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.

Eddie is a very good instructor, I enjoyed the crash course very much.


01 May 2017 • Complete Pottery Basics

The crash course is fantastic. You have the opportunity to go at your own pace but Eddie gives you all the help and attention you need. He always makes sure you have something to show for your work. The studio is friendly and everyone is very welcoming. I would recommend Sajo to anyone from absolute beginner to experienced. Thanks Jo and the team!

From throwing to turning to glazing, the four week taster course has it all. Can't recommend Sajo enough. Lovely ladies who really know their stuff!
