Join us in a fun and relaxing pottery workshop, in the tranquil surrounds of Bundeena. Make a day of it while you're here - visit one of Bundeena's pristine beaches or do a bush coastal walk.

Discover the magic of throwing clay on a potters wheel in this hands-on introductory class.

The class will cover the following:

  • Overview of the components and operation of a pottery wheel
  • Why and how clay is prepared before throwing
  • Throwing techniques including centering, opening and raising.
  • Throwing different types of shapes. You will make three pieces including a cup and bowls.

You'll also get to choose the glaze colour for each of the pieces you make which will then be fired. You'll then be informed when the pieces are ready for pick-up (alternatively shipping can be arranged for an additional fee).

This class is regularly scheduled on weekends at 1:00 pm via the Book option. If you would like to book on a weekday, please use the ‘Request Private Class’ button, under the Booking Options section

We are also next door to the Bundeena Community Services Club which offers a full lunch menu with water views should you decide to lunch in Bundeena before or after the class.

Please note: Public dates for this class require at least 2 guests to run. In the unlikely event that we don't reach this number, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform you and allow you to get a refund or reschedule, so please watch your email/SMS one day prior to the class.

I have kids 6 and 8, just wonder if the class is suitable for the kids or only adults.

Unfortunately, the class is not suitable for young children due to the upper body strength required.
