I would highly recommend Janine and her classes to anyone. She makes art accessible for people like me with no artist background. She’s enthusiastic and encouraging and with a free flowing, relaxed style. She offers simple techniques that you can take home and create with.

Denbigh Chapman May 2024

Took myself and my mum to the beginners pottery wheel workshop this past weekend. Janine is lovely, so skilled and a great teacher. We created 3 super cute pottery pieces and will return to glaze them when they're ready. We really enjoyed our workshop and I am keen to return to create more pieces. The venue is an art studio in the heart of Montville, and everything is provided in the class, including refreshments. This was a great Christmas gift from my husband. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in trying out wheel pottery. Thanks Janine!

Amanda Cook Apr 2024

Had the most amazing, relaxing time doing the beginners pottery class. Janine is a wonderful teacher and with the small group size we were able to get one on one attention to help us perfect our first attempt. We will be back to do the glazing and for more workshops, the classroom was bright and airy and so creative, it’s quite mesmerising watching the clay transform and I found it to be wonderfully meditative.

This was a wonderful way to spend 2 hours on a Sunday. Thank you Janine for imparting your enthusiasm and joy for art, along with lots of well honed tips and tricks for a fledgling student like me. I appreciated your kindness and encouragement when I hit a little creative block midway!
I now have a range of skills I am looking forward to playing with and building upon.
Beautiful light filled space. Tea coffee and cake. Happy tunes.

I had such a great afternoon for my first pottery wheel class with Janine.
The class was the perfect size, with the studio located in the beautiful Montville. Parking was easy and the class was so much fun. I can’t wait to come back and see my three pieces and glaze them.
Highly recommend the chance to learn something new with great support.

Joel Gilmore Jan 2024

Great and fun pottery wheel workshop! We were complete beginners, and we got straight into it - making our first (broadly successful!) bowl in about 30 minutes, and three in total. Clear instructions, helpful intervention when needed, and a wonderfully positive environment - even when some of the students' bowls failed, it was always with great joy and laughter - and the teacher helped to quickly get the bowl back to the same position, so you didn't have to "waste time" repeating the early steps. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Montville!

Ginette Thomson Jan 2024

Loved doing this class. First time and Lynette was fantastic, she was
so patient and very helpful. Did this class with a couple of close friends and we had a ball. Lots of laughs and would definitely recommend !

Great value, we had such fun. I cannot draw (stick figures is it), but this was not "drawing", it was free flowing expression. Very relaxing & mindfulness inducing! Wonderful teacher, supportive & encouraging, and we learnt heaps of new techniques.

I had my first experience today on the pottery wheel and loved every moment. Janine was wonderful - so helpful and friendly. The time went far too fast and this brief 2 hour stint has only whetted my appetite for more. I can't wait to catch up with Janine and expand on what I learnt in this first lesson. The location was perfect, parking close by, clean toilets, large open and environmentally comfortable area to work on the wheels.

Leigh Rider-Craw Jul 2023

Janine was so encouraging and inspiring. Such a wonderful teacher, she was attentive to all. Janine lead us through techniques and styles that I would never have had the courage to try on my own. She has given me a wonderful beginners foundation and the attitude to be free to experiment and be expressive. Janine provided all paints and materials needed and made suggestions on inexpensive options of what you may need to continue painting at home. I'll be looking at Janine's other classes when i'm next up the sunshine coast way. What a wonderful morning and experience. Leigh

Had a fantastic time! I arrived with plenty of enthusiasm and zero experience. Our instructor (Janine) was very welcoming and made the class a real pleasure to attend. With her guidance, I went from binning my first attempt to having three finished pieces on the table by the end of the session. Has left me keen to attend more classes in future.

I did this class on my Birthday with my partner and it was so much fun! All materials and aprons provided, our teacher provided great instructions and would often step in to help if our masterpiece turned into a wonky mess (I had long nails so nicked the bowl once or twice). The class size was perfect as it was small enough to get individual assistance. Looking forward to glazing our masterpieces!

Babes Dec 2022

Janine Delgos from Art Workshops was a wonderful teacher who was generous with patience and skill. Absolutely loved this class and would highly recommend it to anyone. Janine’s humour and caring style helped turn what we felt were disaster creations into fun and memorable pieces of art

We had a great time with Janine doing the portraiture class as part of a Hens weekend. She was very encouraging, gentle and supportive and we all left with drawings we were proud of!

Fantastic birthday present for my daughter in law. Teacher was outstanding and even provided 3 very beautifully made cupcakes from the bakery downstairs to celebrate Sam's birthday. Way beyond all expectations, for someone like me who does not have an artistic flair, defiantly worth doing and recommend to all who visit the area

Janine was a patient and enthusiastic teacher, especially for a beginner like me and my 12 yr old. She took us through a step by step process which showed us a variety of techniques which we could use to put together some great art to takeaway.

What a great morning. My daughter and I had a lovely time. Janine, our teacher was friendly, encouraging, patient and very helpful toward everyone in the class.

The equipment was excellent and the venue in a great location. Got to love Maleny!

We are looking forward to returning in a couple of weeks time to glaze our pots and have another go at the pottery wheel.

I can highly recommend this class to anyone who would like an enjoyable and fun morning learning a new skill.

Thank you Janin

I enjoyed doing this class and learnt some techniques. Even though I had different paint to the teacher as my kit hadn’t arrived, she was able to provide instructions to enable me to use it effectively.

This was my first pottery wheel class and it was so much fun. The studio is in a beautiful space and Janine’s warm and welcoming personality put me at ease as she guided us through the steps to making our creations. I am excited to return soon to glaze the three bowls I made. I highly recommend this class and would like to bring my family with me next time.

Nicki Powell Apr 2022

I had such a fantastic time at this class.
Janine was so friendly and helpful from the moment I walked in, I went to the class alone but she made me feel very included with the entire group.
I had long acrylic nails which I knew would be a challenge - Janine was super patient and helped me work out the best way to work with the clay and my claws ;D!
We even had refreshments and delicious cakes from the bakery.
The venue was lovely and open and clean, Montville is so picturesque, such a great place to grab a bite and coffee before or after your class. (Depending how clean you stay! I was a messy one but some left spotless!)
We had all the materials we needed and what felt like unlimited clay!
There was a total of 5 people included myself and Janine, I met some really lovely people which made the class even more enjoyable.
I feel that I have all the basics skills to come back alone next time … for basic bowels at least!
The experience was great value for money, I’ll be back for sure!

Bec Cross Apr 2022

This class was fantastic. Janine was such a lovely teacher and planned the class very well to make great use of the time, with all materials provided.
Janine started by asking me a few questions to gauge what I was most interested in and guide our direction for the session. She was lovely to chat to and very genuine.
Great value for money as I came away with artworks to take home and lots of tips and techniques to work on.
I would highly recommend this class, great way to spend an afternoon and gave me lots to think about going forward.

I participated in the class as a sole aspiring artist and took a class on portraiture using graphite as a tool. Janine is such a wonderful teacher, as an incredibly amateur artist I was welcomed into the art studio with open arms. By the end of the class I was doing a portrait of Frida herself! The class has set a beautiful foundation for my future endeavours in portraiture and I will definitely be returning for another class!
