This beginner pottery wheel throwing workshop is perfect for your kids if you are looking for activities that keep them busy during the school holidays in Sydney.

During this four-session course, the kids will learn how to throw on the pottery wheel with the guidance of our friendly teacher all in a relaxed creative space for a fun learning experience, where all materials are provided. Every session covers a topic so the kids will follow easily the steps-by-steps to finally take home their two favourite projects.

Day 1
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
Throwing on the wheel: We will learn the three most important steps, clay preparation, centring and pulling and shaping.

Day 3
Pretty up the pieces by fixing uneven edges, working on the foot and base and more! After this, your kid's two favourite pieces are ready for bisque firing before we can design and paint their work.

Day 4
Basic ceramic painting and design techniques: Kids will unleash their creativity to decorate and paint their own ceramic bisque pieces.

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 able to pick them up from our studio two weeks after.

We only have six students per class, to ensure plenty of individual attention. Keep your kids busy and entertained during the school holidays with an experience filled with new friends, imagination, creative education and craft fun!
