Terms & Conditions

Throw Clay LA Safety​

  1. As you are learning to use the equipment, be sure to follow the instructions and safety recommendations of your teacher.

  2. Do not use any equipment you are unfamiliar with.

  3. Students are not to operate the kiln(s), nor transfer the work they contain.

  4. Tie long hair back while working on the potter’s wheel.

  5. Remove jewelry from hands and wrists so they won’t interfere with your work or catch on equipment.

  6. All completed work must be picked up from Throw Clay LA no later than 6 weeks after the student’s final class. Throw Clay LA is not responsible for any work left longer than 6 weeks. It is the student’s responsibility to pick up their work or arrange to have it shipped (we can ship anywhere for a $30 flat fee).

Media Release


Throw Clay LA has my permission to use, without limitation or obligation, photographs, film footage, tape, or video recordings, which may include your image, voice, or artwork for purposes of promoting or interpreting Throw Clay LA programs. If you prefer we not use your media, please let us know in writing ahead of class/studio time.

Cancellation Policy


Because our classes are often full, we ask that you cancel 5 days in advance of your first class for a refund so we can re-book the wheel. For Weekly Courses, we are generally able to accommodate one missed class, depending on an available wheel. All refunds are issued after deducting a $5 processing fee to cover costs incurred.
