Excellent class and lovely teacher. My teenage daughter and her 6 friends really enjoyed the glazing class as a birthday activity and all said they would love to come back. The teacher was brilliant and helpful. Cool place.

Such a lovely experience for my mental health! Great music and the teacher, Georgina, did an amazing job at explaining the process!

Melissa Ilyas Jun 2023

Our teacher Renee was so lovely and clear with instructions! We had all the tools we needed and I loved that it was part of a store. We had a private section to focus on our work and afterward we strolled around the store. Learnt a lot about the process of painting and glazing and how colors can change in the end product. Had lots of fun overall and totes worth the experience! 4 stars cos I didn’t know we have to come back to pick up our finished product and I don’t live super close! But overall good experience

A great activity to do alone or with a friend. Location of the glazing area was cosy and had lots of inspiration around the shop. The teacher was very friendly and helpful in explaining everything we needed to know, and setting up materials. Would definitely recommend this to someone, or even do it again!

Loved the experience! Cute place and felt intimate considering it was inside a shopping centre (Marrickville Metro)! We painted a small bowl and a planter - and was so relaxing

Jasmine Alzate Mar 2023

I loved the glaze and sip class. There was an adequate selection of ceramics you could choose one of to paint. Our teacher gave pretty solid and simple instructions and popped around throughout to make sure we didn’t have any issues. Otherwise, had a lovely time just spending the time with my friends and doing our own designs and painting our drawings. Would do the class again!

Elly Zhang Mar 2023

Very fun! Glasses were provided. Teacher gave a brief clear overview and left us to it. Was very relaxing and had a lot of nice colours. Near shops, liquor, toilets

The class was set inside a lovely store in a artistic mall and we all had a nice walk from St Peters Station to there. The teacher and owner of the store was wonderful and patient throughout the whole experience as we painted on the ceramic pieces at our own pace (we were reminded of our scheduled time, though). We were also given a choice to choose either a already made mug or planter-pot ceramic piece to paint on (this was a 'Glaze and Sip Ceramic' Class btw) The teacher mentioned that we can explore and bring food/drink from the stores around the mall and come back as we want. Would not recommend following google maps as there was construction blocking a safe route, just follow the footpath towards the traffic lights. Although l kind of hoped to see the firing process and would like a bit more time to paint neatly, it was a really relaxing experience to share with loved ones.
By far my favourite pottery class to come to, would recommend to go when wanting a relaxing special day with loved ones.

Maryann Mar 2023

Fun quality time with friends and a great way to relax and detach from the world outside.

Tegan Skene Mar 2023

Fantastic time! Really fun and relaxing :) going at own pace, and great experience! Will do again!

I wasn’t expecting it to be a painting a mug class, I wanted to paint a pot but they didn’t have that available unfortunately even though advertisement said you could choose between a mug or a pot.

The teacher was informative and clear with instruction, making the class really enjoyable!
Location was convenient and well set out, we had the class room to ourselves which made for a really private experience.
Highly recommend this class for a great way to learn and be creative with pottery glazing.

It was a great class. I can’t think of any improvements needed. Well done!

I am a carer and my young person with a disability really enjoyed the class. The studio is located behind a sheer curtain of a beautiful gift shop so while we were waiting for the class to start, it was lovely to be able to browse.

The teacher (Renae) was welcoming and clear in her instructions. The materials and paints were all set up and ready. The space was comfortable and bright.

We were able to work at a leisurely, unhurried pace with Renae just popping in from time to time to check in. I also really appreciated that we were allowed to stay for an extra half hour to complete the piece.

With help, my young person was able to glaze and entire mug and we’re so excited to collect the finished piece in 2-4 weeks.

Free parking, proximity to toilets and having a ton of great food places in the same shopping center made the day stress free and extremely enjoyable. Highly recommend and I’ll be back with my own friends to paint some plant pots
