    Are there any extra costs?

    I have tried to make it as straight forward as possible with no extra surprise costs, Yay for that right? 12.5kg of clay should be plenty to get you through the 6 weeks and all glazes and firing costs will be included for that bag of clay. You will also be shown how to reclaim your clay to use it again. If you do want to purchase different types of clay or more clay there is an option to do so. Firing for the extra clay will be charged at $1 per 100g before bisque and included both the bisque and glaze firing and glaze for that piece.
