Private Pottery Party
Book our studio for a private pottery workshop
Book the Clay Talk @ Montsalvat studio for your own private pottery party and have the place all to yourself.
Perfect for corporate team building events, hens/bucks parties, birthday parties or just a bunch of messy fun with your friends our studio can be booked for a private workshop with one of our tutors.
Jump on the wheel and let our expert tutor guide your creation of small bowls and cylinders or choose from our range of handbuilding projects and make a plate, set of spoons, ring holders, mugs or bowls.
The workshop is designed to cater to a maximum of 8 participants due to the number of potter's wheels at Clay Talk. We can cater to more people but it will come at an additional cost and possibly additional tutors depending on size. Groups larger than 8 will also have to rotate between hand building and wheel throwing activities.
Unfortunately we cannot allow outside catering or alcohol in the studio but catering can be arranged at an extra fee - Speak to us directly about various additional options.
Price includes all materials and the glazing and firing of up to 3 of your favourite pieces per person by our expert technician.
Ceramic works will be ready to collect 2-4 weeks after the class.
Prices and options vary so please contact us for specific requirements.

Clay Talk @ Montsalvat is a ceramics facility located in the grounds of Montsalvat – Australia’s oldest continuously active artists’ community. The studio is an addition to Montsalvat’s already rich history as a place where art is made, taught, shown and experienced.
At Clay Talk, we aim to be a creative environment that brings students and practitioners together through education and skills-based programs. Currently we offer classes where you can learn wheel throwing and hand building at all stages of development supplemented by specialist programs and workshops taught by established artists.
