Practice your pottery and ceramic skills at our open studio classes in Melbourne! You will be free to work on your own pottery projects which you can take home once completed.

Our open studio class is the ideal opportunity if you have completed one of our ceramics courses or if you have previous experience working with clay.

During this fun and relaxed time, there will be no teachers. This is a self-directed session that allows you to work on your own pottery projects. All materials and tools are provided in our fully equipped studio, including the use of wheels, bench space, hand-building space, banding wheels, slab roller, plaster bats for reclaiming clay, newspaper/plastic to cover your work, aprons and 2 kilograms of reclaimed clay.

As part of our pottery open studio classes, you will have access to storage space for your work, before and for two weeks after firing your projects. If you are looking for cool things to do in Melbourne, this experience offers the perfect opportunity to play, experiment and practice the skills you learnt in previous courses.
