Give us a call as soon as possible so the instructor can prepare your materials for you so you can jump right in when you get there. Please note that arriving late does not mean you will have an extra 10-15 minutes at the end. All workshops end at the scheduled time. If you are late you may not have the opportunity to complete all the steps in the project. If you are more than 15 minutes late to a workshop you are just not going to have enough time to complete the necessary steps in the project and you may not be able to join in. This is at the discretion of the instructor. Understand that we cannot offer a refund or credit if you are late and unable to join the class. We require 24 hours notice for any cancellations and transfers and could have had another artist in your place. Thank you for your understanding.

WHAT TO WEAR
Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy in. We use professional, artist grade materials that do not come out of clothing. Paint loves to jump on the least suspecting. The materials we use are non-toxic and wash out of hair and skin easily. Dress informally with loose, comfortable and casual clothing. 25Cats is not responsible for damage to personal property in the studio.
ARTWORK PICK UP
Our policy is to hold art for 2 weeks, please pick up the completed artwork within this time frame. We have lots of eager artists creating many wonderful things and we need to space for new projects. We do our best to hold on as long as possible as we know how precious it is.
CLAY
Any clay creations will be ready in 2-4 weeks depending on a variety of factors such as clay thickness, humidity and project size. Sorry, but we cannot rush the natural drying process as it would lead to kiln explosions and broken hearts. We fire clay to the best of our abilities in order of creation date. Kiln clay explosions are unlikely but they do happen. In the event of a clay piece being damaged due to a kiln explosion we are happy to provide emotional support and offer you a chance to come in and remake your art piece. You can check the status of your clay by following the link here or by clicking the ‘Clay Progress’ button at the top of the page.
PHOTOGRAPHIC MATERIAL
25Cats reserves the right to use photographic material for advertising and promotional purposes. If you do not want yourself or a family member photographed, please let us know at the beginning of the workshop.
MEDICAL EMERGENCY
In the event of a medical emergency, you provide permission to the business doing business as 25Cats Studio Gallery & Cafe, its owners, operators and franchisor from any and all liability to seek medical treatment for the participant.
All registrations agree to these policies by booking.
