Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19

When will you open?


As soon as it is safe to do so. We expect to open during phase 2 of the quarantine lifting, but it will depend on whether all safeguards are in place, & then whether members feel comfortable staffing the gallery. We are keeping up with the latest notifications & suggestions, & gathering supplies we will need.




Can I buy your pottery online?


No, we are not set up to have an online store & ship items. You can buy gift certificates to use when we do open, and you can make tax-deductible contributions. Gift certificates can be used for pottery, or for our Take a Turn at the Wheel Class (you must register for a specific date when you're ready).




What are your hours?


During COVID-19, we are temporarily closed. We will post our hours when we're ready to open again.




I registered for a class, but it's been cancelled due to COVID-19.


We have attempted to contact all registrants. Please send us a message if you haven't been contacted. You can save your registration, or ask for a refund. We're holding seats for current registrants in our next scheduled class, whenever that may be.





Classes

Do you give pottery classes?


Our class is on hold during COVID-19. Yes. We have a single 3-hour class called Take a Turn at the Wheel. It is taught on the 2nd Saturday of each month, at the Frederick Clay Studio. If you're looking for a longer-term class in your area, visit our Resources page.

What is your refund policy?


We do not offer refunds or exchanges on pottery purchases. If a class is canceled, the fee may be refunded or applied to a class on a different date.





Repairs

I have a favorite piece of pottery. Can you repair it? Or duplicate it?


We are unable to make repairs. However, Lakeside Pottery offers a repair service and online lessons for DIY repairs. http://www.lakesidepottery.com/ We are unable to duplicate items. The combination of clay, glazes, and firing techniques are unique to your piece. To duplicate a piece, all of these things would need to be known and duplicated exactly. Some of our members take commissions. If you would like to request an item with a specific design or function, please contact us.
