Two siblings, Sally and Michael, restored a mid century warehouse in Abbotsford to create a ceramics studio, wood workshop and boutique cinema and invited anyone and everyone to share the space! Now the whole family helps out, inviting people to share in creating a creative and inclusive experience for anyone who needs 20 seconds of inspiration to fuel their day.

“We had this idea to create a place where we could do the things we like doing, and then we thought … hey, maybe other people would like some space to do something they like too…”

Great setting with a great teacher and a fun time overall! Only thing we needed was some more time as it’s addictive.

Pottery class review by Louis Queale - Melbourne

Deepesh Kapadia Apr 2024


The instructor was amazing, she was patient and encouraging.
Approx 30mins is taken up during instructions leaving you less time for your initial pottery making. This session only allows for one pottery to be fired any extras will cost $10 a piece. For the amount paid for this session, weird that was asked to clean up everything.
Overall, easily an enjoyable activity, Hope they increase the time especially for the new learners.

Surindah Thiomas Apr 2024

Loved it so much! Already thinking of signing up for another class and excited to see how my pieces turn out.

Brendy Ford Apr 2024


For the last 6 weeks I've thoroughly enjoyed the 6 week pottery course at 2 Mayfield. The instructor (Sophia), lesson plans, studio, fellow students and atmosphere were fantastic. Definitely will be continuing casual classes in pottery as this was absolutely fabulous 10/10!

Thank you

Hilda Sirec Apr 2024


A truly wonderful evening that allowed us to focus on a new skill whilst detaching from the outside world - an excellent mindfulness experience, and we got to create something that will be useful.

Amber was great at explaining the process in simple steps. I had a lot of fun!

Belinda Clark Apr 2024


Awesome fun. It's great to learn something new in such a supportive and helpful environment. The teacher Juliette was amazing and everyone left with a smile and a sense of achievement. The venue was just right and I would highly recommend this class for those wanting to try something that forces you to be in the present.

Paul Broersen Apr 2024


Great class, had a lot of fun and the time flew by. Amber was a great teacher.

Yeisy Delgado Apr 2024


We booked this class for a girls catch up and had a lovely time. The teacher was really helpful and friendly. Always checking on us for questions or support. We cant wait to see our final pieces, they had lots to choose from!

Pottery class review by Yeisy Delgado - Melbourne

Jessica Chia Apr 2024


Perfect intro class to wheel throwing. There was enough time to be shown the fundamental techniques and build two vessels. The instructor, Amber, was excellent. It's a great way to spend two hours. Fantastic value for money too.

Lola Noiraud Apr 2024


We came with my boyfriend and it was both our first time trying wheel throwing. The instructions were clear and we had all the materials needed. Definitely good value for money and we are even keen to check the clay painting class

Vivien Tran Apr 2024


We had so much fun and our instructor was so lovely and patient! Definitely recommend for beginners

Sanduni Malimbada Apr 2024


Highly recommend the ceramic painting class for any occasion! Went with my boyfriend and we both really enjoyed how easy and fun the class was! The lady helping us was very welcoming and friendly- 10/10 experience!

The class was very fun and super helpful, the class not only helped me learn how to throw but to trust the process and appreciate my own piece. After leaving the class, it left me wanting to do more. I was so inspired by seeing other peoples ceramic pieces as it gave me unique ideas to preserve and learn more. I’ll definitely be coming back soon. :)

Clare Tuckwell Apr 2024

A fabulous and relaxing activity! This was a bday pressie for my partner and the first time either of us had done wheel throwing. The instructor, Amber, took us through a beginner friendly class, assisting us as need and giving us creative freedom as needed too. Would recommend if ur wanting to try this for the first time! xx

Maria Caputo Mar 2024


My husband, son and I, thoroughly enjoyed our wheel throwing workshop Sunday the 10/3. Considering it was a 39deg day, the room was set up with fans, iced water to keep us cool. Very thoughtful!
Examples/instructions given by teachers were clear and easy to follow, loved everything about this workshop. The best birthday present I ever received. Thank you!

