Pottery Painting and Ceramic Arts Studio
Wheeling All Day: Friday and Sunday
Fire Escape Studio is introducing 2 hour time slots for our wheel sessions all Friday and Sunday long. Please call ahead to book.
Wheel sessions are available for individuals and pairs. These are instructor led orientations that are designed to give 'just a taste' of what it is like to throw pottery on the 'wheel'. We charge $40 per person, this includes instruction, materials, and kiln services.
Instructor led 2 hour wheel orientations can be booked for non-wheel days and times as well. These are super relaxed sessions done outside of the studio's normal painting times. Please ask for availability. We will also book groups of 4 - 6 people for extended 3 hour sessions. After hours bookings are normally $45 per person. Please note that Groupon's and outside discounts can not be applied to our Wheel sessions.
Handbuilding sessions are an instructor lead exploration of the basics of clay work. We cover the 3 main techniques that have been used to manipulate clay into beautiful functional objects since the dawn of time: Coiling, Slabbing, and Pinch pot.
These sessions can be booked just like the wheel sessions. They are available in back to back time slots on Friday and Sunday, or as an after hours bookings. Hand building is a great activity for larger groups. We can book 1 - 11 people. Prices can range from $25 - $45.
All packages for 5 kids or teens includes a complimentary 4x4 birthday wishes tile painted by our in-studio artist. No studio fee is charged for the birthday person. Any extra kids will be offered the discounted prices up to 9 kids.
All packages for 10 kids or teens includes a 6x6 birthday wishes tile painted by our in-studio artist. No studio fee is charged for the birthday person, and their friends get to paint for half off studio. Any extra kids will be offered the discounted prices up to 15 kids.
Unfortunately we can not combine packages with 'Groupons' or with special day discounts.

Team Building: How Fire Escape can help.
Painting ceramics is an incredibly unique way to build a team. Having a good time doing something creative together is just the beginning. Your team members will come away with a guaranteed work place conversation starter, a lasting, personalized and useful momento.
Its totally up to you on how you want to organize your Fire Escape hosted team event. As food for thought here are a few suggestions that build on the basics.
1. Your team members can paint one another's mug. This idea is a big favourite of the Glenmore boating instructors. They like to draw for who will paint what mug. This is done in secret so everyone has to guess at the end which mug is for who.
This is a creative way for your team to get to know one another.
2. Your team can do one or two larger projects together. Maybe a centre piece for the board room or a communal tea pot. Everyone gets creative input on how this project comes together. Perhaps your team members want to express your groups mission or values on the piece.
We can even throw a bit of a creative wrench in the mix by giving your group an adventure box full of unconventional tools for their projects. Now they have to problem solve how they can use the tools to achieve their end results. When the final piece is done everyone has something they can appreciate and see their handy work in.
3. Pass it along project. This can be one large group item or one piece for each person. In this group project everyone participates in the the creative 'conversation' that is happening on one another's pieces. Maybe everyone gets a mug and everyone else contributes something encouraging or symbolic on that mug.
