WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BOOK

What to expect:

The improvers course does NOT include clay - you can purchase clay and additional tools in the ground floor Supply Store. There are basic tools in the studio which you are free to use. 

You are advised to bring your own apron but we will have some on offer if you forget. Clay can dry your hands so do bring some hand moisturiser with you if you can.

Before you start a class with CLAY please look through our health and safety advisories.