Teacher's response

Wow Maria! So lovely to read your review. It was a cooker that day so we’re glad it didn’t ruin the experience for you! Come back again! We’d love to see you at Mayfield Street anytime!

So wonderful that your enjoyed Juliet’s teaching Krysten. She’s top notch and a real asset for us. Come back and be part of the community again soon! We’d love to see you.

Jessie Jackson Mar 2024


We enjoyed an amazing clay throwing experience today, ran by Juliette. She was so knowledgeable and patient with us as beginners and went above and beyond to ensure that it was a class focused on process rather than the final product. I can’t recommend this enough and I can’t wait to go again

Pottery class review by Jessie Jackson - Melbourne

Teacher's response

Oh wow! Well we hope you do come back again! Thanks so much for you kind words Jessie. See you soon!

Jasmine Mar 2024


I was taken to this class as a birthday present. The session itself was super fun and enjoyable, however my piece came out damaged after it was taken away to be glazed.

Teacher's response

Thanks for your feedback about your piece of work Jasmine. So sorry that it came back with some chips in the base. We always try to compensate customers whose work comes back that way. Would you like to come back and have another session painting with us or can we send you a voucher to our new shop on Victoria St? We’d love to do something to make up for your disappointment. Thanks for reaching out and letting us know. Would love to see you again on Mayfield Street!

Rose Goodwin Mar 2024


A great, fun class! The process was well explained and the instructor was always around to help out if needed :)

Tahlia Gascoigne Mar 2024


loved this class! i did it with my 2 best friends had a great time, i got to make 2 pieces and the 3rd didn’t go well but it was a fun class bring a drink if u want but ur hands get very dirty maybe go out before for dinner and make a night out of it

Teacher's response

Top suggestion Tahlia! There are some terrific restaurants close by. Many thanks for the kind words. We’d love to see you again soon!

Had such a fun afternoon painting our little vases. My friend and I booked this class for something different to do and were not disappointed. BYO snacks and drinks is a great idea and we were both happy with our final pieces. My only feedback would be that we weren't given much guidance from the teacher - just a quick overview on what to do then left on our own but as it's only painting, everything was probably covered off in that overview anyway.

Teacher's response

Hey Sarah, thanks for the feedback! We find it hard to read everyone’s needs sometimes as some people feel a bit of stage fright when we hang close by! But good to know what you thought. Will definitely pay it some attention. Hope your work turned out well in the end!

Peter Pfukwa Mar 2024


Class was incredible! We showed up a bit late and were still embraced by the teacher and the group :)

Nurul Hidayah Teo Mar 2024


Very clear instructions. Fun class! Julia is very sweet. A must try class! Very worth it.

Pottery class review by Jimena - Melbourne

Melanie Phillips Feb 2024


Super friendly teacher who provided easy and clear directions, 2 hrs was the perfect amount of time to not feel rushed or pressured and the time updates from the team were helpful.

Loved choosing our own pieces and getting to paint whatever we liked! Will definitely be back!

Holly West Feb 2024


This was a great class, so relaxing and fun to do! Our teacher was so lovely, I can't remember her name (sorry!) But the class was amazing and I would definitely love to do it again

Sarah Marlow Feb 2024


This was a bday gift for my best friend & it was so much fun! The teacher was exceptional, very knowledgeable & she had a lovely, helpful demeanour. The class was great fun, great value for money & I would highly recommend both class & teacher.

Anastazia Cimino Feb 2024


My friend and I wanted a wholesome girls night and found the clay and paint was the perfect way! Our teacher was super friendly and helpful and very approachable. We had a great time and can’t wait to book another class!

Gabrielle Fanning Feb 2024


Such a well run class in a beautiful space! Lots of pots to choose from and plenty of guidance for painting them. The studio was so welcoming and we brought our own drinks and snacks, you can really feel at home.
Thanks so much!

Thea Mucas Feb 2024


I had a wonderful time in the Wheel Throwing class! Our instructor gave very clear instructions and was easy to follow. We had assistance throughout the session and overall I found it to be a welcoming space to learn. It was a great experience!

