More about Aurore and the Au Chat d'Argile workshop

I am the founder of Au Chat d'Argile, a pottery studio based in Waterloo, in the house I rehabilitated a few years ago. My studio aims to be ecological and ethical, and I like to preserve the family atmosphere of the place. I warmly welcome clients and guide them in their discovery of pottery, either on the wheel or in a theme workshop of their choice. In addition to my pottery classes, I also offer my original and unique tableware and decorative creations, which are for sale in my store (by appointment) and on my online store.

I had the chance to share a few hours with Aurore during a shooting workshop: learning techniques, individual lessons, super relaxed and pleasant atmosphere! What a pleasure! Aurore offers customized formulas and shares her experience with pleasure. The emphasis is also put on "eco-responsible" approaches. Even better! Thank you Aurore for allowing us to live these moments of quality, out of time in which the imagination has no limits. Personally, I do not intend to stop there... 🙂

Internships and courses like we have rarely seen! Aurore offers private workshops/courses which, I think, really makes all the difference! (Better learning of techniques, a professional who listens and a very friendly atmosphere) Moreover, the whole workshop is based on the principle of "nothing is lost, everything is transformed" since all the unused and/or dried clay is recovered and reused! It is the same for the water which comes from a rainwater tank! Everything is thought out and personally I find it a real plus! So don't hesitate anymore!

Very pleasant discovery of clay and how it is worked on the wheel 😊😃😃 Aurore's pedagogy, patience and humor are the assets of Le Chat d'Argile to train the novice to discover by himself, guided by the mistress of the place! And all this brings a strong desire to return 🌺 To advise strongly 😀

Very nice moment of disconnection spent to elaborate a refreshment bar for the birds. The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed. The activity takes place in small groups. Thanks to Aurore for her advice. Can't wait to see the result!

I did a pottery workshop in this warm place. Very happy with the result! The first day required a lot of concentration and the second day was very revealing and fun! I had a great time and will go back regularly to refine my knowledge!
