Policies, Terms & Conditions

Throw Clay LA Safety & Restrictions

  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. Students have five days after their last class to finish any trimming and up to two weeks to complete any glazing. All completed work must be picked up from Throw Clay LA no later than 4 weeks after the student’s final 6-week class. Throw Clay LA is not responsible for any 6-week classwork left longer than 4 weeks. It is the student’s responsibility to pick up their work or arrange to have it shipped.

  7. Pottery made in One-Time classes is ready for pickup in 3 to 5 weeks. You will be notified by email - we suggest checking your spam folder if it's been longer than 5 weeks. Friends who came to class together may get notifications a week or more apart - this is normal. (Call and check only if it's been more than 5 weeks from the day you took class.)

  8. We like all participants to know that when working with clay there is a chance a pot may face challenges during firing. We try our best to make it right for you on the off chance this should this happen to your piece.

  9. One-Time class participants are responsible for picking up pottery on time. It is the participant's responsibility to check their spam for Throw Clay LA notifications. Any pieces remaining 15 days after your second email notification will be considered abandoned and will no longer available for pick up.  

  10. One-Time classes are adult classes unless specified as a kids' class. Children ages 13-17 may attend a One-Time class if they are accompanied by an adult taking the same class. Six-week courses are for adults 18 and over.
