Can I enroll my kid without an adult companion?
No, the promo requires 1 kid and 1 adult. We highly encourage joining the class with your kid as this is a great bonding activity :)
If the parent is not available can somebody else accompany the kid?
Yes, any relative or guardian can join the class as long as your kid is partnered with an adult companion. Please inform us in advance who will be joining so we can inform the teachers.
Are we allowed to reschedule?
We only have fixed schedules for this workshop so rescheduling is not allowed.
Can we bring our final outcomes home?
We will need to fire your pieces first before you are able to use them, the firing process will involve multiple stages like drying, and firing it twice which can take around 8-10 weeks. We will inform you when your works are ready for pick up.
Can I bring food or drinks?
Yes, snacks will be provided but you can bring your own food or drinks. You can even order from the dozens of restaurants around the Cubao Expo compound, and it will be delivered to you during your pottery session. Please give us a heads up so the teacher is informed :)
Can I bring pets?
Yes of course. Our founder (Ashe) is actually a gray tabby cat. We love pets! Please bring your pets :) We also assume that you will be responsible for them and will not disrupt any other ongoing classes in the other classrooms.
