Art Studio Booking Site
Kiama Ceramic Art Studio operates pottery classes in the NSW south-coast sea-side village of Kiama, serving students from Wollongong to Nowra.
The site provides online bookings for classes, a payment gateway and student management and administration.
A feature of the site is an online training system to familiarise students with studio procedures and provides mandated occupational health and safety training. There is an online studio safety quiz that must be passed before attending classes.
The site uses WordPress and is integrated into both the Stripe and Square payment gateways. The Square gateway allows collection of fees in the studio via a iPhone card reader.
The system can also print out tickets that can be scanned by a bar-code reader when the student checks in to each lesson.
The website exceeded our expectations. We had thought about using one of the online website builders, but the problem was trying to get something that worked the way we wanted it to.
With these systems we were on our own, with no one to advise us. Your team’s understanding of business practices, online transactions and training was invaluable.
The template design suited us as we did not have a huge budget to do a fully custom solution – maybe next time when the studio is up and running.
