Introduction to Pottery Wheel Class

Andrea is a fantastic teacher! She was patient, helpful, and all round a great instructor! My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour class and we definitely got to experience something new. We were able to create 2 pieces each and can't wait to see how they turned out!

I attended the pottery class for a friends hens party and it was absolutely fantastic

The teacher was incredibly kind, flexible and prompt with the arrangements for the day and the class itself was wonderful. We all ended up making different things that we wanted and were supported throughout the whole process.

The day of the class was especially hot, and the teacher was very accomodating for all of us. The way the class was set up meant that we could all mingle and chat and play games which was awesome.

This is a fantastic class that I absolutely loved and would highly recommend as a fun activity but also lots of fun for a group event.
Thank you so much :)

Introduction to Pottery Wheel Class

A pottery wheel class for two in an artists' warehouse in Marrickville; all materials were provided and the teacher demonstrated the wheel, explained the steps and then coached us to make some pieces on our own. So much fun!

Got at the studio a bit before class and had a great conversation with Andrea about pottery. The class itself had only 4 people and was really fun. I created a beautiful cup and cannot wait for the end product.

Hand Building Pottery Workshop

Wow, we had a great time. The teacher was encouraging and gentle in her critique of our creations. This is a very practical course in that we learned skills to build useable vessels (once they’re fired for us by Andrea). I totally recommend ‘hand building pottery’ with Andrea.

Hand Building Pottery Workshop

Such a fun workshop. Did it with my partner to create Christmas gifts and my partner and I had so much fun. It was just the two of us instead of a class so it was more one on one. The instructor was so patient as well and you could really tell she was very passionate about what she does. No questions were left unanswered and we thoroughly learned to enjoy working with clay

Jack Dinh

Hand Building Pottery Workshop

We had a very large group, 18 people which Andrea was able to accomodate for. It was a hot and sweaty day and Andrea also provided buckets of ice, water and ceramic cups for us!

Andrea was an awesome teacher, super friendly and patient with all of us newbies to pottery.

Just about every single person in the team gave feedback saying how much they loved the afternoon with Andrea and the pottery class.

I highly recommend this class and will be recommending it for other team events at my work.

We had this most fantastic time with Andrea. She is such a great teacher and so warm and friendly and makes you feel good about what you are doing. The class was so relaxing and the time just flew by! The location is great, the studio is lovely and we were seated outside in a courtyard . We had lovely organic sparkling wine and delicious pastries. I could not recommend this experience more highly :)
We can't wait to see what our pieces look like. Thanks again Andrea.

My Wife and I enjoyed a wonderful 2hr introduction to pottery session with Andrea a week ago. Andrea welcomed us with some light refreshments which was unexpected and most appreciated. The studio was warm and inviting and the individual attention provided to us by Andrea was extremely helpful while we had fun creating our first masterpieces. We had an absolute blast and look forward to booking future classes.
