An utterly addictive class! We want to make an entire set of bowls, vases and pots much better than buying a set from Sophie Conran (even though we quite like the Conran aesthetic!)

This class was so fabulous - so relaxed and flexible around our skill levels (there were five of us) as well as our stylistic preferences. We went back for a second time to add to our 'body of work' and might have to make it a regular quarterly visitation. A wonderful experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beginners class with Carol! The last time I touched clay was in high school (just over a decade ago), so I was nervous and excited to venture into this class. Carol is so sweet, patient, kind and humble. She has an abundance of experience and knowledge that she's willing to share in the comfort of her space. She has everything you need to inspire your creativity and inner artist, from the clay itself, tools and sketches. I'm excited to see what my piece looks like after the firing process!

I highly recommend Carol and her class for anyone wanting to step out of their comfort zone. I will definitely be seeing her again for more classes to expand my skills.

Such a fun and relaxing afteernoon learning to hand build with clay! Carol is a warm, patient and knowledgeable teacher and taught us how different techniques and supported us in building our individual pieces - I made a pair of coffee cups. Some parts were quite tricky e.g. coil building (oh. my. gosh.) but overall so fun to work with just your hands! It was a very small class of just 3 for us and it felt very intimate. Plenty of materials and tools provided, and we were shown how to work them and go at our own pace with Carol checking in and supporting us if we had any questions/sticking points. Overall I really enjoyed this and would love to try more handbuilding.

Carol was very helpful. Guided us throughout the whole process. Very supportive. Carol’s studio was great, airy and filled with natural light.
I regret not taking a photo of my own work before glazing because my hands was dirty.

Sallie Apr 2023

Carol was fabulous, really helpful, kind and fun. The whole atmosphere was lovely - fab studio, and as a group we all had so much fun, highly recommend. Thanks Carol!

Thank you for the amazing clay making class! I had such a fun and informative time. Carol's instructions were very clear, and demonstrations were easy to follow. I appreciated the individual attention Carol gave to each student, and the helpful tips provided to improve our techniques. The atmosphere of the class was very welcoming and relaxed, which made it easy to learn and enjoy the experience. Atmosphere would be more enjoyable with some background music. I like the clay sculpture I created, and I can't wait to try making more in the future. Thank you for sharing your expertise and passion for clay making with us!

Really enjoyed hand building pottery class! Carol was so welcoming and helpful! We also fell totally in love with Sam the Spaniel! Location was great - so much easier to park than I'd expected (for Glebe!)

Emily Vong Mar 2023

Teacher was very helpful all throughout the process. Street parking available but only for 2hours so not sure if I got a parking ticket or …

Neil Souza Feb 2023

Carol is an amazing teacher and has a lot of patience. She creates a very friendly and relaxed environment and is very social (oh so is the dog Sam. Love him). It was like doing pottery with a good friend and we had only just met which was a lot of fun. I learnt some interesting skills from her, the use of different tools and will definitely be back. She also adjusts to your skill level which really helped.

Liam Broughton Feb 2023

Had a fantastic session with Carol. Super helpful tips, and an awesome setup upstairs.

Carol is an excellent teacher. Very patient and keen to see each student come away with a piece of pottery they can be proud of.

Gabriella Feb 2023

Carol was lovely and helpful
The class was a bit large and we felt like she couldn’t be with all of us as we were all beginners, . Maybe a bit more explanation as what we were doing at the beginning… we all worked it out at end .
Venue is lovely, a bit of a hot day and some air con probs .
We learnt a few interesting techniques and would like to learn some more

Sue Lewis Feb 2023

My friend and I really enjoyed our class and we will definitely be back to learn more. We were lucky to have a great bunch of people in the class with us . It was a great introduction to Clay Hand Building enough to make us want to come back for more.

Bonnie Law Feb 2023

Carol was so sweet and very patient! The class was a small intimate one which made it really relaxing and fun. Everyone who was there was so friendly! Class was easy to follow along and if you get stuck, Carol is right there to help! Also a cute doggo likes to wander around your feet as an added bonus!

Robert Hill Feb 2023

Very enjoyable. Made a great project. Know the skills now to make some more “fun”

Karanon Qu Feb 2023

I came back, as I always do. I would typically give a five star review for this class, but I decided to take on star off simply because I want to anger the instructor. She introduced me to coil building and I can never recover from that experience. Also because I am petty.

Pottery class review by Karanon Qu - Sydney

Heidi Edelbi Jan 2023

First of all Carol thank you so much for being an amazing teacher and running a fantastic class. Was very therapeutic. The girls and i can not wait to head back. We miss Sam already. Give him a big old cuddle for us. Your skillset in clay work is phenomenal and we are so grateful you could share your knowledge with us. Thankyou for being patient and helping turn our work from good to great. YOUR THE BEST CAROL :)

Carol was amazing and so lovely and so helpful. Such a great experience for us

Tina N Jan 2023

Great relaxing activity. Carol was very attentive and gave clear guidance. She simplified the steps and stepped in to help when needed. It was easy to fall into a meditative state when moulding the clay. Again super relaxing and satisfied with class and end result. Added bonus-Sam, her dog, is friendly and adorable!

Lovely night spent with friends learning the pinch pot technique. Carol creates a warm and friendly atmosphere and helps you to create a piece to take home. She is a great teacher.

Karanonikos Umbalisyyrr Jan 2023

I went back, teacher was nice, clay was nice, serial killer house atmosphere was nice, etc. most importantly, there was this dog there that kept on trying to guilt trip me into giving him apples, but I respect his audacity. He’s clearly well trained and well versed in the art of psychological warfare.

Will be coming back. Everyone should come back. Everyone must come back.

Carol was a lovely teacher for a relaxing afternoon class, she guided the group well and made sure we all kept on track also keeping conversation with the class. Carol's studio is upstairs in her house, which was interesting but lovely to think she lets all her students in to her own personal space with her puppy.
Carol provided the clay used on the day, you also leave your work with her to be glazed at a nearby kiln service, then collect later on which is very easy!
The class was intimate with only 6 people total for the afternoon so we all got help and advice from Carol. I enjoyed the afternoon with my partner and cant wait to see what our end products look like! Thanks Carol

Dominique Cravero Jan 2023

Th class was fun and interesting with good instruction and a variety of options for objects to create.

This class far exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were high.
The peaceful atmosphere was beautiful. The teachers knowledge on the subject was obvious and this was complemented greatly by her kindness and approachability.
I would highly recommend this course, it was not only tremendous in its technical applications, but I also found it to be highly therapeutic.
I will definitely return for another class.
Thank you.

In a cozy upstairs workspace, Carol hosted an engaging class which catered to what we wanted to create. We started with a simple technique, then Carol guided us as needed. It felt calming and therapeutic to hand mould the clay and we all ended up with great pieces, which I look forward to collecting once fired. Happy to recommend this class to anyone seeking a calming, creative experience.

Carol's home studio was really nice to work in! We worked and chatted over three hours (4 students and Carol) and it was a really relaxing and nice time. I learnt some pottery techniques - felt like I was very steadily guided, but also like I had a lot of space to be creative in. We could make anything we wanted within the techniques so I chose to make a teapot, other students made planters and mugs. Had a lot of fun, would highly recommend
