Enjoy the online class - after booking, you'll get a link to join the interactive class.

The workshop provides a great platform for children, parents, the entire family to be creative and explore the endless possibilities using clay.

With the assistance of our experienced teacher, you and your children can choose to learn how to make a range of pieces including clay animals, tableware, hanging ornaments, mini landscapes and more!

You will also learn a variety of decoration techniques, including stamping, carving and sgraffito. It's fun, educational and most importantly it gives you a great opportunity to express yourself.

Once the class is over your pieces will be created but not quite complete!

The next step is to dry them for approximately 3 days or until they are no longer cold to touch. Then you can bring them to our Pottery Studio in Mordialloc for firing *If you are not local google your local pottery and ring them to book in and use their firing service. Firing cost is usually around $9 a kilo per firing. If you would like to turn your creation in to a food safe vessel, look at purchasing our add on glazing kit.

Our company organised 4 virtual pottery classes for over 100 of our employees currently based in Victoria last week. Initially I was really worried about how we would pull it off (considering the logistics of everyone getting their packs during lockdown and making it to a virtual class) but our teacher Tania just made the whole experience a dream. She had the packs sent out at light speed, helped track down any that hadn't made it to their destination and was so flexible with session times. The session ran smoothly and Tania's warm and fun nature coupled with her expert knowledge made everyone feel at ease. We received excellent feedback on the classes and I really couldn't of asked for a better outcome! Highly recommend for small or large groups! Thank you Tania!

Tania is an absolutely fantastic teacher! She made everyone feel relaxed and provided valuable information in a fun light-hearted way. Tania and the Class Bento team (Giorgia and Tonya) have been an absolute pleasure to work with behind the scenes organising over 100 clay kits to be delivered super quickly, even during lockdown in Melbourne! The whole process has just been seamless - cannot thank you enough!

The team had a great time learning how to make monsters. Tania was really friendly and gave really clear and easy instructions to follow along too.

Will look to do another class soon.

Thank you so much!

It was so much fun and the teacher, Tania, was so lovely, encouraging and patient! The teacher gave clear instructions and ensured everyone was up to speed before progressing to the next stage of the clay build. The clay hand building class was for an adult birthday party and was held over Zoom as the attendees were in three different states and in many different households, and some were in coronavirus stage 4 lockdown in Melbourne. We made goblets, as chosen by the birthday ladies. This was the perfect way to celebrate!

A fantastic teacher who taught us novices to make wine goblets in less than an hour. We had so much fun and produced some wonderful creations.
