A Place to Play with Clay

Wendy and I met in 2017 at a holiday market where I saw, loved, and bought a small hand-coiled ceramic vessel from her. A few months later, we rented space in a small basement studio in Toronto, paying too much rent for a space that was too small with a nightmarish landlord. Commiserating over furnace noises and spring flooding, we decided to create our own studio space to share with others.

In September 2018, we found a bright space with 20-ft ceilings and large windows in an industrial building with other small businesses. The Sterling Road neighbourhood has a burgeoning art scene with a community full of sweet folks. We took the leap, signed a lease, and hit the ground running!

A year later, we’re thankful to our friends and family for lending their cars, hands, and hearts for the support they’ve provided. We’re grateful for the opportunity to teach classes, make wall-hangings with tiny foot prints, host birthday parties to Kidz Bop soundtracks, and provide a place for talented local artists to feel excited and inspired to play with clay.
