In light of the government regulations as of 31st Jan, we will require proof of vaccination from all class participants over the age of 16.

A Day on the Wheel Pottery Workshop is held at Not Yet Perfect Studio at Heathcote Cultural Precinct in Applecross. We welcome individuals to come and learn a new skill, and further develop existing ones during this full-day creative experience.

Wheel throwing is a beautiful, slow and mindful artistic practise. It requires a level of detail and an understanding of a number of elements for your ceramic pieces to come out looking desirable and being functional.

This class is suitable for the absolute beginner to the more advanced potter. There are no previous skills required, simply bring your authentic self.

This workshop covers the basics of working in a pottery studio, how to create ceramics on the wheel, trimming your ceramic pieces, and a brief overview of the glazing process.

You’ll gain knowledge on working with different clay bodies, and the processes required to prepare your clay for throwing on the wheel. By the end of this day course, you would have journeyed through from the design stage, to final product.

The course is fun and experimental, whilst being practical and foundational for those looking to learn more and further develop their pottery skills.

Blair Tredwell Jun 2021


Teacher was Informative, very easy to talk to and watch while demonstrating. The venue is a lovely heritage listed building. All materials are there and supplied, well worth the time and money just to get out of your own brain and into your body. You might even surprise yourself, making something timeless and or fall in love with the art.

Can’t wait to do my next class, thank you so much, see you soon.

The teacher is so friendly and I like her approach on teaching. She speaks so calmly and I can see that she loves her art. The venue is clean and net, the area is very beautiful. Lunch was superb with a nice view of the river. The teacher inspired me to re connect with my art and I will surely come back to do it again.
