Wat je gaat doen

In a 2 hour session, I'll teach you the principles of throwing clay into a vessel on the potter's wheel. This will include preparing the clay and centering it into a ball while it spins. Then we'll open the spinning ball of clay accurately and draw the walls up to a cylinder, shaping it into a jug, cup, or bowl. From there I'll cure the clay, fire it if you wish. After 4 weeks, your project will be ready in clear glaze for an ivory white finish. This package includes the complete finishing of your work. For locals who want to do all three classes, book them at www.thepotteryshed.com.au ($59 each). Shipping your pottery in Australia or internationally is available at an extra cost.

It was an amazing experience. We had the opportunity to do three different bowls/cup. Our tutor was really sweet and funny. The atmosphere was relaxing and the shop was really cool. We recommend this experience for sure!

I enjoyed the class very much - class is structured, and teachers were friendly. Class size was about 10-15, but I received sufficient attention. Studio is also located in a nice neighborhood, so you can take a walk around before/after class.

Joe was amazing!!! So helpful, dynamic and fun. I was getting stressed because I wanted to make it perfect but he taught me to be relaxed and enjoy the experience so that was how I made my master piece. I highly recommend this to everyone as I was never done something like that. No previous knowledge required to enjoy your time there.

The experience was fantastic. From the beginning, it was very welcoming. I felt at home at all times and Joe was a wonderful host. We learned heaps and we're definitely coming back for more. I definitely recommend this. The first impression was having a separate area only for the experience with 3 seats for the three of us. The decoration was all very appropriate and everything was nice and tidy. Definitely a positive vibe in the air. We were very enthusiastic to get our hands on the clay straight away (I like play dough), but it all started with an introduction to what we were going to do and achieve. Then, the general process to make the pottery and details on the techniques. Once we went through the basics we got our hands dirty -literally- and started working on the clay with the technique we learned. I won't lie, it looks a lot easier than it actually is, but once you get the grasp of it, it's all amazing. something I remember well is losing lots of clay because instead of leaving the technique do the job, I was applying brute force. At some point other staff came to help and they were as great and friendly as Joe. They helped getting our stuff together while Joe had to leave for some time. We took our time and in the end, we are very proud of the objects we created. for some additional money we can keep what we did and we are definitely coming back for glazing (painting) our artwork. Hey, we even got some pizza there, very nice touch :) Thanks to the whole team! Looking forward to see you again. Alex
