Looking for fun kids activities these Perth school holidays? Explore the beautiful art of pottery during this fun, creative and slightly messy workshop.

Presented by Not Yet Perfect in the beautiful, light-filled, Heathcote ceramics studio, kids will discover how pottery is created from start to finish.

During this relaxing workshop, kids can expect to learn a complete set of wheel working skills, including:

  • The basics of using the pottery wheel
  • Preparing the clay before turning on the wheel
  • Centering the clay on the wheel
  • How to create different shapes on the wheel

No prior experience necessary and beginners are very welcome! All materials are provided, so kids just need to come along with an open mind and be ready to get their hands dirty.

Please note: Ceramic pieces will be ready a maximum of eight weeks max after the workshop and you will be notified via text.

The girls really enjoyed it and look forward to collecting their fired pieces. I stayed for a bit to make sure they were comfortable (as a bit nervous) and the instructor was lovely and was patient. The girls settled in quickly
