If you're looking for things to do in Sydney or a relaxing new hobby, this pottery class will allow you to unwind and explore a creative community in your area! In this beginner-friendly pottery class, you will make a small planter pot on the pottery wheel and sculpt a charming or quirky ornament.

You will start the class by making a small pot on the pottery wheel following easy step-by-step instructions. Bettina's 'wheelfulness' approach will guide you to embody stillness and presence at the spinning wheel. After experiencing mindfulness at the wheel you will enter the creative world of freely shaping the clay. Bettina will demonstrate how to sculpt simple ornaments and you may also use your imagination to create your very own design. You can choose from a range of ceramic colours to decorate your artwork.

You will leave your planter pot and ornament to be kiln-fired and the completed pieces will be ready for collection two weeks after the class. Your planter pot will be kiln-fired matt and your sculptural ornament will be kiln-fired with a shiny ceramic glaze.

Not only will you finish with a stunning handmade creation to keep for yourself or gift to a loved one, but you'll also take home new creative skills!

5.0 (193)

Bettina offers mindful pottery wheel classes in small groups with no more than 4 students per class, ensuring that each participant receives individual attention and personalized guidance. Building on her background in psychology, her ‘Wheelfulness’ approach goes beyond teaching fundamental skills and incorporates mindfulness to enhance focus and stillness at the spinning wheel.

Besides her passion for pottery, Bettina has been an a professional educator in academia for over 20 years within the fields of cognitive and educational psychology. Her journey with the pottery wheel started as a hobby in 2015 when she discovered that the tactile sensation of clay and the rhythmic movement of the wheel had a soothing effect on her overactive mind. Since then, she has been refining and developing the Wheelfulness approach as a therapeutic modality of working with clay at the pottery wheel. To further her expertise in this area, she is currently pursuing a Certificate in Sensorymotor Art and Clay Field Therapies.
