You will then decorate your pieces with glazes.

Great session, the instructor Sarah was terrific, good relaxed balance between teaching different and techniques and letting people do their own thing and go at their own pace. Fun time!

A great workshop I really enjoyed it. Sarah was awesome and so much fun. The tips and tricks she gave us were really helpful.

Melanie Woods Jul 2021


We loved this class! The teacher, Sarah, was great. She taught us different methods for using the clay and then we were free to make something (or a few things). We needed up making a few things (little bowls etc) and got to glaze them. It was really relaxing and we learnt lots about clay. Plus a great way to release some creative energy!

Nicola came to our work place and set up a station for all 7 of us to make our little clay pots/ornaments/vases great way to do a team bonding experience. She was on time, friendly, professional and joined in with our conversations. A fun evening was had by all.

Naomi Robertson Feb 2020


The class was awesome! Hands on instruction for techniques you can’t really bugger up even if you tried! Such a wide range of colours and tools to play around with and am super excited to see what my pieces come out looking like when they’re all fired up!

John Chana Nov 2019


She was friendly, helpful to the perfect amount which allowed us to handle the clay independently while providing guidance whenever required. Allowed for great hands on experience

Asami Ako Sep 2019


Nichola was amazing! She showed us all the techniques and help us make our special pots, dish, and cups. She was also telling us where we can get all the equipment for pottery so we know where to go if we want to take it further. I had so much fun with my girls for my Hens and Nichola made the day very special. It was 3 hrs workshop but time flies because we were so into it!
