Learn how to use the pottery wheel

If you’ve wanted to learn how to make your own pottery, we have an awesome two week beginners pottery course in Sydney we’d love you to join!

We run each of our classes for 3 hrs to allow for maximum practice and experience.
This beginners Pottery Experience is made up of three classes over two weeks.

Week one
• Saturday - Introduction to throwing
• Sunday - Pottery trimming
Week two
• Saturday or Sunday (Please check date of ticket) - Ceramic painting

Our lifestyle, art and craft studio in Cammeray, Sydney provides a relaxed creative space for our pottery workshop. With only eight students per class, you’ll be given plenty of individual attention so you can learn the basics much quicker.

When your hands are covered in clay, you need to focus on the moment which brings a mindfulness approach. The small-size class format will introduce you to the basics of wheel-thrown pottery, decoration and glazing. If you have always wanted to give pottery a go, or reconnect with a past interest, then this short three-week workshop might be just what you are looking for.


Day 1 (3 hours)

  • Introduction to throwing: We will focus on important steps such as preparing the clay and learning how to centre the clay on the wheel.

Day 2 (3 hours)

  • Trimming: Pretty up the pieces by fixing uneven edges, working on the foot and base and more! After this, they'll choose their two favourite pieces for bisque firing ready to design and paint their work in the last session.

Day 3 (3 hours)

  • Design: Basic ceramic painting and design techniques. They'll unleash their creativity to decorate and paint their own ceramic bisque pieces ready for Glaze firing.

After the class, the ceramic pieces still need to be glaze fired in a kiln, this makes the ceramics functional and usable. Once the pieces are fired, you will be able to pick them up from our studio two weeks after.

We only have eight students per class, to ensure plenty of individual attention.
