Studio Pottery Experience

Our artists in residence, Harry, Jacob and Clarice, offer an exclusive 1.5hr  “Studio Pottery Experience” to those wanting to explore their creative potential with clay.  Take the potters wheel for a spin and learn the basics of making plates, bowls and cups. Playing with clay and its satisfying sensations is what the experience is all about and by the end we will have you elbow deep in mud.

About the Studio Pottery Experience

Each Studio Pottery Experience is a private session with you and your friends or family. Please note on the booking calendar that ‘1 Space Available’ means 1 group, not one person!

Our Studio has 3 wheels we share amongst your group, rotation style! It is suitable if you’re looking for a group activity to share the experience, connect and laugh at each other. Groups 3ppl or less have their own wheel each. This is suitable if you’re looking to get maximum repetitions! 

The structure of a lesson is often as follows. A demo by the teacher, followed by tutorials in which the teacher takes 3 people through the process of making their own pot. Once finished we rotate and repeat!  Groups 8ppl and more have access to a 4th wheel. 

We also offer to trim, bisque, glaze and fire your pieces in some of our favourite glazes and post them home to you. This batch process takes up to 6 weeks and is $25 per piece, not including postage. You can decide what to keep on the day!

Pottery is fun for all ages and ability (4yo to 100+yo). Most of our guests have never tried before, and often the kids are better than the parents! For kids under 8 we recommend parental guidance and participation. This is mostly because our teachers, while being fun loving hosts, are not amazing at the nuanced skill of child care! It warms our hearts to see a child on a parent’s lap making a bowl together 😍.

$150 per group of 1-3 people, $35 for each additional person. Up to 12 people. (Enquire via email for larger groups or customised workshops)

$180 for a family (2 adults and 3 or more kids under 18 of the same family)
