Looking for relaxing things to do in Melbourne? Experience relaxation and mindfulness as you play and shape pottery on the spinning wheel at Heer Pottery Xu's studio.

In this hands-on class, you will learn the enchanting art of wheel pottery with our friendly teacher, and make one to four unique ceramic pieces to take home the same day!

For the first 30 minutes, your teacher will introduce you to the magic of the wheel, familiarise you with essential setups, and provide you with insightful tutorial cards to guide your journey.

In the next one hour, you will be immersed in a therapeutic clay crafting experience by yourself. Let your creativity flow and mould your masterpiece. (Our teacher will be there to create a supportive and unobtrusive environment, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in your creative process. If any questions or ideas pop up, feel free to ask!)

Then, in the last 30 minutes (picking up work and cleaning machines), the teacher will help you take your pieces off from the wheel and together, as a community, we'll tidy up our workspace, ensuring everything is in place. The teacher will guide you step-by-step, helping your workbench look clean.

By the end of the class, you'll be able to take every piece home just on same day!

Just a heads-up! While our workshop doesn't cover the firing process, the good news is that your creations will air-dry beautifully. You can use them as charming decorative plates for your watches, keys, or jewellery. It's a fun way to add a personal touch to your space!
