GRASSHOPPER:- We operate a "grasshopper" system, whereby if you miss a class, you have the option to" jump" on to another session in the following weeks to catch up. In this way you will not loss any money due to holidays or illness. This system only works if you inform us of any sessions you are going to miss, so that we can offer them to another student waiting for a space.
RAKU:- The Summer Barbeque Raku session is a popular event, which includes lots of food and flames.  You can see images of this event and pictures of the class work by clicking on the links at the bottom.
CHRISTMAS PARTY:- In December when the classes have finished we organise an optional get-together where we eat, drink and merrily announce the winners of the Project Competition.
OPEN STUDIO:- On occasion we have an extended FREE FAMILY AND FRIENDS session, where you can spend time catching up on some work, or bringing along a friend or family member to explore the clay. These sessions are for members only and each student is responsible for any work their guest produces.

DO YOU DO TASTER SESSIONS, PRIVATE CLASSES FOR INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS?  Yes.  Please contact us for more details.
CAN MY SON/DAUGHTER JOIN THE CLASSES?  As the classes are specifically for adults the youngest we will accept is a sensible15 years old.
WHERE AM I ON THE WAITING LIST?  Contact us anytime for an update on your exact position.
ARE MY CONTACT DETAILS SAFE WITH YOU?  Zoo Ceramics will never pass on your personal details to any other party without your permission.
ARE YOU GOING TO CREATE MORE CLASSES?  Alas no, as we also like to make some work too!
DO YOU OFFER A TASTER SESSION?  No, as we already offer private classes. Also we have created these extensive pages with lots of images that we feel fully explain our classes. You are very welcome to come and visit the pottery to see examples of the students' work and to see where and how we run the classes.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM UNABLE TO FINISH THE COURSE - WILL I GET A REFUND FOR ANY MISSED CLASSES ? Refunds may be given for specific cases, such as long term illness or allergies to materials, but this may be dependent us finding a replacement for the space.
DO YOU DO THROWING ON A WHEEL AS PART OF YOUR CLASSES?  We do have a kick wheel and are soon to acquire an electric wheel, but it is not our specialism and may not be available for use on the busy group sessions.
CAN YOU RECOMEND ANY THROWING CLASSES IN THE LINCOLNSHIRE AREA?  Sadly I have looked on-line and there does not seem to be many available. You could try Steve Leaning at the End Room in Sleaford, the Rufford Centre, Design Factory and the the Lincoln Art College are worth a try. You could also visit local arts and craft shows and chat to the local potters to see if any of them know a potter who is running classes.
