Re-enrolling Students

Currently enrolled students should refer to the message board at Made in Clay for specific dates and procedures regarding enrolment.

As a general guide, you will have one week at the end of term before enrolments are made available on line to the general public, at which time, it is first come first served. So to ensure you get the class time you want get onto Cathy no later than the end of term.
