Amy is hands and heart behind Deep Blue Ceramics.

Devoid of creativity for much of her previous professional life she fell head first into Ceramics; learning, making, sharing and teaching, all after falling in love with a handmade mug purchased at a market.

Amy's classes are welcoming and supportive, beginner friendly one of experiences through to term length courses for intermediate potters. She loves to share #clayplay with individuals and private groups alike!

At Deep Blue Ceramics we're deeply passionate about the environment and social justice issues and strive to make a positive impact wherever we can.

Amy was amazing. I came along to a private class with my elderly Dad. Amy was patient and kind with both of us. The studio is a warm welcoming environment. Hopefully we will be back for more classes in the future.

Teacher's response

Thank you Rowena, I’m so glad I could facilitate some fun quality time with you and your dad.

Attending the clay play class was a delightful experience, blending creativity with relaxation. Crafting clay cups and bowls alongside friends provided a unique bonding opportunity. The atmosphere was laid-back, allowing us to unwind while enjoying a refreshing beer. A perfect blend of artistic expression and social enjoyment.

Leanne O'Callaghan Oct 2023


Would recommend doing this pottery session. Was extremely therapeutic and fun. Amy the facilitator was very helpful and supportive. My husband and I received this as a Christmas gift and enjoyed it immensely.

Teacher's response

We had an absolutely amazing experience! we had a group of us all attend one evening for some fun and creativity and Amy really delivered. we learnt about how to 'play' with clay and created some amazing pieces with clear directions. Amy encouraged freedom of our own creations and offered ideas and guidance when needed. her new studio was comfortable and we see many potentials with the space in years to come. (we also loved meeting the Turkey)

Teacher's response

Thanks for your review! It's fantastic that you and your group had fun and got creative with clay under Amy's guidance. We love encouraging freedom of creativity while providing clear directions, so it's wonderful to know that you felt supported in your own creations while also receiving ideas and guidance when needed. We hope to see you again soon for more fun and creativity.

Amy took us through 2 ways to create pots/vases/containers and then encouraged us to get making! Basically unlimited clay to make as much as you can during the class. She's also got lots of paints and stamps for decorating.
Her new studio space is lovely and private. Bring snacks! It was a great evening. Can't wait to pick up our peices!

Do yourself a favour and book in for this class! Such a warm and friendly vibe, with the perfect balance of supportive instruction, combined with the time and freedom to play and create. The eco friendly, quality materials and the setting in a beautiful and peaceful yoga studio were a bonus I really appreciated. Great value class. Five stars all the way!

John Ruman Sep 2023


Warm, friendly, fun and professional.

We were made to feel welcomed and looked after as soon as we walked through the door.
The location was cute and perfect for a hands-on creative session. We had heaps of clay to play with and the session was easy to understand, and follow. We felt like we had a lot of time to get our hands dirty and create some amazing pottery.

We enjoyed every minute and would do this again!

Teacher's response

Thank you, John. We're delighted to hear that you had an awesome time. We would love to see you again for another enjoyable experience!

Being my first time to one of amys classes I had so much fun, I was able to channel my inner child play with clay and making a mess and lovely perfect imperfect ceramics.
Amy is a wonderful teacher so calm and enthusiastic about her craft, she brings that energy to her class.
I will definitely book in again.

This was a wonderful experience! The teacher was incredible at showing us techniques and encouraging us to achieve our best. The others who were attending the class we're all very kind and made the class easier to actively participate in. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, and can't wait to see how my pieces will turn out after the firing process!
