Kids Pottery Holiday Class for Small Groups

How to use the pottery wheel, sculpting and ceramic painting



2 hours Class size 3 to 4 label $63 or 4 payments of $15.75 Afterpay


This two-hour creative experience includes a bundle of pottery activities, such as the pottery wheel, sculpting, and ceramic painting. By the end of the two-hours, each child will make two pottery pieces which they get to keep.

Each child will spend some time at the pottery wheel and will be assisted by the teacher to create a cup or a bowl. Children will also experiment with freely shaping the clay and will sculpt a quirky succulent planter or a pencil holder. The young artists will have the opportunity to decorate their work with colourful ceramic paints.

Kiln-firing is included in the price but it takes approximately two weeks for the pieces to be ready for collection.

My memory of working with clay reaches back to my childhood, when I first attended a pottery course. My teachers encouraged me to go to art school, however I have pursued a different career. I studied psychology, completed a PhD, and have become a university lecturer. I have been a sessional academic since 2003 and throughout the years I have taught various subjects in the areas of cognition, neuroscience, and educational psychology.

It was in 2015 that I found my way back to clay and started to embark on my creative adventures. I have coined the term 'Wheelfulness' to connect the practice of working on the pottery wheel with the psychology of mindfulness. In my Wheelfulness classes, I encourage students to reflect on how their ability to master the clay is enhanced by positive mindset and repeated practice. I believe that this ‘wheelful' approach not only helps students become better potters but benefits other aspects of their life.
