I took my mum to this class as a birthday present. We both thoroughly enjoyed the class and made clay pieces that we both loved! Tahlia was a great teacher and inspired us both to be as creative as possible. Can’t wait to get them back once they are fired.

Maya Kuncewicz May 2024

This pottery class was great, we had so much fun. The teacher was super helpful and gave great guidance while also letting us use our own creativity.

Lauren Sharman May 2024

Harder than it looks but great fun, went with the whole family for Mother’s Day and made some awesome memories and keep sakes

Amanda Trinder May 2024

The class was an early Mother’s Day gift and my teenagers came as company. We had a great time. We’d never used a potters wheel before and it was great fun. I surprised myself with my creations. The teacher was very helpful with a good demo at the start and was very encouraging.

Maddy Wright May 2024

Lovely and friendly teacher, comfy space and good fun. Highly recommend this for any event

Caila Browning May 2024

I decided to attend a pottery class on my own as a relaxing activity. The class was exactly that! Fun and relaxing. Clay was provided and you were guided through techniques and then given the freedom to play around with shaping the clay into plates, bowls, cups or whatever your heart desired.

I managed to make 9 pieces throughout the 2 hour session, 1 of which was included in the price of the lesson, 3 I bought separately for $10 each.

The class is great value for money, the venue is a beautiful and cosy studio where you’re surrounded by other pieces of work.

Having never used a wheel for pottery before, I entered the class unsure of how I would do. By the time I left I had gained so much confidence in my ability and discovered that I do really enjoy this technique.

A massive thank you to our teacher Shelly who was so patient and took her time with carefully explaining and assisting us when needed!

Laura Sneath Apr 2024

This was super fun and the teacher was great! Would definitely try this class again!

Nicholas Dinuzzo Apr 2024

Excellent experience, supportive environment and lots of fun. Everyone is so helpful. Would highly recommend.

Fiona Kelly Apr 2024

I really enjoyed learning to 'spin' clay. Our teacher was great, there was only 3 of us in the class so that was a bonus, and by the end of the session I felt I was getting an understanding of clay and the wheel. Wish I lived closer so I could keep going with more classes. I recommend

Sabrina Gray Apr 2024

We went for a bit of birthday fun, to learn and make some cute pottery.
Our teacher was fun, kind and showed us how to make a bowl before we started. I did have to rely on my more experienced friend to show me techniques that resulted in some effective pieces, because the teacher didnt really help to solve the problems we identified with our own techniques.
The studio was clean, had all the right tools, easy enough to get to (although not as easy to find in the dark), and we can get our pieces in 4 weeks by monitoring McCanless’ posts on instagram.
The clay was gritty, and two in our party came away with small scratches on our palms from the friction. We did have unlimited access to clay, and were allowed to increase the amount of clay we threw.
We also got the sip and eat package, which was a lot of food and no time to eat it. The teacher admitted that noone ever eats through the whole thing. Although it was yummy (grapes, cheese, biscuits, pretzels, nuts and dip) and the sparkling was delightful, it doesnt mix well with having clay all over your hands. I would advise against that package.

Georgia Papagiannopoulos Apr 2024

Great lesson. Highly recommend. Learnt how to use the wheel and had lots of guidance.

We had a fabulous time learning the art of wheel throwing. Will was an informative teacher and explained the techniques well.

Thankyou again Will, you are very talented:)
Megan and Rory

Elizabeth Myszka Nov 2023

We booked this activity for our friends birthday and loved the idea of doing something a little bit different.
With this class you get a lot of bang for your buck, a generously large platter board and sparkling( with top ups) along with a nice selection of ceramics to paint.

Our teacher was so lovely offering lots of encouragement to us with no artistic bones in our body to keep going.

Would definitely love to do this again.

Awesome session with a delightful instructor. The two hours absolutely flew by as we tried to create something perfect, with good help we nearly got there. Had a blast and would definitely do it again

Pimwadee Intharasri Sep 2023

What can I sayit was more than a pottery class! There is so much more to pottery, becoming aware of yourself and becoming one with what's in front of you. We learnt pottery, meditation, philosophy and ways of life pretty much! Will is very knowledgeable. His calmness and mannerism makes him such a good teacher. You instantly feel so calm and tuned out from the rest of the world. Such a blissful experience. All the materials were given. The location is right opposite a park. Good for a stroll before/after class. Ample parking. Thank you so much, Will!

