Our classes have been successful because of the cooperation and ongoing communication with all the studio users and we thank you for that. It is our hope that all students and staff continue to feel safe in our studios and for that we ask for your ongoing efforts in helping us enforce the policies we have in place. See Protocol and Policies here.

As a not-for-profit organization with a small team, we are extremely grateful that we are able to make this shift online to make signing up easier for everyone. We hope you can all help us keep growing by being patient when issues do arise.

Thank you so much for your support!

Online registration

We understand that it is an exciting yet stressful time trying to register for the class you want. The first day of registration is very busy as we fill spaces on a first-come-first-serve basis and have limited space.

Please check your junk/spam folders for confirmation emails.

Registration Process:

  • If you have an account with us, log in before registration opens and give yourself enough time to recover your password.
  • Please make sure you have all necessary information (Student’s Name, E-mail, and Phone Number).
  • If a class is not for the same person as the person placing the order, please leave a note on your order with the intended student’s name, email and phone number. 
  • You will have 10 minutes at the online check out to complete registration.
  • Payment must be taken at the time of registration to secure your spot in the class. (Note: HST is NOT included in the listed course fees.)
  • Students must be 16 years of age or older (unless the course outline specifies a specific age range for younger students).

Waitlists: We maintain a waitlist for each course and encourage students to add themselves to it. If we have enough students and if there is a day available in the schedule with an instructor available to teach, we will run a second class.

Accessibility: Some of the workshops we offer can be physically demanding. If you have any accessibility concerns, please do not hesitate to call the Centre to discuss these concerns prior to registering.

Open Studio Saturdays

We’re temporarily pausing the Saturday Open Studio Sessions during the Winter Term as we review the services our studios can support. We appreciate your understanding during this transition.

Our Ceramics & Jewellery studios are available for rent, to users with experience. There is a technician available for questions, but you must be capable of working independently.

Students registered in an eligible class can receive one (1)  3-hour complimentary Open Studio Session. (Limit: 1 session per student per eligible course.). This must be completed within the term they were enrolled in class.

Open Studios will Start October 15th and will run until November 26th. Registration starts October 1st.

The costs of Open Studio will be $30 for non-students and $25 for students currently enrolled in a class. Taxes are included in this price.


Open Studio Saturdays,  mornings (9:30-1:00) and afternoons (1:30-5:00) time slots available for a max of 6 people. 

Registration for Open Studio booking requests will only happen about three (3) weeks in advance of each Open Studio Date. If you do not see a date listed, it means that it is more than 3 weeks away.

We will confirm your Open Studio attendance one week in advance via email on Saturday by 4pm.
