Vincents at Alert Level 1 from Wednesday
Kia ora koutou! We are pleased to announce that we will be back to our usual opening hours tomorrow (Wednesday 30th June) as the Government has moved the Wellington region back into Alert Level 1 from 12am tonight. This also means that Clay Inductions, New Artist Orientations, Life Drawing and exhibition openings will go ahead as planned. We hope to see you all back in the studio soon!
Vincents will be closed:
Monday 6th - Friday 10th September for Semester Break
New Artist Orientations
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 handbuilding 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 begin at this time:
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:
Our studio is on street level and is fully accessible. There are accessible toilets available in the Village courtyard.
