Pottery Wheel School Holiday Fun | Years 2-4

THIS WORKSHOP IS COMING SOON TO THE WINTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS! Pre-register your interest by joining the waitlist.

A fun school holiday class for kids to learn to use the pottery wheel! Practice centering the clay on the wheel so you can build it up to a pot or other vessel. This class is a fun way to learn the basics of wheel throwing. Don’t worry too much about making everything perfectly symmetrical – just enjoy the process while learning the basics.

Due to the strength required to operate the wheel and mould the clay, our experience is that children should have already turned 7.

What to expect

Over the day, students will:

  • be introduced to the principles of making ceramics on a pottery wheel
  • learn the fundamental techniques of wheel throwing including centring and shaping
  • practise throwing simple cylinders

What should I wear?

Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you are relaxed about getting clay on.
Best to wear comfortable pants/trousers as you’ll sit close to the wheel as you throw.

What should I bring?

An old hand towel

Will my vessels be fired?

The clay can air dry naturally. If you wish to have your vessels fired, you can pay an additional fee of $5 per item on conclusion of the workshop. Works will then be ready to collect about two weeks after the holidays (we will advise you when you can collect them).

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.
