Well taught and small class. Everyone’s piece was unique. l’m looking forward to bringing home my glazed piece in a few weeks.

Great option for a casual private group, quality material, but time runs out quickly and need an extra class for glazing.

My partner and I did the boobie mug workshop with Becca, who was so lovely! The instructions were clear and the class was a perfect pace to make a mug and not feel rushed through the process. Such a relaxing way to spend an afternoon! We will definitely be back!

Maria Rendon Mar 2024

Great instructions and fun experience! Loved that the small group size, which allowed us to get help from the teacher throughout. We had no experience and were still able to create two finished products. Highly recommend as a unique activity and you get to learn a new skill.

Lena Crowley Mar 2024

I was given a clay throwing class at Mitra Ceramic House for my birthday. I bought an extra ticket so that I could do the class with my daughter. Rebecca our instructor was patient and clear. All materials were provided including the aprons. It was a lovely therapeutic way to spend a Saturday morning. Will definitely go back, and will definitely give a class as a gift!

Cleo Gardiner Feb 2024

Mitra was very experienced and helpful for us as beginners learning the basic technique of wheel throwing. It was so meditative and enjoyable. Thank you.

Belinda Sullivan Feb 2024

Loved the class. The teacher was very knowledgeable and helpful. Great team bonding experience! Highly recommend.

El Dumigan Feb 2024

Have wanted to try out wheel throwing for a while and thought it would be fun to do a Sunday morning class. The space is super cute and the teacher was super lovely and kind. I feel I learnt a lot and am excited to see my pieces fired! Might even come back to graze them.

Kerri Phillips Feb 2024

Friendly, instructive and lots of fun. I really enjoyed this workshop as an absolute beginner with the wheel.

Jennifer McDowell Feb 2024

Thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. I did it to revise what I learned 30 years ago. Feeling confident now after just one lesson.

Pia Dennis Feb 2024

Received a voucher for Christmas after wanting to learn pottery throwing for a while. The venue is easy to find and has easy parking. As for the class itself, all materials were provided and our teacher was very accommodating and helpful. She first did a demonstration and then helped us at our own wheels, so you could pause and ask for directions if you were uncertain. The small class size (4) meant we each got help to make two nice pieces to take home.

Greg Sweetman Jan 2024

This was a fantastic chance to have a go at wheel throwing. Great information and advice and a good chance to have a go (with very mixed but fun results!) Highly recommended.

Fiona Hilditch Nov 2023

This was a great class for beginners or for people who just want to try wheel throwing pottery for fun. I like the fact that it was a small class size (4) as this allowed the teacher to spend more time with each of us. I thought it was great value for money as we got to make 2 pieces and we even had time to make a third piece. The teacher was great. They were very knowledgeable and explained everything very clearly. I am not very artistic but found the teacher and other students very encouraging in the class, which was great.
I would love to do more of these classes. The venue was nice and location was good. It's 5 stars from me :)

Ella White Nov 2023

The teacher was absolutely amazing. I am not very gifted in creative tasks, but she was patient and helpful in assisting me with my mug. The instructions were made to be super simple and easy to follow. I had such an amazing experience and will definitely be coming back.

Melissa Anderson Oct 2023

Becca was a wonderful teacher, very calm and patient. It was intimate and relaxing as there were only 4 students. Even though I wasn't great I still enjoyed it as it was more about the experience than the end product.

Ngarewa Oct 2023

Venue good.
Teacher amazing and knowledgeable.
Arrived a little late but managed to get 2 projects done.
Parking expensive so maybe get dropped off?
Overall experience was fun and recommend for everyone

Great teacher. Very helpful when not doing well. Helped to get back on track and gave great pointers

Aidan Solly Sep 2023

A great class!

Our instructor was very informative and the small group size meant she was able to assist everyone when needed.

The studio space was very clean and welcoming. Each person had their own wheel to work on as well as a good amount of clay and other sculpting tools.
Even working slowly and redoing some steps, I had ample time to work on my pieces.

Would highly recommend if you’re looking to try throwing pottery.

