Sarah Schembri is a Melbourne Ceramic Artist who is passionate about creating functional, tactile and visually appealing ceramics, particularly tableware. Being a lover of cooking and food in general, she is most interested in making pieces that are a pleasure to use in the home, pieces which are not only visually appealing but also functional & tactile.


“There is something quite special about using pieces that are handmade - the experience and food taste better. This is a feeling that I think about when I'm creating, it's part of the experience I want to share with others.” - Sarah

This is the second Open Wheel Class I have done with Sarah and it’s consistently been the highlight of my week (across all 16 weeks I’ve done the class)! Sarah is such a lovely and caring teacher - always helping students learn a new skill based on their interests. I could not recommend this class more!!

I highly recommend Sarah's classes. I'm about to finish my third term with Sarah and while there are many ceramics classes around Melbourne, I choose to keep coming back here because the atmosphere is so nice and relaxed. Sarah is really supportive of you being as experimental as you like and always happy to show you extra tips and techniques during the class on top of the core lessons (such as making handles, different trimming/carving techniques, transfers, various glazing colours etc). As someone who isn't naturally very creative, I find the atmosphere really supportive and fun and would say that Sarah goes above and beyond for her students.

Sarah's classes are incredible. Have never done pottery before and signed up for an open 8 week course. I've absolutely loved it and learnt so much. Sarah is so friendly and approachable and the classes are so much fun! Thanks Sarah!
