Having studied art therapy my philosophy on teaching pottery is that it should be fun and easy so you can expect lots of humour and laughter at one of my sessions.

I've been teaching pottery for more than a decade and have had television appearances on both Channels 7 & 9.

This class was brilliant fun! It was welcoming and super instructive. By the end of the class we had each made a cup, and two bowls. This is an experience that I would absolutely recommend!

Pottery workshop review by Pablo Comino Sydney Review 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.
