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, bowl and plate.

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).

Absolutely loved this class! Was expecting to walk away with a ball of clay as a door stop but actually made 2 bowls and a mug!!! Great fun, great teacher and beautiful area to explore before or after class too!

Mary was more that welcoming and patient with the class. Would recommend this to anyone whether you're into it or not. The whole experience is fun, entertaining and you walk away with something you have made from a ball of clay.

Easy to find. Don’t need a thing, you simply turn up. The teacher was clear and demonstrated each step. I started knowing nothing and then before long I was shaping my bowl and seeing it take shape . Can’t wait to see it glazed. Worth doing !

The class was fantastic. We learned the basics and made three different pieces that will be fired and glazed for us.

The teacher was great! She was funny, insightful and passionate about pottery. Also very patient with us! The studio for the class was very cosy. We really enjoyed ourselves! We managed to make 2 bowls and 1 cup each and are awaiting for them to be glazed :)

Marion was a great instructor. The class was very hands on and practical. Marion helped us at every single step to make sure we both left with successful products. She was engaging and funny. She was very patient too. Overall, the class is great! Highly recommended. The only one is that we still haven’t been contacted on when we will receive our products by the post.:(

She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She was quick to react and paid lots of attention to the pieces. Really encouraging and a great experience well worth the hour drive from home!

Pottery workshop review by Pablo Comino By (attended on 8 Apr 2018)

The pottery class with teacher Marion was great! I had such a wonderful time with her and we could make three potteries which was awesome. She is very skillful and helped me very patiently since it was my firs time on making art but definitely not my last one. I strongly suggest everyone who are interested to join. You wont regret.