Excellent experience, good fun, good teacher, smooth experience. I am a man of little words :)

Claudia McTainsh Aug 2023

Teacher demonstrated well and clear on what to do. Very supportive and encouraging. We thoroughly enjoyed our first wheel throwing clay experience. Her engaging manner and patience made our experience a memory to treasure.

Clare Richards Jul 2023

I really enjoyed the morning making a cypriot pot and getting in the mood by listening to authentic background music. Small group of 5 with Beatrice as the teacher and Beatrice was lovely - as well helpful and professional. The time flew as we all created individual styles for our pots. I am looking forward to seeing it once out of the kiln. Was a really relaxing and fun morning. Venue had lots of street parking and having it on a Saturday meant the street parking was free. I would absolutely recommend this class as it was focussed and something a little different. I also liked everything was provided, including aprons, so you just could just turn up. For my first attempt I was more than happy!

Talisha Jasper Apr 2023

It was a great beginners class with a very sweet and helpful teacher!
A good amount of clay and the class allows you to make 3 pieces and fire 2, which is great value for the class.
Would recommend.

This was a fantastic class for a group of people who had no experience. Mitra was beyond helpful, friendly, and very accommodating of our schedule. I will definitely be coming back in the future.

My partner and I had a great time. The small group of 4 made the class very intimate and calm. The direction from the instructor was very clear and helpful and made the class a fabulous experience. I'm looking forward to getting my clay pieces back to showcase around the house!

Awesome experience overall, teacher was lovely and very patient. Loved the creative freedom, will definitely book again.

Tony Jojo Mar 2023

The teacher and overall experience was super fun!
It was nicely paced and allowed us to experiment with different things throughout the class - my girlfriend and I had a great time doing this together.

Will be back for more!

Emma Holland Mar 2023

I loved that it was a really small and intimate class allowing 1 on 1 feedback with the teacher. The vibe of the class with the music and everything was so calming. It was an amazing experience! Will be recommending to everyone!

Cameron Molver Mar 2023

Fantastic experience! Very enjoyable and friendly experience, could have been more time efficient, but that may be due to the class(and me) rather than the teacher. Im already looking toward another session, definitely worthwhile!

Jane Mayne Feb 2023

My mum and I arrived and Becca was so friendly and welcoming. She had 2 late comers and she was still as welcoming and kind even though she needed to repeat information and prep for someone that was not booked in on her end. Becca was informative, happy and helpful throughout the whole class and was wonderful company for newbies like us. The room was hot, aircon would have helped, hand clay work is hot business. But this didn’t take away from us thoroughly enjoying our session. We look forward to seeing our pieces after they’ve been glazed.
Thanks Becca!

I loved the feel of this clay and had fun creating my dream mug.
The venue is wheelchair accessible.
Just a note to people with sore backs, the chairs are not very comfortable.

Hand Building Workshop: Mug and Tray Set review by Alex Mills - Brisbane

Jill Gough Jan 2023

The teacher was excellent. Explained everything we had to do, then made sure we did as was required. The venue was easy to find, and quite a good set up, and only five people in the class, so the teacher had time to attend to us all.
Some of the mugs were really good, and some, not so good, but on the whole we learned to put it all together.
The trays were another thing. Hope they come out as good as we all hope.
It will be interesting to see them all finished.
I will certainly think about another class.

Sadly I wasn't unable to attend this workshop due to illness but the organiser had great communication

Robin Stammers Dec 2022

The class was excellent. Tyler explained each step and importantly explained why things were done this way. He has a great manner and the class was enjoyable. When the opportunity arises, I would love to return for further lessons. Thank you.
Cheers Robin

Great class, lovely teacherreally enjoyed the experience, would love it to go on a little longer.

Oceanna Robson Oct 2022

We still had 45 minutes left of the class and the teacher wanted us to already pack up. Really boring

Teacher's response

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear that our wheel throwing workshop did not meet your expectations. The workshop was ran with a recently joined instructor who is under training. We apologise if she has not communicated well with you or you felt the workshop was boring.

We normally provide 3 balls of clay to try on the pottery wheel. Depending on you fail centring the clay or not you might finish early. We always provide more clay to practice if you fail. We understand that some students might decide to leave earlier if the extra pieces won’t get fired by us.