Wheel Throwing Class: Clay Soirée review by Thea Mucas - Melbourne

Kirstyn Campbell Feb 2024


Amber's hand building class: I've
done alot of pottery classes but amber taught me so much about art, about how to approach your work, and how all ideas have value.

Her teaching felt like I was getting all the knowledge from her extensive experience distilled and communicated in an understandable way.

It is pricey but so worth it if you are thinking about get the skills you need to go further with your work with clay.

Thanks so much amber! Can't wait to see you take over the art world!

Melanie Chan Feb 2024


Loved relaxed and supportive class, Ellie was fabulous and it was a really relaxing way to learn.

Took my friend for her birthday and had so much fun. The teacher (Sophie) was super funny & helpful and made the class a lot easier just with her energy.

Evena Wong Ai Rahn Feb 2024


Loved the beautiful, airy studio. Amber was amazing, helpful, and responsive. It was a bit fast paced initially but she comes around and helps if we miss a step or if things get messy! Great value for money and love that we get to go home with a gorgeous glazed piece

Solida Sieng Feb 2024


Went for my partner's birthday and it was great! The workers were so helpful and friendly. Your newest member of staff (forgot her name) who has started 2 weeks ago was amazing and very nice!

This teacher had a great technique of teaching. She moved her fingers to explain properly and that really helped. Her hand gestures have made an imprint that will last longer.

Pottery class review by Julie Chetcuti - Melbourne

Caitlin Dowling Feb 2024


Purchased as a birthday gift. A great activity with friends to flex your creativity, with a broad selection of ceramics to choose from and a relaxing environment. Team are super helpful and patient! I can’t wait to see our finished pieces

Fatima Yehia Feb 2024


This class was really fun and worth it! I brought my friend for her birthday and she loved it heaps. Teachers were kind and the space was set up well. So happy with our creations and can't wait to pick them up!

Lisa Butterworth Feb 2024


Fantastic learning the art of clay throwing by Amber. Went with mum for a Xmas present and we laughed a lot. Can’t wait to see what our pieces come out like and keen to try it again in future. Definitely good for beginners

Molly Waldron Feb 2024


The class is accessible to all skill levels, and the time frame was perfect to create a piece we were both happy with

Narelle Plevey Feb 2024

Really friendly and chill atmosphere, only feedback is that I wish there were some templates/generic ideas/examples of what to paint for people who maybe aren't so creative but overall we had a great session - can't wait to pick up the final product!

Reshma Madhi Feb 2024


The teacher provided a welcoming, inclusive space and made everyone feel at home - they explained the process well and provided lots of support and encouragement, so great for beginners.

There were options to choose a colour for the finished pieces and you were able to create a few pieces too.

Great weekend activity option whether you're solo, with friends or as part of a couple. Lots of fun and enjoyable - the two hours went by quickly.

Jeffrey Zhao Feb 2024


Great space, selection of materials and ceramic selection to paint on! Teacher was readily available for any questions

Trang Huynh Feb 2024


Fun experience! Staff were helpful and nice! Would come back for pottery since we did ceramic painting

Did this class for a wedding anniversary. Instructor was amazing and helpful, we were well taken care of and had a great time. Would highly recommend.

Emily Morrow Feb 2024


Had an amazing time. Purchased the class for my partners birthday and we had a really great time. Instructor was wonderful, she explained everything really well and was happy to assist when we needed help.

Kiya Doig Feb 2024


I went with my partner. The teacher had a great energy and was clearly very skilled. It was a fun time. Despite the hot weather it was fairly comfortable. I bought the class with gift vouchers I got in black friday sale at 30% off which made it extra good value. My only suggestion is that a sheet with written steps or prompts to jog the memory would be amazing.

Jessica Jones Feb 2024


Such a fun class. Amber was very helpful, patient and encouraging, so I never felt bad about being bad!

Colm Flynn Feb 2024


We had so much fun, Sophie was a great teacher too. We’ll definitely be back!

