At SaJo Ceramics you can...

Join a casual pottery class or social pottery & ceramics session; take a workshop to have a go at the pottery wheel, take one of our 6 week courses to learn the basics of throwing, or just use our  Melbourne studio facilities on a casual basis. Discover beautiful stoneware handmade tiles for a unique splashback or outdoor wall feature or make your own! Explore a huge catalogue of ceramic pieces to paint in both acrylic paints and fired finishes, made to order from vintage and modern bisque designs. Buy hand made tile blanks for your school or community project, ready for you to paint, carve or decorate, or just drop in and chat with fellow artists while enjoying a cuppa.
