In this class, which is suitable for beginners, you will make your own ceramic plate and experience the meditative process of creating spirals on the spinning pottery wheel. We will start the class by constructing the plates on the pottery wheel. Then you will decorate your own plate with colorful spiral patterns.

You will have the opportunity to work with a range of ceramic colours so you can customize your own design. You will leave your decorated plate in the studio for glazing and kiln-firing. Your plate will be ready for you to pick up two weeks after the class.

My daughter and I had loads of fun. Bettina was great with both of us. I was initially a little hesitant and with some guidance from Bettina turns out I was pretty ok with what needed to be done.

We are both very happy with our creations. Great idea for a Mum & Daughter occasion and the chance to use those parent vouchers, was a bonus!

This was a perfect class to do with a small group of varying abilities - we had a range from an experienced grandmother to teenagers who were nervous about whether they could make something good. Bettina was welcoming and has a nice studio not far from Chatswood. The class allowed you to have an introduction to the pottery wheel without getting to technical or too messy. Everyone got the chance to practice and then make something unique and beautiful, Bettina helped each one of us depending on what we needed. Looking forward to seeing the plates in a couple of weeks!

Purchased this class as a birthday present for my friend. We both loved the class itself- learning techniques from Bettina and getting creative with shapes and colours. Bettina is patient, friendly and a great teacher. Bettina’s studio is clean, peaceful and was well prepared. I would recommend this class to anyone looking to have a fun and simple pottery class!

The class was so fun! Had a great day with my friends. Bettina is very patient and friendly. Testing the pottery wheel on paper first was a great way to teach us beginners before creating our masterpiece!

What a fabulous experience! I organised this for myself and 3 of my friends and we all really enjoyed it. A very well thought out class, the activity at the beginning gave a great understanding into what techniques we were going to learn.
Bettina was very helpful and knowlegable. It has encouraged us to do more learning into pottery and we were all really impressed with what we could achieve!
Afterwards at lunch we couldn't stop talking about how much fun we had.

Bettina was warm and informative. She was more than helpful and could read the room very well. Her venue is rather qaint and cute. She taught us very well how to make these cute plates. Would love to make them again, maybe to make a set. I would heavily recommend. This class was very calming. We did it as a birthday activity and it was so so cute! Cant wait to see our plates.

This class was so lovely, and really enjoyable. A small group, nice and calm, all genuinely interested, helped by a kind and talented teacher who had a very calm and clear manner of instruction. The small group made for a pleasant environment. The venue was easy to find, with plenty of street parking, and a short walk to cafes for a coffee or bite to eat before or afterwards. Bettina was lovely and very helpful with her advice and guidance. Would definitely recommend.
