Looking for pottery classes in Melbourne? This Mornington-based pottery workshop focuses on a unique form of Japanese pottery called Raku.

You will spend the day at friendly Oak Hill Community Gallery, a not-for-profit organisation that gives access to affordable art. At this special Japanese pottery class, you will focus on the act of firing and will learn all about this fascinating form of pottery.
