Looking for fun things to do in Adelaide this week? Discover the thrilling yet calming experience of wheel throwing at this beginner-friendly pottery class in Burnside.

This unique session focuses on possibly the most enjoyable way to make ceramics - wheel throwing! So get some friends or family together and learn how to prepare your clay and get to work on the spinning pottery wheel.

Each participant will have his own wheel. We'll help you through the process of creating your pottery piece on the wheel, decorating it and adding those all-important finishing touches. You'll also have the choice of two different types of clay to get to grips with!

At the end of this beginners pottery class, we will process and fire your favourite piece for you so you can pick it up eight weeks later food-safe and ready for you to use.

Not only will you walk away with some new artsy pottery skills, a bespoke one-of-kind handmade ceramic, but also a big smile on your face after a relaxing and enjoyable experience. See you soon!

My daughter wanted to do this class with me as a “mother-daughter” experience. She is creative, me not so much. The studio was easy to find and had a small carpark with free parking. Josie the instructor was warm and welcoming, and gave the most informative demonstration at the beginning to help us get started. Josie was there the whole time, assisting in techniques and reassuring everyone that it was ok if the clay throwing didn’t work out, just try again. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone! And we are thinking we will go back and try one of the hand-building classes…

Suzanne Pfitzner Dec 2023

Loved this first-time experience of using a potters wheel! So much that I will be back!
Leah was great, although the instructions would have been good as WE followed along - so much to remember otherwise.
This is the start of a new hobby, I’m sure!
Thank you!

The experience was great. The only thing I could say was there was not enough time to hone any skills. But I suppose I can come back.

Anna Ford Aug 2023

We had a lovely afternoon playing around on wheel, a fun activity for a small group of people, for all ages and skill levels!

Sally Gray Aug 2023

I had a wonderful experience. Our teacher was very friendly, personable and gave a very clear demonstration as well as support along the way when we needed it. It’s quite the skill to master the wheel but with practice even a beginner like myself was able to produce beautiful pieces. It has definitely left me wanting to do it again.

Amazing class and so much fun! the venue and teacher were fantastic, Leah was very knowledgeable, helpful and made you feel at ease especially as a beginner.

Caroline Jan 2023

Just had the best night ever with my son at the mindful pottery wheel class. Gorgeous studio, and great tutor. We were able to get stuck in straight away, made some duds but got more confident as it went along. Such a fun experience. Could have spent the whole night there just throwing pots. I am inspired. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Dominic Jones Jan 2023

Thanks so much for a great experience, leah was so friendly and so accomodating and her priority was obviously to make sure we had a good time and took something away from the class (both in knowledge and some pottery)

This was so much fun. It was a really well-structured class that gave us an excellent opportunity to learn and practice. The teacher was clear and helpful.

Isaac Iannella Dec 2022

The class and Instructor were both excellent. The Instructor really tried her best to help everyone and knew what she was talking about and how to explain it.

The only issue is the rescheduling system as it is not very flexible to try and change classes.

Overall felt as though the instructor encouraged everyone equally no matter what skill level they presented with.

Jasmine Fung Nov 2022

The session was enjoyable and we got to explore and experiment with how the pottery wheel works! We had great fun and would highly recommend!

Really happy with what we made, the biggest challenge is just getting past making your first one because you second guess yourself so much the first time I think, after I saw how lovely the first piece looked I felt so at ease even though I know pretty poor haha

I was terrible, but Leah was so patient and we had a great time.
My daughter was terrified of the wheel and Leah was kind and understanding and supported her in alternative methods.
Will definitely be coming back!

Michael Katschner Sep 2022

Very nice venue, friendly instructor. It was a great experience I highly recommend. Would be a great date idea for those that love trying different things, a fun activity for the family or for those interested in giving it a go.

Thank you Will definitely recommend

Good clean messy fun with my wife on a date night.

Was a social class so not much 1:1 support. Jen was friendly and made everyone feel relaxed.

John Coveney Jun 2022

The practical aspect was fine, although 1.45 mins making pots was bit too long for me. I would have appreciated bit of history of ceramics, different cultures practice of making pots.

The facilitator needs a few skills in managing groups.

Nari Kim Jun 2022

Happy to re-enrol this class! The teacher, she was very helpful and tried to explain as much as she could as the session was 2 1/2hr. Can't wait to see my little bowls!

We had a great experience at Mindful Pottery Wheel Class. My husband and I went as a date and found it a relaxed and fun style of teaching. My husband enjoyed it more than he expected and loved using his hands to create something both functional and beautiful. Although I had more trouble picking up the skill I loved the experience all the same!
