How to use the pottery wheel, sculpting and ceramic painting

This one-and-a-half-hour pottery experience is conducted in small groups (four students per teacher) encouraging mindful learning and creative exploration.

The class is suitable for 7 to 12-year-old children and includes a bundle of pottery activities, such as the pottery wheel, sculpting, and ceramic painting.

Each child will spend some time at the pottery wheel and will be assisted by the teacher to create a shape of their choice. The young artists will also experiment with freely forming the clay to sculpt different objects and will have the opportunity to decorate their work with colourful ceramic paints.

By the end of the class, each child will make a colourful trinket dish with small ornaments of their choice. Children will leave their artwork for glazing and kiln-firing (included in the price) and the finished pieces will be ready for collection two weeks after the class.

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.
