There’s nothing quite fulfilling than creating something with your own hands. Feel the wet clay take shape as your fingers gently direct its motion in this relaxing pottery workshop. A nice way to spend an evening, do something new and probably discover a fantastic hobby. This is a one-on-one experience with a professional potter who will demystify the craft with a hands-on experience. You don’t need to be creative or even have an artistic bone. All you need are fingers! The Instructor is an internationally exhibited artist, has been artist–in–residence in Australia and part of the Wood firing Symposium in Estonia.

Getting to know the clay

Your first clay art
With plenty of clay to play with, you can make a cool mug, cute figures, or something for the house. The hand building session is for 1 hour 30 mins, so you can make more than one thing.
Meet the wheel
Now that you and the clay are on first name basis, it is time for the second part of your experience – the pottery wheel. With your Instructor guiding your through the process, you’ll learn how to shape the wet clay into a small bowl, make designs and add some nice finishing touches.
Everything you make in the session is yours to take home.
If you are looking for a longer duration course, then the Introduction to Pottery experience is perfect for you, it will give you a chance to see the studio, meet the instructor and actually try your hand at pottery post which you can chat up with the instructor for longer duration course options.
The pottery session is a mix of both hand-pottery and wheel pottery. As you need to get accustomed with clay, hand pottery is what you will learn quickly and enjoy the most. Wheel pottery is tough to learn, but you do get a chance to make a couple of pots with the help of the pottery instructor :).
