I studied at UNSW Art & Design and Bezalel Academy of Art & Design, and have been teaching ceramics for 10 years.
I'm passionate about pottery because it's great for creativity and wellbeing. Wheelthrowing is meditative and fun, and creates a sense of peace, and a connection with nature and the earth. Like martial arts, where you harness your opponent's force and energy, you balance, manage, and build on the spinning force from the pottery wheel, using your own, to make something beautiful.

My friend and I had such a wonderfully inspired night in Leanne’s private workshop. Her teaching was patient, fun and informative. We had never done pottery before and left with some amazing creations and skills. We highly recommend this experience!!!
We had an awesome class with Leanne! She is a very patient and encouraging instructor who is generous with her time and materials. Would recommend a lesson with her to anyone in Sydney!
Better than what I expected! Leanne is an excellent teacher, and has a great personality too ! Everything was just perfect , the studio , all the materials provided, atmosphere, content, I just couldn’t fault it! We had so much fun, it was our first time and def not the last! Thank you so much
We had so much fun!! Learnt some great introductory skills! Hoping to attend more in the future!
Loved it! Leanne was brilliant!
As we are from Perth unfortunately we wont be coming again but that's the only reason.
It was our first attempt at pottery and we’ve learnt quite alot from Leanne within a short span of time. Leanne was very patient and the lesson was very well structured. Highly recommended!
Pottery wheel lessons with Leanne was such a treat! Kind, knowledgeable patient, creative and inspiring! Wonderful set up with all the materials needed at your fingertips. My 14 year old daughter and friend loved it
Excellent teacher very patient and clear instructions and also very sensitive to needs of the attendees.
I had such a great time.
Leanne was great and teaching and letting us have a go even if we did it wrong.
Leanne was very patient and encouraging. She provided tips and minute details as to how to improve our skills during the introduction. The venue was easy to find as clear instructions were provided upon booking the class. We had a lot of fun. Thank you, Leanne :)
Leanne is awesome! She is a fantastic teacher - very experienced, attentive and patient. We had a lot of fun and learnt a lot during the 2 hour session. In addition to learning how to make a bowl/cup on the wheel, we learnt a bit about the holistic process. Her studio was cosy and well-equipped. Would recommend checking out Leanne's class!
The class is great! Leanne is friendly. We make a set of Japanese green tea cup and a rice ball! Now we need to buy a chopsticks to make it one set
Leanne is a terrific teacher and I'm really looking forward to doing another class with her.
Very friendly and went through the teaching steps in an easy to understand way. Lots of fun
I needed to get a better understanding of materials and techniques best suited to my project and Leanne was a wealth of information and advice accumulated over years of experience and experimentation which she shared freely. I am so happy that it was better than I expected!
My partner and i had a wonderfully relaxed Sunday morning learning pottery with Leanne. Leanne made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived and wasted no time in putting us to work!
We really enjoyed the whole experience and recommend Leannes class to all ages.
Our pottery class with Leanne was exceptional. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable. Her workspace was very well organised and all tools and equipment were supplied. Would definitely recommend this class.
Fantastic class, highly recommended. Leanne worked at a good pace and was super friendly. Very enjoyable!
I really enjoyed the pottery class. It was great to have a one on one lesson and I learnt a lot.
Great intro class for beginners, highly recommending it! Leanne is very experienced and a professional teacher.
Leanne was a fantastic teacher who taught us pottery newbies the basics of the pottery wheel. Her instructions were very easy to follow and allowed us to be creative with our design. We had a great day and are excited to see our finished pots after they are fired! Thank you Leanne :)
We had such an exceptional experience with Leanne! Her teaching style and instruction was so good and being able to have such a personalised class with her guidance was just amazing - and with a guaranteed product to take away at the end of it too! Can’t wait for our bowls to arrive so we can put them to use! Thank you Leanne!
Leanne was a great teacher - she was very good at explaining things, and provided a great mixture of demonstrating, but also letting us learn by trying things for ourselves. She also gave us options, so we could tailor the class to exactly what we wanted. She provided all of the equipment and even sent our final products out to us - it was good value for money. Highly recommend!
The experience was absolutely fantastic! My partner took me for my birthday and it was the best present. She is a fantastic teacher and we absolutely fell in love with pottery. Really recommend this experience for anyone of any age! Super fun!!!
Fantastic class by an amazing teacher. I can't believe how much I learned and that I actually produced a pot on the wheel in 2 hours. Loved every minute of it. Leanne is extremely talented and is so very good at explaining techniques. If you want to try pottery this is the workshop to do.
Cute little studio, had all the tools we needed and a very relaxed environment to learn. Leanne was very friendly and a wonderful teacher. Overall had a great first wheel spinning experience and would definitely come back again!
Such a great class! So much knowledge shared with us, lots to learn and try for ourselves!
My friend and I had the best time at Leanne’s pottery class! She was so great at explaining the different techniques to us and allowed us time to practice before making our final product. I can’t wait to see how our bowls turned out. I definitely would recommend Leanne’s class to anyone :)
