During our pottery classes, you'll learn the techniques and skills needed to create your own unique and functional pieces.

  • Do we use a pottery wheel?
    Yes, there is one pottery wheel for each person in the class. We will show you how to use it through demonstrations. However if you want to learn some hand building techniques too, this is totally fine. We use Venco pottery wheels.
  • What do I need to bring to the pottery workshop?
    When attending a pottery workshop, it's important to bring a few essential items to ensure that you are prepared and can fully participate in the class. Here are some items that you may want to bring: Some images of ideas of things you would like to make. This isn’t important if you are just beginning, but as you progress you might want to start making some more intricate pieces. So having visuals on your phone is always handy. A towel or apron: You may need to wipe your hands or tools during the class, so it's a good idea to bring a towel or apron with you. This will also help protect your clothing. A water bottle: Ceramics can be a physically demanding activity, so it's important to stay hydrated throughout the class. A hair tie: If you have long hair, it's important to tie it back to avoid getting it caught in tools or the pottery wheel.
  • What kinds of things do we make in the pottery workshop?
    If you are attending a one off pottery workshop, we will aim to make at least one piece. This is normally a small bowl or cup on the pottery wheel. If you are attending a longer course - you will aim to make several pieces. You might make a vase, a cup, a bowl, a plate.
  • What type of clay do we use in the workshops?
    We use several types of clay. All of our clay is mid fire. Once fired it is food safe.
  • What should I wear to the pottery workshops?
    When attending a pottery workshop, it's important to wear clothing that is comfortable, practical, and that you don't mind getting dirty. Here are some tips on what to wear: Wear closed-toe shoes with good traction, as the studio floor may be slippery from clay and water. Avoid sandals or open-toed shoes, as they don't provide enough protection. Consider bringing an apron or wearing old clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. Ceramics classes can be messy, however the white clay washes out easily. Tie back long hair to avoid it getting caught in tools or the pottery wheel.
  • Will you provide the clay and tools for the wheel throwing class?
    We will provide the clay, glazes and tools needed for the class. This is included in the class fees. However after your first 10 kilo bag of clay you will need to purchase subsequent bags of clay per term.
