PROFILE

Having studied art therapy my philosophy on teaching pottery is that it should be fun and easy so you can expect lots of humour and laughter at one of my sessions.

I've been teaching pottery for more than a decade and have had television appearances on both Channels 7 & 9.

I'm a member of the acclaimed Bundeena Maianbar Art Trail which features many well known artists including Archibald winners.

Really fun class, this was the first time I had ever 'thrown' clay and Marion was really helpful, easy-going, instructive and generally a great teacher to have. She was very happy to show us the pieces she had made as well and tell us their story. It's a great location for a full day out, the Royal National Park is a beautiful setting for this little village of Bundeena and it's easy to take time to go for a hike or appreciate the views on the way. We're really excited to see our finished pieces and have already recommended this workshop to friends.

We had such a lovely time making our teapots. The class size was small enough to feel like you were getting 1 on 1 care. Beautful outdoor venue and lovely teacher. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I enjoyed the pottery class . We had done the class for the first time. I am very glad that I did the class as I was always fascinated by how a pot is made.

This was such a fun afternoon of mindfulness and learning! Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn more about the art of pottery wheel throwing. The location is also beautiful, so get there early and go for lunch

Marion is a fantastic teacher! From not having any experience in wheel throwing, we managed to whip up 3 pieces in such a short time with her guidance. A really enjoyable class in a beautiful location. Thank you Marion!

Marion made the workshop fun and enjoyable. After workshop, went out for a walk to the wedding cake rock. Bundeena is a bear place to spend the short vacation.

This class was great! Teacher was lovely, and the small class with a wheel each made the lesson really worthwhile.

We really enjoyed our lesson, this was the first time we had tried using clay on a pottery wheel and had a really good time and made three pieces each.
5

• Jan 2019


This was a great class! Marion is kind and hands-on. Giving you creative control but, assisting you when needed so that the end result is 10/10!

Would definitely recommend!

Mary explained the throwing technique well and was very helpful throughout the class. It was challenging at first but the atmosphere was relaxed and we had a great time using the pottery wheel to make 3 pieces! I can't wait to use them after they've been fired and glazed.

Two other friends and I booked a class, not really knowing how difficult it would be but it was so enjoyable for all of us. We made three things and learnt a lot in terms of techniques too. Our teacher was extremely friendly and helpful in guiding us. Overall a wonderful introduction to pottery. For a bonus, Bundeena is a beautiful place too! Definitely worth making the trip down. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

My partner booked this for us to do together as a Christmas gift and we both thoroughly enjoyed our experience. All materials were provided and teacher demonstrated what we were doing and then was there to guide and help when needed. We made 3 different pieces each which I can’t wait to collect soon ! Would highly recommend as a gift or if you’re wanting to just try something new.

11/10. Marion was lovely. She even waited to start after we rang to say we’d be late. She keeps her class sizes small (~4-5, ours was 3) which is great; you get to know everyone and can actually have a chat. She let us pick any design, and eloped is through it even if they were outlandish. She also doesn’t rush you which is nice. It was very relaxing. Marion first showed us what to do, then let us do the rest of it ourselves, step by step. About 2.5 hours of fun, education, and relaxation - totally worth it. You even get a teapot out of it!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

I loved this class! The teacher was wonderful, it was easier than I thought, it was a fun and relaxing way to spend a morning. Can’t wait to see the finished product!
5

• Jan 2019


This class was a fantastic way to spend a few hours - great value for money as you get to make 3 pieces that you can keep from the class. The environment was very casual, fun and not at all intimidating, a great atmosphere to learn pottery. All the materials used were of high quality.

A very lovely experience :) Teacher is very helpful and willing to help completing my crazy design. Definitely will go again.

What a great day! Even for absolute begginers to pottery it’s so much fun, and you have 3 pieces to craft. Overall it’s a wonderful day in a beautiful area.

My sister and I attended this class on the weekend and we had the best time. The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and I now really want to do the teapot class. We ended up with two bowls and a cup. Plus it’s in bundeena which is a beautiful location.

Marion was great to work with and really fun to talk to. Had a great time with the other students making our teapots. I made mine as a gift to a friend and really looking forward to how it turns out. Marion was super helpful with shipping to my friend since I live abroad. Definitely recommended. I had not done much pottery before attending and I think it turned out pretty well. I had a lovely hike and swim around Bundeena afterwards so it was great to make a day of it. Can't recommend more :)

Marianne was a great friendly teacher and very patient with us. Bundeena was beautiful and we went for a swim and a bush walk after the class. The pots turn out amazing even with not slot of skill at all.

Marion was a great and helpful instructor. We made a teapot and they all turned out fantastic.
It was a wonderful day and highly recommended. I am going to go back for the wheel throwing next time. Tks Marion

Mary was more that welcoming and patient with the class.
Would recommend this to anyone whether you're into it or not. The whole experience is fun, entertaining and you walk away with something you have made from a ball of clay.

Very efficient - the three hours passed very quickly and Marian was happy to oblige my quirky artistic temperament with professionalism.

Easy to find. Don’t need a thing, you simply turn up. The teacher was clear and demonstrated each step. I started knowing nothing and then before long I was shaping my bowl and seeing it take shape . Can’t wait to see it glazed. Worth doing !

We attended the Make Your Own Teapot. It was a lot of fun and can't believe we managed to complete our own pot in such a short amount of time. Marion was very knowledgeable, she helped us make our vision for our teapot by suggesting different ways to do things.
Our 8 year old was extremely please with her creation and can't wait to get them back.
Marion is such a pleasant teacher, it is definitely worth the money you pay for :)

Mary was patient and lovely. A group of four of us did the class together and we all loved it and were rather pleasantly surprised at the end outcomes! We're excited to get the finished products in a few weeks and now want to do more activities like this together!

The teacher was great! She was funny, insightful and passionate about pottery. Also very patient with us! The studio for the class was very cosy. We really enjoyed ourselves! We managed to make 2 bowls and 1 cup each and are awaiting for them to be glazed :)

Marion was a great instructor. The class was very hands on and practical. Marion helped us at every single step to make sure we both left with successful products. She was engaging and funny. She was very patient too. Overall, the class is great! Highly recommended. The only one is that we still haven’t been contacted on when we will receive our products by the post.:(

The teacher was really sweet and made sure that all of us were able to walk away with teapots that were not only what we wanted but also practical. It was nice and warm inside the studio (a good winter activity!) and the class was not too big so the teacher was able to come around to each of us to help us.

The pottery class with teacher Marion was great! I had such a wonderful time with her and we could make three potteries which was awesome. She is very skillful and helped me very patiently since it was my firs time on making art but definitely not my last one. I strongly suggest everyone who are interested to join. You wont regret.

Really fun! We didnt know anything about pottery and made some fun designs. The teacher was great at giving us ideas at what was possible and what doesnt work so well, then let us make our own design.
The pace was great- not too fast not too slow. The price is high compared to the movies or dinner, but there is painting and firing that happens after you finish so take that into account. Its a great special occasion or occasional activity.
Nice little garage full of pottery to look at and copy, and i got a cup of tea included which was nice.
I would defs go back again

Mary-an was a really patient and informative. She was also very generous and made us feel right at home! Making the teapot was also really fun and therapeutic. The studio is also very close to the beach.
