Hand Building or Clay Sculpting Workshop

Our hand building workshops and our clay sculpting workshops both run for 2 hours, and are priced affordably at $60 per class. We run workshops on afternoons and evenings during the week, as well as during the day on weekends. Spaces are limited to no more than 5 students, to ensure everyone gets individual tuition from the instructor. 

     Hand building workshops are a good starting point for those who have not worked with clay before. Skills learned in these workshops are also applicable throughout sculpting and wheel throwing classes. 

Workshop fees include clay and bisque firing to 1000C. All studio tools are available for use, or you can purchase your own equipment once you arrive.

     Not sure if it’s right for you? Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We are more than happy to help.

Wheel Throwing Workshop

 Our Wheel Throwing workshops are available on weekends, and selected afternoons and evenings during the week. Adult classes run for 2 hours, and kids classes run for 1.5 hours. Spaces are limited so booking is essential. 

      Workshop fees include clay and bisque firing to 1000C. Studio tools are available for use, or you can purchase your own tools once you arrive.

Glaze Workshop 

Glaze workshops are booked after you have completed a hand-building or wheel throwing workshop. Once you have a finished piece that you are happy with and would like to glaze, then you might wish to book a glaze workshop. 

    Glaze workshops run for one hour, and you can glaze two items per session (time permitting). The cost is $30 for a one hour session, including all glazes, and instruction on different glazing techniques. 

   There is a range of different glazes and under-glazes to choose from, including both studio made glazes, and some commercial glazes.

School Holiday Workshop

Our School Holiday workshops are a great way for kids to explore their creativity in a relaxing environment. Playing with mud is something every child seems drawn to, and with our pottery workshops, that ‘mud’ can become something unique that they can treasure forever.

    During the school holiday workshops, we learn about clay, where clay comes from and how it is different from normal ‘mud’, we learn how ‘mud’ becomes ‘pottery’.

   The cost is $60 for a 90 minute session, and includes clay, the use of all studio tools, and bisque firing of the finished work to 1000C.

   Maximum class size is four children, so booking is essential!
