Frequently asked questions
Courses and lessons
I want to get into ceramics but I don't know where to start!
Our 2 or 3 hour taster sessions are great for anyone without any experience working with clay. In these classes we go over the basics of throwing in the first half of the lesson and the second half is dedicated to the traditonal forms of making with coiling and slab building.
Do I need to bring anything with me to my classes? What’s provided?
How long are the Drop-In sessions? Any rules and how do I book?
Drop-ins are 5h long, please let us know when you’d like to come in so we can let make sure there isn’t overcrowding. Drop-ins are required to provide their own glazes as the studio’s glazes are reserved for classes and members. Drop-ins can purchase clay from us and we go off a weigh and pay system (price is dependent on the clay you are using). Please be respectful of the space and people in our studio and remember to keep your area clean and tidy :)
I forgot to pick up my pots from my taster sessions, what do I do?
How do I get onto a Cernamic course?
Courses are regularly updated and are available on our website via our “Book Now” tab. We use PayPal to take our transactions to help protect both students booking and ourselves.
If I miss a class can I come in another day?
Unfortunately, you cannot make up classes that you miss on another day. This is because all of our courses tend to be full and it is too tricky to balance people moving around. If you miss one lesson on your course, you should be able to catch up the following week but we do not recommend this. We recommend that you only take a course if you can commit to doing all but one of the dates.
Can I book a class for someone else?
When can I collect my pots and how do I know when to collect them?
You will get an email confirmation stating that you pots are ready to be collected approx 2 weeks after your lesson. When you do decied when to collect them please give us notice on when you are coming to collect them. email@example.com or call/text 07985138854
Are you taking on any new members?
Unfortunately, we are not taking on any new members at this point and in the process of downscaling to provide more workspace.
Where is Cernamic's located? How do I get here?
We are based a 5 minute walk away from Stoke Newington Station. When you arrive at the black gates give us a call on 07985138854 and we will be able to let you in.
Does Cernamic do discounts?
We currently have a discount for Goldsmiths Students and Alumni that is 15% off all our courses. To enquire please contact us with proof or let us know who recommended you!
What is your exchange & cancellation policy?
Cancellations within 7 days of the start date will be charged 50% of the course fee.
