Join us for this fun three-hour Melbourne workshop in which you will learn how to hand-build simple clay forms. This workshop is perfect for beginners!

You can choose to create a cup, a plate, a bowl or something entirely different! You will use coil, pinch and slab techniques and you can then decorate your pieces using glaze.

We'll begin with a thorough explanation of the equipment and materials required. We will then move on to a detailed demonstration of hand-building techniques. A range of books and items to provide inspiration will be on hand. You are encouraged to bring your own ideas for inspiration.
You will then decorate your pieces with glazes.

All materials and tools are provided. Please wear clothing you don't mind getting messy.

Please note that your final pieces will need to be fired after the workshop and can be collected from the studio or arranged to be posted for an additional cost once finished.

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!

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

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!
