Open Wheel Rental Sessions


You already know how to make pottery and use a wheel? You can rent our turntables in our wonderful ceramics studio in Furi, for some DIY-DO IT YOURSELF time!

One session (2h) for 70CHF + 7.7Mwst: 
Available to people who have wheel-throwing skills and are completely self-sufficient on the wheel. There is no supervision or guidance from the ceramist - you only hire the time on the wheel. Each session includes the use of up to 1kg of stoneware clay, the use of tools, up to 2 hours and 20 minutes on the wheel and 10 minutes of active clean up.

We fire your viable pieces in about 5-10 days. You can come back within 30 days to glaze your pieces so we can do the final glaze firing and they will be ready for collection 2 weeks later.
For the second visit to glaze your pieces, we will charge you 30CHF per hour.

Residents of Zermatt receive a 10% discount on the offer.

Payment and additional costs:
The Session is paid in advance with additional Mwst. of 7.7%. After contacting our ceramist, you will receive an invoice which includes the regular price. After the workshop you will receive a second invoice if there are additional costs. Additional costs occur in the following cases:

- If you want to have more clay fired than is included in the workshop (1kg) per person. For each additional lump of clay of 500g we will charge you 22.5CHF plus Mwst. of 7.7%.
- If we have to send your finished ceramics by post. After your last visit to our ceramic studio in Furi, the pieces will be ready for personal collection after two weeks. If this is not possible, we will send the pieces by post with the additional insurance "FRAGILE". So, you will be charged the shipping costs of 15CHF-30CH. This depends on the weight of the created pieces. Whether shipping is possible depends on the condition of the ceramics, which is assessed by our ceramist. Furthermore, Zermatt Ceramics does not accept any liability for possible delivery of damaged goods by the post office, despite additional insurance "FRAGILE".

This course is normally offered from Monday to Friday. Weekend- and evening sessions are also available on request. Please do not hesitate to contact our ceramist directly at keramik@zermattkollektiv.ch or on 079 952 48 58with any questions or to make a booking.

We look forward to your questions and a creative time together in our beautiful studio in Furi.
