h2. Changes to Pottery Wheel class age restrictions

Pottery wheel classes are now only offered for children 10 years and over. This decision has been made as younger children are not able to evenly moderate the pressure on the pedal which causes excessive wear and tear being placed on the motors. Consequently we have had to undertake many unscheduled repairs on the wheels. We know this will disappoint many children, however our handbuilding classes are also lots of fun.

Winter School Holiday Ceramics collection

If your child attended one any of our sessions in the ceramics studio during the winter holidays everything has now been fired in our kilns. Sculptures These are all ready to collect. Pottery Wheel You would have been emailed to let you know it’s time to book in for a glazing session ($20 per person) to add your choice of coloured glaze. They will be then be fired again.
