Get ready to get your hands dirty and your creativity flowing in this pottery course! Over the course of four Saturdays, you'll explore a range of pottery techniques including slab building, coiling, pinch potting, and underglazing to develop your skills and craft your own pottery pieces to take home.

This class is designed to inspire and challenge at every skill level – whether you’re a beginner or experienced, it is suitable for everyone!

Techniques learned

  • Slab building: Learn the art of constructing ceramic pieces using slabs of clay. Explore texture, form and structure as you create unique pieces such as trays, plates and paint palettes.
  • Coiling: Discover the ancient technique of coiling, in which you'll coil ropes of clay to build vessels with beautiful organic shapes. From bowls to vases, you'll experiment with different coil sizes and patterns.
  • Pinch pot: Dive into the meditative process of pinch pottery, shaping clay with your fingers to create hand-printed pieces. Explore different pinch techniques to craft cups, plant pots and jugs.
  • Underglazes: Paint with different colours while exploring carving techniques, texture and contemporary designs.

At the end of session 4, your pieces will be ready to get bone-dry (1 week) then get bisque fired and dipped into a glossy clear glaze before getting into the last glaze firing (1 week). Pieces will be ready for collection in 3 weeks.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