James Odell Feb 2024


Great teaching, relaxed atmosphere, and the whole group had fun learning something new - thank you! :-)

Jazz Capozzi Feb 2024


Amazing! Wheel Throwing clay is such a technical skill. I've left feeling so happy, supported and proud of the work I've made. Any little hiccups were guided, helped and I'm super excited to book in for another class. Thank you!

Andrea Panagiotidis Jan 2024


We had a great teacher. Was so much fun and got to make a few pieces!

Peter Horsfall Jan 2024


Teacher and the session were wonderful. The atmosphere was also great, with chill music and good vibes. My partner and I would highly recommend anyone wanting to try clay throwing for the first time to go here.

Alexia Le Millour Jan 2024


An amazing class with a wonderful instructor! We enjoyed it so much. I would highly recommend!

Rachel Cheong Jan 2024


I don’t think this can be marketed as a class because there was actually no teaching bar the 5-10 minutes the organiser took to run through housekeeping including not to waste their paint. The rest of the 2 hours were left to the participants to paint their own pieces. Colour palette was also rather limited with bottles not labelled correctly. If this continues to be marketed as a class and charge fees then there should be more teaching and step by step guidance as the participants go along. Example to make sure everyone is on track in preparing the ceramic by water coating, tips on base colouring including what shades to use and avoid; design tips, colouring tips especially if shading is intended or dark vibrant colours are intended and multiple coats may be required etc. The person running the course was also rather abrupt such as not asking politely for the participants to move when arranging seats and not being organised and clear enough at the start to arrange people into seats if there were specific requirements. There’s also no facility or space to leave jackets and bags while painting and no clear instruction to not bring any of these given there is no space to store them.

Teacher's response

Hi Rachel
I just wanted to write and thank you for your review. We’ve had a very clunky start to the year but your feedback has helped us change things up before the year really gets going. We’ve changed our teachers, put in place a better class plan, and sorted out the studio to make it work better for clients all thanks to you. As a show of our thanks we’d love to send you a $50 voucher to use here in the sStudio or in our new Shop on Victoria St which will open on February 23rd. If you’re OK with that let us know and we will email it thru to you?
Thanks again and best of luck for 2024.
Sally and Emma at Mayfield Street

I loved this class! Ellie was a great teacher. She explained everything clearly and was very fun and efficient at the same time. I will definitely be recommending this to others.

Christine Keeley Jan 2024


Class was so much fun! Better than I expected. We really got into it and was able to create 3 master pieces.
I’m surprised that we were able to accomplish so much in such a short time.
The teacher was a super star

My sibling and I attended this class together and had a lovely time. Our teacher, Emma, did a fantastic job of showing us the ropes before we began and was encouraging and helpful throughout the session. All materials provided, and loved that we could all choose from a range of different vessels etc. to paint. It was a relaxing and mindful experience, though I did rush at the end (I was painting the entirety of a bowl and wanted to ensure there were enough coats of paint on every section). And they happened to be playing what felt like my entire iTunes library during my high school years (indie music of the 2000-2010 era) - a pleasant throwback!

Lorna Hendry Jan 2024


This is a very hands-off session in terms of instruction. I'm not sure what instruction you might need, but you essentially choose an unpainted ceramic piece, get shown the paints and then off you go for 2 hours. The venue is good but be prepared to sit on a high stool, which may not be for everyone. I think it is best suited to a social outing, rather than a 'learning and making one' - bring a friend or two and a bottle to share.

Lorna Hendry Jan 2024


I enjoyed this workshop but I suspect my expectations were a bit high! I did find the throwing quite a bit harder than I expected and got a bit frustrated when I wasn't really able to make anything that felt "good enough". That says a lot more about me than the class though! Amber was a great teacher and very helpful, and all the tools and materials were great. The venue is a lovely space - very welcoming and comfortable. I do recommend it - probably best to approach is a bit of fun, come with a friend or two and bring a drink to share.

