Private Events

Private events are a wonderful way to team build or celebrate with a group!

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

Included in the Event Package

  • Two hours of exclusive use of our beautiful throwing room.
  • Private instruction by one of our fantastic ceramics faculty.
  • Great tunes by local DJ — often our friends at Inner Ocean Records.
  • A selection of wine curated by Vine Arts.
  • Event host to assist 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

Participants start off with a beverage as they arrive and explore our facility in Inglewood. We always have tea and coffee available, and you can choose from an expertly curated selection of wine or beer from Vine Arts, or our friends at Sugar Water Bar can mix creative cocktails for the event. The group will gather for a quick introduction to Workshop, then jump right into demonstrations of clay wedging and wheel throwing before trying it out themselves. Your instructor and host work with each participant to guide them through the process. To complete the session, everyone will finish two pieces each with colour and surface decoration of their own design. All the while, we keep the tunes and drinks flowing.

After the event, our technicians glaze and fire the work for later pickup or delivery.
