Classes

Learn pottery at our classes

Teachers cater to students at all levels of interest, skill and experience. Our workshop is well equipped. Clay can be bought at the studio, glazes are shared by all students, and students’ work is kiln fired on the premises. Electric wheels, an extruder, a slab roller, moulds, and a ceramics library are all available to students and members.

Students are encouraged to work on their own projects to develop their skills in pottery.  Our experienced teachers provide hands on training and class sizes are small to allow for close interaction between teacher and students.  Classes include training in the following areas:

  • Hand building – including coil, slab, extruded and mould work
  • Wheel work (throwing pots on the potters wheel)
  • Finishing and decoration
  • Glazing
  • Firing (kilns are loaded by the teachers but students will be trained in the firing process)

Also keep an eye out for short workshops or special community classes.  These are usually advertised on our Facebook page.
