Dive into the tactile world of pottery with our beginners hand building clay workshop, nestled in the vibrant heart of Melbourne.

For the first 30 minutes, your expert instructor will guide you through the techniques of crafting plates, cups and bowls, as well as the art of adding intricate decorations to your creations.

Then, with 1.5 hours of hands-on practice, you can immerse yourself in the hand building process, bringing your vision to life under the helpful guidance of our teachers.

While this session focuses on the building and sculpting aspect with no glaze, those interested in adding a splash of colour to their creations need to enrol in a second session (you can book the session again) for glaze painting. Please remember to sign your name and the date on the bottom of your work before firing.

Whether you're looking to spend quality time with family, seeking a unique date idea, or simply exploring a new hobby, our beginners hand building clay workshop offers a memorable experience that combines learning, creativity, and fun in a supportive environment.

Nestled in the heart of Melbourne, our unique handmade workshop studio invites you on an immersive journey into the rich tapestry of China’s intangible cultural heritage.

What is China’s Intangible Cultural Heritage?
China's intangible cultural heritage encompasses the traditions, practices, crafts, knowledge, and skills passed down through generations. It is the soul of Chinese culture, representing the living roots of its civilization and the vibrant expressions of its identity. From the intricate artistry of pottery and calligraphy to the ancient practices of incense and wax making, each craft tells a story of historical significance, cultural values, and ancestral wisdom.

Our Courses:

  • Pottery & Soft Pottery: Shape the clay into forms that echo the ancient craftsmanship of Chinese potters.
  • Incense Making: Blend natural scents that have perfumed Chinese temples and homes for centuries.
  • Wax Making: Craft candles inspired by the ones that have illuminated China’s past.
  • Calligraphy: Learn the art of brush strokes that have been a revered form of expression throughout China's history.
  • Tie-Dyeing: Dive into fabric art that reflects the vibrant ethnic diversity and creativity of China.
  • Lacquer Fans: Decorate fans that carry the elegance and aesthetic sensibilities of Chinese culture.

And more...

Why Choose Us?
