Q: Hello, we are interested in understanding how the online lessons are viewed/purchased alongside the actual subscription box, can you help us? Is that an option?Asked by Heidi B., December 2021
Once a month by email invitation I invite all members to join our live Clay Club Class. These classes are held on the last Friday evening and Saturday morning of the month. Students can attend whichever day fits their schedule best. If they wish to join in on the fun, I will send them a Zoom link. Students can use their own supplies or order the Clay Club Kit containing all the supplies needed for the Clay Club Class lesson. If students wish to join the class they can order their supplies before their next box ships out on the 15th of the month. Then when their box arrives they will have what they need to join the class at the end of the...
Q: Isn't it dishonest to tell people a 3 month subscription is $27 a month and then at the end you tack on another $30 for shipping? Shouldn't that be told upfront?Asked by Sam I., July 2021
The Cratejoy Marketplace has a preset template for sellers to use. I can see how the shipping and checkout process can be confusing to customers.
Here is what my listing states:
Shipping cost - $10 per individual box.
First box ships within 1-3 days.
Monthly boxes ship out on the 15th of each month.

Q: How long is the shelf life of a clay box? I’m thinking of stocking them up to use when the grandkids come. Asked by Jean S., April 2021
Clay boxes contain a variety of clay bodies. Air dry clays usually remain moist up to 6 months in an airtight package. (Water can be added to soften dry clay if needed.) Oil based clays do not dry out. Kits that contain paint remain moist for approximately 3 months. *Shelf life recommended 3-6 months. Mrs. Post - Art Teacher
Q: If I ordered a box right now which clay box would I recieve?Asked by Jean S., April 2021
The 2021 April box is: Handsome Horses & Unique Unicorns. This is the current box that is shipping out now. If you have your eye on a past box, I do have a few available for shipment. Mrs. Post - Art Teacher
This box is absolutely adorable. My daughter received 3 projects in her first monthly box. There was a very description video along with it to explain the directions. My 7 year old did so well.
I am so pleased to hear that your daughter did well on her art project! Every artist likes to feel successful.

We love Mrs. Post and her little budding artist clay boxes! My mom gifted them about a year ago to my kindergartener. Siena is always so excited when her monthly boxes arrive. Sometimes we follow the awesome and clear paper directions, and sometimes we watch Mrs. Post's class recording for the project on YouTube (pausing while we make our way through the steps). These are so fun and creative.
As a bonus, Mrs. Post has offered several live art classes that we've joined and had so much fun working with a small group of kids on a project together. Mrs. Post's energy and teaching style is really lovely! She gives so much personal attention to the kids and you can tell really loves teaching art. Highly, highly recommend!
Thank you so much! I love having Siena as my art student. It amazes me how well she does on her clay sculptures during our Zoom classes. Usually, I need to lend a helping hand with my kindergarteners, but since that isn't possible she just pushes through on her own. Every artist needs some grit and she definitely has it. Art Teacher Mrs. Post
My granddaughter LOVES these activities!!!!
That's what I like to hear! I LOVE having Siena as my art student!!!! - Art Teacher - Mrs. Post
I purchased this subscription for my 6 year old niece’s birthday and she absolutely loved it. The whole family joined in and they were thrilled with Mrs Post’s art lessons. The clay was super fun and has sparked a new interest for my niece’s creativity. She wants to work with more clay in her future. Thank you for this amazing box!
So glad to hear that you loved my art lessons! I so enjoyed having your niece Annie as my art student. I look forward to teaching her more about clay in the future. - Art Teacher Mrs. Post
Bought for Grandaughter at Christmas. She loves it. The curring time is long for kids but patience isn’t the easiest thing. Otherwise all is great.
I'm so happy your granddaughter loves her Christmas gift! She will be getting a variety of different clay bodies to try out over the months. They all work a little different and have different drying times. (The "curation" mark in this review is referring to how I curated or put together the content in the box based on my expertise as an art educator. Which I hope you found satisfactory.)
We love the Clay Box! It came with everything we needed for my 5.5 and 8.5 year old boys to each make a creation. The instructions were excellent, and I love the way their projects are so unique, even following the same set of instructions.
We are looking forward to our next box and even ordered more clay so we could continue creating and using the tools in the meantime. Ms. Ruthie has a real talent for bringing out the artist in kids!
If you are looking for a way for your kids to do a ceramics/clay class (especially with so many summer rec centers and classes cancelled this summer :() this is a great option! I was even amazed at how little mess there was to clean up. Thank you so much!!
You're welcome! Bring on the summer time fun! - Your art teacher Mrs. Post
Kit was well crafted, all supplies needed to make two project pieces
Thank you! - Art Teacher Mrs. Post
This is wonderful! All the tools you need to create a beautiful little clay creation. We got the cactus box first and it is awesome! My 12 yo loves it and finds the process soothing and peaceful. A younger kid might need help but school age kids can do everything in it.
I agree, art making is a peaceful and calm activity. So good for one's mental health.
We had a BLAST with our first Clay Box! The box came with all the materials needed and clear directions that my 5year old could follow along! Being a working mom I loved having a creative activity arrive that we could open and enjoy together! I love that we had a sculpting session then a painting session the next day - Just Wonderful! THANK YOU!
So glad you enjoy your art lesson!
