Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



The teacher was fantastic and very patient. A beautiful studio with all the materials you need. I learnt to make a cup from kneeding the clay, using the wheel, finishing and glazing. I am going to continue on with pottery at this studio.

Clay and Sip Class: Pots and Wine



We had a ball with this class. Who would have thought we could carve out some amazing pottery skill out of software engineers. The teacher had a nice touch to give us the instructions and then let us get creative with her gentle guidance. Logistics worked well and would highly recommend for a team building exercise.

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



Good introduction to creating pottery using the wheel, trimming and application of glazes. Teacher was attentive and helpful without taking over the process.

Nerikomi Pottery Masterclass



Absolutely loved the Nerikomi masterclass at SilkyShapes I booked this to do with a friend and we both enjoyed it immensely. Yegana showed us the entire process and some beautiful pattern making techniques before letting us embark on our own Nerikomi adventures. Yegana was patient and full of knowledge that was willingly shared and never rushed us through, she even let us stay back another half hour  + more

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



The class was comprehensive and the teacher very helpful and supportive. The venue is not air conditioned so was hot and noisy due to traffic sounds from the opened window that together with need to wear masks due to COVID made listening difficult

Clay and Sip Class: Pots and Wine



Yegana was and excellent teacher. She was patient and if she couldn’t correct a mistake, she was very quick to let you know you could start over without any concern for the materials. I appreciated the freedom to select patterns and paints and the care the teacher took in making sure she had it correct. Nicole was super helpful as well. She had some good tips and eager to please.

Great value for money. Got straight into it without unnecessary details. I'm often frustrated with the slow pace of beginners classes but this one was perfect.

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



Our teacher is quite friendly and patient! Always remind me put down ur elbows hahahahha. And the venue is good as well. Not a big place but be very organised. The first class to make three bowl like potteries, for me is not easy but is a great beginning!


Emily Crews Apr 2019

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



The teacher was very patient, accommodating and encouraging. The space was relaxed and had the right tools which meant we were able to focus on getting into the actual pottery lesson. I'd definitely recommend to other friends and am looking forward to continuing on with my bowl making!

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



It has been really fun, working with the clay was not my second nature but thr teacher has been extremly patient. The venue is a walking distance from home, spacious and relaxing. I am looking forward to next two classes and see the final products.

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



Yegana was very attentive and accommodating. Her instructions were very clear and at a good pace to follow. This was also combined with visual demonstrations which accommodated all types of learners. The venue is convenient and close to public transport. The materials were good and easy to work with and all tools were provided. The class was very informative and good length for weekly consecutive sessions. I learned a lot and it was a great crash course. I learned enough to take away and refine my skills with practice. The class size was small  + more

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



Fun class and great atmosphere and vibe. As a beginner I probably needed a little more hands on coaching as I found it quite difficult but I'm sure with more practice I'll get there.

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



It was my first time doing pottery and it’s a really good experience. I loved it the way my teacher ( Jioana) explained the each steps from the starting. I still need to learn more which can only gain by experience and more practice. I definitely recommend my friends to try upcoming class sessions.


Tamara Yap Feb 2019

Beginner's Wheel Throwing Pottery Course



Just did the first class of three, the teacher was excellent. She provided clear instructions and demonstrations for each step of the process, and gave us plenty of room to practice but was quick to step in as soon as anyone needed help. Highly recommended.

Lovely little venue. Yegana?( sorry not sure how to spell her name) is an absolutely lovely instructor- she caters for all abilities and makes sure that everyone is on the same page. Very patient and great materials to work with. Loved how everything was included and easy to follow. I'm very happy with the end result and had an absolute blast, would definitely come again. Can't recommend this course  + more

Had a ceramic's painting class for a Hen's Night. Yegana was so welcoming and helpful. She provided a space for us to set up nibblies and drinks early, explained the painting and glazing process and then let us get to work. We all had such a wonderful time. The venue was easy to find. The Bride enjoyed the class immensely. Top quality.

Nice studio with a small group of beginners enabling the instructor to provide regular support & technique advice. The studio was being used by a nice number of others who were at differing stages of experience adding to a nice vibe. Instructor has a lovely manner about her, provides great instructions, guidance & assistance.
