Oneness / the Zen of Clay 

HiDe Ceramic Works Regular Class

 

We have a unique creative approach, which encompasses three key elements

Union

Pottery facilitates a union of body, mind, and clay; a union of the ego and the natural spirit; and a union of the mundane and the divine.

Working with clay helps to move you from constriction to expansion, from fear to love, and from separation to unity.

Harmony

Over time, pottery becomes something you live, not just something you “practice.”It brings union and harmony to every encounter. When your inner world begins to change, your outer world shifts to reflect the new perspective obtained through your encounter with earth and fire.

Meditation

You can become lost in meditation when working with clay, as meditation and pottery are two complementary practices with the same purpose. To experience the union of body, mind, and spirit, you must practice being your true Self. Be non-judgmental by closing your eyes and observing the movement of clay in your hands. If thoughts arise, don’t try to rid yourself of them but, instead, become aware of them and let them go. As you practice being calm, focused, and unattached, you gradually will become aware of the difference between your true Self and your fear-based ego.

•Small class: students are individually taught at their own pace.


•Relaxing, non-confrotational way of working with clay 


•Opportunities to add more aesthetic senses that will broaden your perspectives, enrich your life.


 •Convenient location/5min from Broadway skytrain station


 •More than 50kinds of original artistic high fire glazes and more than 20options of underglaze color.


 •Welcome Beginners

Dear Aspiring Artists,  

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 break out, we were already carefully planning on how we can further our hygiene standards in preparation for your return. With your continued interest and contributions to the studio, we thank you for the opportunity to re-open our doors so you can explore your artistic inspirations gained from these hard times. We are expecting to open our studio to you on July 1st 2020.

Given the current situation needing extra sanitary times as well as social distancing, Drop-In Classes are only offered during Saturdays and Sundays between 10:30AM-12:00PM (subject to change). This can easily be booked the same way on our website https://hideart.com/contents/dropin_e/. As for weekly classes they resume back to normal with the exception of Wednesday and Thursday Daytime classes which are temporarily suspended(subject to change). Please contact HiDe directly to make changes to your regular class. 

As we care about everybody's safety and well-being, we will continue to monitor the ever-changing situation of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have created new procedures adhering closely to the current BC Centre for Disease Control regulations. These includes (but not limited to):

1) Social Distancing - There will be 2 meter distancing between each student at the studio and teachers will try their best to assist with students' artistic needs at a comfortable distance. There will also be vinyl partitions separating each work station.

2) Smaller Class Size - In order to meet the social distancing aspect, there will be a maximum of 9 students at the studio at any given time - this also leaves space for enhanced teacher-student relationships.

3) Sanitation - There will be a sanitation station at the entrance of the studio mandatory for everyone to use before coming in. After class, students will continue to wash their respective tools and put them in a "Used and Washed" container where teachers will then sanitize with an alcoholic agent. After, they will be placed in a "Sanitized" container ready for next use. Unclean water used to wash and sanitize will be disposed of by teachers at the end of class. Discretionary sanitation will also be made around the studio when there are no classes. 

4) Ventilation - Ventilation fans are equipped within the studio, and the front door will be left open for to ensure sufficient air exchange 

While we work at keeping the studio germ-free, we mandate that everybody who enters the studio wears a face mask so we can work hand-in-hand to prevent the spread of germs and flatten the curve.

We appreciate your patience during these challenging times. If you have any feedback or questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ike at mail@hideart.com.

In Health,

Team

HiDe Ceramic Works
