 Clay Shed Terms and Conditions

Non - Attendance

Should you arrive late to class or in the event of non-attendance, we regret that we cannot provide alternative studio time. Nor can we swap sessions with additional days or tutors. Classes are at fixed times and days to cover the cost of tuition and the specific tutor who is running that session.


All payment for classes and workshops is made via our website and include booking fees.


Full Refund: We can provide a full refund (minus £5 booking fee) 20 days or more before the start date of said course or workshop.

50% Refund: We will refund 50% of total fees paid (minus £5 booking fee) between 20 - 10 days before the start date of said course or workshop.

No Refund: We provide no refunds 9 days before the start date of said course or workshop.

Additional Material & Firing Costs

Should a student exceed the general allocated allowance of materials provided, Clay Shed will charge an additional £5 per 1 kg of fired pot. If a student’s work requires additional firings or is of a scale which requires a larger percentage of our kilns, an additional surcharge will be added. Details of which will be decided by Clay Shed.

Collecting Work.

8 week courses: Work must be collected within 14 days after the final session otherwise it will be discarded. Any incomplete work (greenware or bisque) may be thrown away unless otherwise discussed with your tutor. Please arrange collection times with your tutor via email info@clayshed.co.uk

Workshops/Taster Sessions: Clay Shed will email to inform you that your work is complete and ready for collection (usually within 3 weeks of your session). Please arrange a suitable time for collection. If you require your work to be posted, please inform Clay Shed via email info@clayshed.co.uk. This service will be charged to the student.

*We cannot guarantee that work will not be damaged during the firing in the kiln. We regret that we provide no compensation for this eventuality*