Anjalie Gunasekera Jan 2024


Super chill and relaxing experience, my sister and I loved it. There were so many colours to choose from and the teacher explained everything clearly, was always near by to help. Would definitely recommend Perfect activity for a cute date or catch up!

Ann-Maree Hannon Jan 2024


Our family had a really enjoyable morning painting pottery. We are all looking forward to seeing if our vision actually matches the reality when we pick up the finished pieces.

Delwyn Maxwell Jan 2024


Really great experience. We needed to change our booking at the last minute and the team were extremely helpful. The actual day was brilliant: relaxed and fun - the two hours flew by and could easily have spent another 2 hours. Great for a relaxing weekend idea, ideal for de-stressing and grounding.

Libby Thomson-Brown Jan 2024


Great fun! The teacher was really nice and happy to answer any questions. Good for beginners and experts because you can set your own challenge/design. Workshop could maybe be half an hour longer because some of us were rushing to finish. Can’t wait to see what it looks like glazed & finished!

Ceramic Painting Workshop: Clay Soirée review by Libby Thomson-Brown - Melbourne

Rhiana Barrington Jan 2024


The venue was lovely, an open space with good airflow and a nice atmosphere. The teacher was great, very helpful and you could ask any questions you wanted. The experience was really nice. It was lovely to be able to spend two hours painting. The choice of ceramic was wide too. You could choose a mug, a bowl, a vase, a plate, and all manner of other cool creations. My mum, sister and I really enjoyed this class and are looking forward to seeing how our pieces turn out.

We had such a fabulous experience! Everything was well thought out, so organised and easy for us as beginners to jump straight in and have fun. The teachers were gorgeous and so helpful. Highly recommended! We will be coming back for sure.

Christina Jan 2024


It was relaxing and low-key, just pick an item and paint it! All materials provided.

Leah Kilemade Jan 2024


Really chill way to spend an afternoon. Sophie was energetic and fun and made the class so enjoyable. Was my first time to try throwing but we were guided and helped the whole way through. Surprisingly, I succeeded in making a cute lil bowl

Went to this class as it was recommended by a friend and I have never done pottery before. We were walked through everything and could grab extra assistance if needed. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and the teacher was wonderful. Considering all the behind the scenes work to prepare and then fire/glaze/finish, the class price is also very good.

Peter Spiranac Jan 2024


Great experience where you are free to create whatever you want. Looking forward to seeing the finished and glazed product!

Diane Helliger Jan 2024


Amber was an awesome instructor. Very clear with instructions and kept everyone organised. Lots of fun and once we grasped the idea of what we were doing, we were able to do our thing. Everything you need is provided. We did it as a family group which was great but could see it as a great team building activity or fun activity for friends. Would definitely recommend to anyone who hasn’t had a go at wheel throwing. Thanks Amber Looking forward to picking up our pots!

My besties went together as the class was bought for one of our birthday presents. We all had a great time getting creative and surprising ourselves with our creations. We all ended up buying the extra pieces we made too!
Time for me to go pick up the fired and glazed finished pieces, can't wait to use them.
Teacher was friendly and funny, I highly recommend as a relaxing activity with friends or family.

We got to select an item to paint and Emma explained the process and different paint techniques to get different effects.

The environment was very inviting and relaxing. We had Emma as the facilitator who was very informative and helpful answering questions about techniques and colour palettes. We did this activity as a team building exercise and will look to definitely come back with a friend or my partner.

Toby Zayontz Nov 2023


Teacher, Amber, was incredible. The whole vibe was very chill and we learnt a lot. Had a lot of fun - great experience!

Vi Tran Nov 2023


Good experience, would have been better if the teacher had broken down the instructions and let us follow along step by step. As by the time they had demonstrated the whole process and it was our turn, a lot of people had already forgotten the first few steps.

My Tuong Ho Nov 2023


It was a cute and relaxing experience with vibey tunes. Excited to collect our pieces!

