kit questions

the answers to all your burning questions...

 

can i leave my clay to air dry forever?

you can still enjoy your creations without taking them to a kiln, they just won’t be food and water safe. you can use them as a dry flower vase or ring tray! take care  they are a little more fragile.

do i have to fire my clay?

if you want to use your creations for eating and drinking, then yes! getting your clay glazed and fired will make it safe, strong, food and waterproof.

how do i fire my clay?

leave your creations to dry for at least 10 days, then take them to your local kiln. make sure you email or call them first to organise payment and a drop off time that works for you both.

how do i make it colourful?

glaze is what adds colour to ceramics. chat to your local kiln about it and they will sort you out.

can i fire my clay at home?

sadly not, that would be the dream though! clay needs to be fired in 1000 or more degrees, so you'll need to take it to your local kiln. we’re working on kits that come with oven suitable clay, keep a look out for kit announcements.

what kind of clay do i have?

you'll find your clay type plus firing instructions on the back of your how-to guide, make sure you pass this info on when you get in touch with your local kiln. we’ve also added a little kiln card you can bring with you when you drop off your creations.

why isn't there a kiln near me?

we're trying our best to find kilns all over the country so each and every one of you can enjoy pottery. if there's not one around you yet, we are sorry. if you own a kiln and would like to join us, please get in touch!

is it safe for kiddies?

yes, under supervision. but make sure they don't put any clay in their little mouths.

how long will shipping take?

if you order before 3pm, we'll dispatch the very next working day. shipping takes around 3-5 days.
