  • Can I cover up for a session I miss?

Yes, you may for up to 2 sessions. We block 12 sessions for you to complete your 10 sessions.

  • Can I mix sessions from different batches?

We prefer not to as the teachers for different batches are different and every teacher has his/her own style of teaching! All the teachers are alumni of Sir J J School of Art, with a degree in Fine Art and a specialisation in Ceramics.

  • Can I register for the weekend batch and attend only Sundays?

At the moment our course is not structured for a once a week only format, so you would have to attend on both Saturdays and Sundays.

  • I am an absolute beginner, will I be able to do this?

Yes, the beginner’s course is designed even for those who have never indulged in any form of art or craft. You may not create masterpieces but you will end up surprising yourself!

  • How many students are taken in a batch?

We register a maximum of 4 students in a batch.

  • Do you have an advanced level as well?

Yes, once you have completed all your basics in the beginner’s module, you can register for an advanced module which is a customised module.

Studio Etiquette

  • Please clean all tools, wheel, equipment, desk space used during your session and put things back in their designated place

    Dear Rekha, I am really keen on learning pottery. I tried registering for the previous batch, but by the time I got around to it, the classes were full. I travel quite a lot so perhaps a shorter course would be more suitable for me. Do you do short courses for 2-3 days?
    Appreciate your reply.

    hello Rekha ma’am,
    I wanted to inquire if i could do both my sessions on saturday itself. as you have two time slots, can i do the sunday class on saturday itself in the 1:00 to 3:00 time slot.? As i do not live in mumbai. so travelling and stay would cause some issues.

    Hi Rekha. I am a senior citizen retired a couple of months back from my Govt job. I wish to do something creative in my free time which can make my day productive and later on I can have some earning also. Do you enroll people of my age in your course? Is there a possibility of getting absorbed in your team of teachers later on? Please reply.

    Hi! I will be staying in Mumbai during mid-January to end March 2018, and would like to work at your studio. I am an experienced hobby potter (20 years) but I’m sure I can learn something new. I can send you photos of my work if you like.
    Can we organize some sort of customized course for me?
    Thank you!
    PS I learned about you from my daughter, Shirin Petit, of the DSB International School.