Louise Ellard Nov 2023


a lovely afternoon spent painting in a fabulous location. Relaxed with just the right amount of information provided. We were welcomed and the space for food/drinks was perfect for our needs. Thankyou

As soon as we arrived Emma was making us feel welcomed and comfortable. She showed us to our working area and explained everything beautifully. She allowed us creative space to enjoy the experience all the while being close enough to assist when or if needed. Emma is a real people person and an amazing teacher! My friend and I will definitely be back to create art in more pieces. Stay tuned Lol

Fiona Weegink Nov 2023


As soon as we arrived Emma was making us feel welcomed and comfortable. She showed us to our working area and explained everything beautifully.

Samantha Waller Nov 2023


Sophie was awesome. She explained everything beautifully and was kind.
I would easily return for more fun. The 2 hours felt like 10 minutes.
Well worth the money.

We had such a lovely afternoon. There were 11 of us, all beginners. Hats off to the incredibly patient teachers that were so kind to us all. I cannot wait to collect our, far from perfect, creations. Many of us said that we barely caught up with one and another because we were so focused and dedicated to the wheel and each step! A lovely hands-on activity we will all look fondly back on! Thanks so much!

Rebecca Cattran Nov 2023


A relaxed and supportive introduction to the wheel throwing. Good sized class and nice location.

The workspace is so vibing with all the art and ceramics surrounding you, definitely provides inspiration together with the colourful photos and pics that have been placed to help provoke inspiration/what you’re drawn to. We will definitely do this again and with more of our crew. Excited to come and collect our “masterpieces” ☺️

Hamad & Ohood Nov 2023


I recently had the pleasure of taking a wheel throwing class, and I can't say enough about the fantastic experience I had. From the moment I walked in, the staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming, making me feel right at home.

The instructor was not only knowledgeable but also patient and encouraging, which was a huge relief as a beginner. They guided us through the intricate process of wheel throwing with ease, and their passion for the art was truly inspiring.

The class itself was so much fun, and I learned more than I ever expected. The hands-on experience was both relaxing and invigorating. I left the class with a newfound appreciation for pottery and a beautiful piece I had created myself.

I can't recommend this wheel throwing class enough. If you're looking for a creative and enjoyable experience with a warm and friendly atmosphere, this is the place to be. I'll definitely be back for more classes in the future!

Emily Vuong Nov 2023


Loved the class, it was perfectly structured m as an intro to wheel throwing! 2 hours flew by. I highly recommend if you just want to give it a go and do something a little different as a social activity with friends. I made a coffee cup and am so excited to pick it up in 4 weeks time.

Helena Kalfas Nov 2023


Amazing We had the best time, our teacher was great, she was really encouraging and super helpful, but also let us do our own thing and we didn’t feel pressure/ rushed at all. Was such a great date night, the most peaceful, wholesome space

The venue is so cute, since it’s on the smaller side you have smaller groups which is great as you get more help if you need it! Great teacher, explained everything well and was very helpful!

Definitely will be back

Anonymised ClassBento student Oct 2023


Rather than giving us endless clay to make mistakes, I think I would have preferred actual technique correction so that we left knowing we had created something we liked. We kept making the same mistakes over and over again with little direction on how to improve. It was still fun and would like to try it again

Teacher's response

Thanks so much for your honest feedback and so sorry that you left feeling so frustrated.! Wheel throwing is a really technical task. Based on your comments our team have discussed how we can help our students feel a better sense of achievement so we are really grateful you took the time to let us know. I hope we see you at Mayfield Street again.

I really enjoyed this class! There was heaps of pottery items including vases, mugs, bowls and plates to pick from, as well as inspiration pieces and photos to help inspire your design. The teachers were also very helpful and made sure we had all the supplies we needed and grabbed extra paint pots or brushes for us. They also provide a pad and pencil where you can draw your design before you start painting. Definitely excited to see it once it is glazed and ready for pick up!

Definitely recommend booking your pottery painting class as a fun activity!

the folk that run the studio are so knowledgeable and so willing to help, regardless of your ideas and your level of experience. this is just one of the pieces i made on the wheel, kind of a mini chalice in the 'oilspot' glaze'.
a really good idea for a date or as a group!
