One-off Introductory Wheel Throwing Class

Have a go at making pots on the wheel



2 hours Class size 1 to 6

label $130 (or 4 payments of $32.50 Afterpay)

Join us in the studio for this fun introduction to the pottery wheel!

You'll be guided every step of the way in a small group of up to 6 students.

There are different stages to making pots, these include:

  • throwing
  • trimming
  • firing
  • glazing
  • firing again

This two-hour technique class will focus on the first stage of 'throwing'. You will feel the sensation of soft clay being molded into a pot under your hands as the wheel spins, a unique and mesmerising experience! You will be encouraged to experiment and play with different shapes and see what the wheel is capable of.

You can choose to make this an experience only and leave your pot at the studio, or take your pot home as it is. Please be aware that it will not have gone through the trimming, glazing and firing process. If you would like to learn those steps, your teacher will be able to arrange a follow-on class. These include one-off sessions or 5-week foundation courses.

Come along and discover this amazing art form in our beautiful studio at Bondi Beach!

Located at iconic Bondi Beach, Bondi Pavilion Clay Studio nurtures creativity, wellbeing and community through clay.

The Studio is run by Agatha Pupaher and Leanne Berelowitz in partnership with Waverley Council. Agatha co-founded and currently manages Sydney Clay Studio, a creative space and kiln firing service in St Peters. Agatha is a ceramic artist and educator who is passionate about sharing her love of clay. Leanne has a BFA in ceramics and glass from Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem and a Master of Cross-disciplinary Art and Design from UNSW Art and Design, Sydney. She has been teaching ceramics for 15 years. Both Leanne and Agatha are practising ceramic artists who exhibit their work in group and collaborative exhibitions. In addition, they have both worked in former careers; Agatha, as a child and family psychologist, and Leanne, as a registered nurse. They value each other’s transferable skills and expertise in working with people of all ages, and draw on them for their art teaching.

Agatha and Leanne value deep learning and making, and aim to help students create space to pause, reflect and reconnect with themselves, each other, and nature. Hands, head and heart working together to bring ideas to life. They teach the classes along with a small team of passionate tutors and ceramic artists who share a similar slow approach to creating/working with clay. While pottery/ceramics is about making things, their teaching approach is to initially fixate less on the outcome, and focus on building skills and developing techniques through creative exploration.
