If you are looking for school holidays activities in Sydney, check out all our holiday workshops here, as they will discover and enhance their creativity, make new friends and take home all their own projects.

Day 1 (4 hours) 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Introduction to throwing: We will focus on important steps such as preparing the clay and learning how to centre the clay on the wheel.

Day 2 (3 hours) 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Trimming: Pretty up the pieces by fixing uneven edges, working on the foot and base and more! After this, they'll choose their favourite pieces for bisque firing ready to design and paint their work in the last session.

Day 3 (3 hours) 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Design: Basic ceramic painting, glazing and design techniques. They'll unleash their creativity to decorate and paint their own ceramic bisque pieces ready for Glaze firing.
After the class, the ceramic pieces still need to be glaze fired in a kiln, this makes the ceramics functional and usable. Once the pieces are fired, you will be contacted and able to pick them up from our studio.

We only run this program for a small group of students per class, to ensure plenty of individual attention.
Session repeats

This class series runs over 3 days over the two weeks of the school holidays.
