Thursday, June 6th, 7-9pm

Sooki Studio, 2971 Allesandro Street, Frogtown, LA 90039

As we experience collective grief, shock, horror and despair by the ongoing genocide of Palestinians, we want to provide a space for people to come together to process their emotions through clay, channel it into creation and to connect with one another.  Participants are welcome to bring literature, poetry, music, food and drinks to share with one another.

All are welcome for this community clay night, this will be a low stakes creative environment grounded in exploration. Participants will work with terracotta clay and are welcome to make anything they'd like such as sculptural, abstract and functional forms.

No experience is necessary and all ages welcome. This workshop will be suited to those who are curious in working with clay for the first time, those with various levels of experience who would like to create in a communal space and those who simply need to decompress and work with their hands.

All materials are included and participants can build as many pieces as they'd like within the 2-hour period. We will be working with unglazed terracotta clay that can be used for anything except holding liquids. All pieces will be ready for pick up within 3 weeks.

100% of profits from this community clay night will be donated directly to mutual aid supporting displaced Palestinians.

Sliding Scale Pricing

Sliding scale pricing is a tool for social equity. We use sliding scale pricing to make ceramics education accessible and affordable. 

There are three tiers for pricing, when signing up for a workshop, please pay on the scale what feels right to you and your current finances. This is a trust based system, only you will know what feels comfortable and possible.

The high end of the scale is the true cost. If you are someone who can afford to pay this, please do, as this offsets the price for others, allowing us to create more affordable offerings.

There are a set amount of spaces available per tier to ensure that the scale is balanced and workshop costs are covered. If a tier is sold out it means that all those spots have been spoken for. An interest free payment plan is available for all workshops, breaking the workshop cost down to smaller payments over a longer period of time.

We do our best to ensure workshops are accessible and affordable. We are continuously improving our pricing system, please reach out if you have any questions or ideas you'd like to share.  

  

Cancellation Policy

Workshops are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend the workshop you may transfer your spot to another person, please confirm with the studio when doing so.
