Hi My name is Emi. I’ve been involved in pottery for over 15 years and running this studio for 12 years.

At Ceramic Studio En, I create the perfect tableware for restaurants and cafes. My tableware has been selected by a number of Sydney restaurants since 2007.

Here at the studio, everything is made individually with care and passion. I take pride in my craftmanship and ready to cater for your need and imagination.

I would like to share the knowledge and experience of making tableware with you in the class. This is your perfect opportunity to create and add a unique touch to your table at home! Or it could be a unique gift that’s only one in the world for someone special.

I'm happy with my end product - just wish I was given better information beforehand (bring snacks and water!) and during the session i.e. I thought Id get to make 5 pieces but didn't get told it depends on how fast you make your pieces on day one.
You have to assume and/or ask how to do things and where things are. This may be due to a number of classes being run at the same time and only one tutor.

Lots of fun, I managed to get 5 pieces out of the lesson, and can't wait to go back for some glazing

the class was a good value for money initially I thought 4 hours is too long but it actually passed so quickly making the pottery was a really nice experience

Susan Burns Nov 2019

Part 1 of the course was fantastic. Emi is a great teacher. She explained techniques clearly and was quick to provide guidance and suggestions when needed. There were ample materials and lots of options for pieces to make. I can’t wait for part 2. The studio is easy to get to, just minutes walk from the station.
