New Artist Orientations
Every second Friday 10:30am
You will need to attend a New Artist Orientation before you can use the studio, attend a Tuesday Workshop or use the Clay Room.
The orientation will take about 15 minutes and will introduce new artists to the kaupapa of Vincents including values, behavioural guidelines and expectations.
This will also include a general tour of the studio and a time to complete registration forms and art plans.
We will be taking bookings for up to 10 people each week.
Orientations can be arranged outside of these times for people referred from other organisations, those attending with support workers and those wanting to attend on Women’s Day.
If you want to use the Clay Room you will also need to book in to attend a Clay Room Induction (see below).
Vincents Clay Room Inductions
You will need to book in to attend a Clay Room Induction before you use the Clay Room.
Due to the huge increase in popularity of the Vincents Clay Room, we are now offering weekly induction sessions for those wanting to use our clay room for the first time. You may book in for a session once you have already attended one of our weekly New Artist Orientations.
These sessions will involve a Health and Safety induction, an overview of how to create ceramic artworks in the room and a demonstration of basic hand-building techniques including pinch pots and joining methods.
There will be a limit of 8 people per session so you will need to book by calling us on 04 4991030 or talk to staff when you are at Vincents.
The sessions will run from:
Every second Wednesday 3:00pm to 4:30pm
This will be the only time that you can have an induction to the clay room. You will also need to do this if you want to attend one of our Tuesday Workshops involving clay. The clay room will be closed to other artists from 3:00pm on Wednesdays so we have enough space in the room.
Please be on time for the session or you may miss out. If you are attending the Wednesday session, please arrive by 2:45pm.
Please note that the clay room is closed for cleaning at the following times:
Wednesday: 3:00pm (New artist orientations from 3pm)
Our studio is on street level and is fully accessible. There are accessible toilets available in the Village courtyard.
