Pieces will be ready for collection within three weeks of your lesson, to arrange pickup from our Studio at 120 Kentish Town Road, NW1 9PY . Customers have an eight-week window from the initial collection notice to retrieve their pottery. After ten weeks, uncollected items will be donated unless we hear back from you. We do not have the storage space for forgotten pots.
In the event that your pottery breaks or sustains any damage during the glazing and firing process, we will do our best to provide a replacement or offer compensation in the form of a voucher. Please note that handmade pottery may experience cracks or explosions in the kiln, and painted ready-made pottery may have surface imperfections or glaze spotting. We make every effort to prevent these issues, but ceramics can be unpredictable and these events may occur despite our efforts. We appreciate your understanding and hope you continue to enjoy the creative journey with us.
