ClayMotion has been operating from the shop in Ballarat now for a little over a month, and everything is going well – the kiln is connected and operational, new stock is arriving in the way of art and ceramic supplies, the casual studio space is finished and ready for use, and the gallery space looks great.
Another ClayMotion mission is to support local artists and crafters by taking their creations on consignment and displaying them in the shop window. We have some fantastic handcrafted gifts, and more are coming for our Christmas Shopping Night on December 8th from 5-8pm.
Enjoy a glass of complimentary champagne while getting your shopping done and supporting local makers. Gift wrapping will also be available …. so spread the word and share this post with your friends 🙂
In the meantime check out some pics of the new space, and hope to see you next Friday 🙂
Studio Space Hire Ballarat Victoria
We are half way through the term – where did that go?
It has been very hectic moving into the new studio, and waiting for powercorp to connect the new kiln 🙁 so there has been a bit of to-ing and fro-ing to kiln fire works in my home studio – but no breakages, so all is good!!
Mid term enrolments are welcome, and the dates for term 1, 2018 will be up on the website within the next two weeks, so stay tuned.
And remember the ClayMotion shop in Mair Street has some gorgeous handcrafted gifts created by local makers, so keep that in mind for Christmas! And there are art supplies too, for the art lovers in your life.
In the meantime check out these busy pictures from classes so far this term…. happy claying!
Adults Pottery Classes
Kids Pottery Classes
Its Official – we have moved! I haven’t had much time to post about the move on the blog, but have tried to do a bit of a story on the Instagram page. But – yes – we are now in…. classes began this week in the new space, and from now on, this is the space to be!!
And today (Sunday) we are having a grand opening – all welcome – I know it is a bit late notice for blog followers, but hopefully you can make it 🙂
This past weeks classes have been in the new space, with everyone loving the new studio.
Remember that mid term enrolments are welcome for both adults and children’s classes.
And also remember that new classes are being offered this term in Mosaics …. enrolments are open – see the SHOP to enrol 🙂
Services in the new shop will include:
Kiln Firing Service
Locally Made Giftware
Casual Studio Space hire
Ceramic & Art Supplies
I am so looking forward to being in Ballarat and being more accessible to to the community!!
Tonight was the first Tuesday Adults night class for term four. Other classes are on Wednesday mornings and Thursday nights … dates and times can be seen on the CLASSES page or you can ENROL online. Children’s classes start next week… and again you can ENROL online.
But the BIG news is that ClayMotion is relocating – we are moving into Central Ballarat – 34a Mair street to be exact …. which we are very excited about. We love that we will now be more central to the Ballarat community – drive, catch a bus, walk, or ride your bike!
As part of the move we will also be able to offer more services including more class choices, such as mosaics; casual studio space hire; exhibition space; locally made giftware; and a wider range of pottery and art supplies; plus continuing our existing services of birthday parties; firing service; mums and bubs; teambuilding and professional development.
Before moving into the new premise we have had to repaint, remove carpet and build work benches…. followed by moving in all the tools and equipment – a huge job! The first week of classes are being held in the Dunnstown studio, but we plan to be operating in Mair street for week two of classes, and we are well on schedule to do so!
And our first new class for the premise we are offering MOSAICS – this class is a unique blend between pottery and mosaics because students will create a sculpted centrepiece for their piece and build a mosaic around it using ceramic shards – click HERE for more info.
Children’s CLASSES will begin in the new premises, and will be held on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. ENROL HERE
We are super excited about our new development at ClayMotion and hop you are too !!
The end of the term is fast approaching, and that means lots of finished student works!
The term went by so fast with lots of exciting projects underway.
Term four dates and times for adults and children are updated on the CLASSES page and you can enrol easily in the SHOP. And remember GIFT CERTIFICATES are available for all classes in the SHOP
Also,exciting news for term four: mosaic classes will begin – more information coming soon. If you haven’t already, subscribe to the NEWSLETTER so you will not miss out the announcements about new programs and course.
And to finish off here are some pics of some of the finished artworks from this term 🙂
Children’s classes are now underway at the ClayMotion Studio for term three. Some children are returning students and others are new – this is ideal as students in the class are all at different levels and ages, and all work at their own pace. This makes for a relaxed and happy learning environment which is perfect for kids to reach their top potential.
And. yes, mid term enrolments or casual attendance is most welcome – just email or phone me on 0438382522 to discuss your requirements.
And now on to some pics from previous kids classes 🙂
