Private Events are a great way to team build or celebrate with a group!

A Venue that values community

When you choose Workshop Studios to host your next event, you’re directly supporting Calgary-based artists and the environmental, social, and cultural organizations we actively partner with.

Event bookings

Workshop Studios curates wonderful events for teams and groups, complete with live music, exceptional drinks, and expert ceramic instruction. We host work retreats, birthdays, bachelorette parties, and more.

We’ll fine-tune the details to suit your needs, but a typical event package includes:

  • Two hours of exclusive use of our beautiful throwing room.
  • Private instruction by one of our fantastic ceramics faculty.
  • Great tunes by a local DJ — often our friends at Inner Ocean Records.
  • A selection of wine curated by Vine Arts.
  • An event host to assist with instruction and keep everyone’s drinks full.
  • Tea, coffee, aprons, clay, tools, and everything necessary for production.
  • Glazing, firing, and packing the work produced for later pickup.

How it Works

We’ll welcome your group with drinks as they arrive and explore Workshop. After a quick introduction to the studio, your instructor will jump into hands-on demonstrations of clay wedging and wheel throwing before inviting everyone to get situated at a wheel. Both your instructor and host will offer plenty of assistance, guiding your group through the process of constructing and decorating up to two pieces each, while keeping the tunes and drinks flowing.

After the event, our technicians glaze and fire your work for later pickup or delivery (typically a 2-3 week turnaround.)