Love and appreciation

Kim and Daniel

Had a one-off class with McCanless Pottery, and it was incredibly fun! Will's both a highly skilled potter, and a very astute instructor. He identified ways to help refine our pieces and improve our techniques, while keeping a motivating and chill atmosphere during the class. His class has a good mix of 1 on 1 time while also giving you the chance of figuring it out at your own pace.

Highly recommend for anyone at any skill level, ranging between just wanting a fun class to do one night, to people who are really interested and want to hone the craft.

Emma Aug 2023

The class at McCanless was fabulous. Teacher Will was calm and patient and a terrific instructor. I’ve done a few wheel classes in the past but Will’s style of teaching was clear and simple to follow giving great results.

I’ll definitely be back again! Also great to know of a place locally that offers a firing service.

Thanks Will

Karen Byrne-Jones Jul 2023

I met my teacher Will and he was extremely lovely working alongside my fears and needs. He was very forthright and explained every step all so brilliant. I have chosen to attend twice a week at this stage as the pottery also was something I loved experiencing with. A HUGE thankyou to my teacher and my Support Co-Ordinator for introducing this wonderful activity.

Lachlan Hunter Jul 2023

Really great experience! A very informative session that was lots of fun. Great motivation and guidance through everything needed to have a positive wheel throwing experience.
Highly recommend Can’t wait to pick up our pieces.

Karla Erenbots Jul 2023

Will was the most incredible teacher as soon as we arrived at the class he had us involved and intrigued with the process of wheel throwing … he was very informative of the art and made us feel that we could perhaps make the most exquisite piece that he has ever seen … I loved that enthusiasm … a true artist and teacher … I believe you must have the quality of enthusiasm and love for your art to become a teacher …

Georgia Moloney Jul 2023

Will was an amazing teacher! Was patient and helpful to everyone in the class, and I left having had fun and learned a lot. Wheel pottery was as challenging as I expected but I came away having really enjoyed myself, and my bowls didn’t come out too badly either!

Michael Oldham Jul 2023

Great teacher who was very patient with us newbies . His encouragement help build our confidence as we progressed

Grace Huang Jun 2023

It was a very good experience. Anyone looking to handmake some pieces as gifts or themselves should come here for it.

Will is a great instructor and an overall positive guy. I would come back again if I ever get the chance.

I believe everyone would have a great deal of fun trying it out.

Thx Will and all the best.

Alana Musolino Jun 2023

We had a great time today at this class, our first time throwing. With the help of a few saves from Will, our instructor, we made a bunch of pieces we were quite happy with to have fired and glazed. We shared the space with a couple of people doing their own thing which was cool to see - certainly appreciated their skill as we tried to wrangle half the amount of clay! Would recommend ☺️

Casey Dias Jun 2023

We had an excellent class with Jacquie. She was very patient with us and her instructions were easy to follow. We got three lovely pieces of pottery each. Would highly recommend!

Lilly Bunn May 2023

Will was friendly and had a great sense of humour and a lot of knowledge of wheel throwing. He helped you get back on track when you made mistakes so you didn't have to start from scratch.
The space was really nice and laid back and there is a little coffee cart thing out front as well.
Everything was provided (clay, tools, apron etc) and he even had a little space heater which was nice considering art studios are usually arctic.
All in all, it was a great class to take as a birthday celebration with family.

Freya Parke May 2023

Melissa Child May 2023

The wheel throwing class was so much fun and Will was a great teacher.
The venue was relaxed and friendly, would highly recommend this class

Steve Mirams May 2023

I had American Will as my teacher and straight off he reminded me of an American actor. Softly spoken he was so good at showing me how to throw onto the wheel and create three bowls in my time there. Also interestingly, Will explained the science behind it all and how to tune your body into the clay turning, which made me understand quickly as he was what he demonstrating

Will explained messing up is good because it makes you think and understand what you did wrong and he demonstrates with quality instruction how to do it right. At the end of the session I felt very confident in myself and was very pleased and surprised with what I achieved with Wills help.
The venue is great, quiet and clay examples are all around on shelves ready for firing, ( including mine) I encourage peeps of all ages to go and try out. I intend to go again, and mega thank you again to Will I really enjoy the session.
