Pottery Wheel School Holiday Family Art Class

Something fun and creative this that parents and kids can do together. Your tutor will take students through the process of wedging a ball of clay, centering it on the wheel and throwing vessels. By the end of the workshop you’ll have learned new skills in wheel throwing pottery and made several pots.The fee includes bisque firing of 2 vessels in our kilns. If you wish to trim your pots before they are bisque fired, you will need to book in for a Trimming Session ($60pp). We will notify you when the pots have been bisque fired and you can either collect them, or book in for a Glazing Session ($20pp) to give your pots colour and a glossy, durable finish to make them functional. They will then be kiln fired again. Finished pots can be collected about 3 weeks after your first class.

About Family Art Classes

Our family art classes are designed to inspire families to explore their creativity, make art and have fun together. Children attend with Parents, aunties, uncles, grandparent or other carer.
Each person attending, whether a child or an adult, will need to be enrolled and pay the class fee. Children over 10 years can attend without a parent, but adults must attend with a child.


Due to the strength and height required to operate the wheel and mould the clay, our experience is that children should have already turned 10.

Students will not take home pots on the day. Students choose their 2 best pots to be fired in our kiln. Kiln fired pots will be ready for collection approximately 2 weeks after the holidays. This service is included in the class fee.

Students should bring and and wear:
Closed-toe shoes and clothes you are relaxed about getting clay on. Comfortable pants/trousers recommended as students sit close to the wheel as they throw.
An apron (due to OH&S we don’t supply aprons for ceramics during the holidays)
An old hand towel

The following is NOT included in the course fee
Bisque firing of more than 2 pots – if you want to bisque fire more than 2 pots there is a fee of $15 per extra pot payable on the day.
Colour glazing is not included. This an optional extra you can do AFTER bisque firing ($20 for 2 pots)
Learning to trim pots (this not offered during school holidays)
