Our skilful ceramic teachers will definitely make this a fun and relaxing event for you!  You will be shown how to use the pottery wheel, and receive a thorough lesson on the throwing process with expert tuition on making a vessel or two for you to glaze... all in one fun-filled class!

Students can choose two pieces to be glazed and fired by the teacher. Additional pieces cost $10 each per student.

27 April 2021Private Ceramic throw class
EJ was an absolute legend of a teacher and host of MakerSpace. I did a private class with 7 friends to celebrate a mates baby shower. I cant think of a more enjoyable and creative activity or a better teacher for the occasion. I am not a creative person and I have never worked with clay or wheels before but EJ made us all feel so welcome in the space and could show us tips and tricks in the space of 5 -15 minutes. The class was two hours long so EJ had us stuck in and working on shapes and pots within the first twenty minutes. We all had the opportunity to make several pieces, some better then others! But the energy in the space, the afternoon light, the disco ball and tunes was perfect! Thank you so much EJ for such a cool and entertaining ceramics class! EJ goes above and beyond for her guests, she was friendly, instructive, funny and kind. BOOK A CLASS WITH EJ!
