Teen Pottery Wheel Holiday Class

Learn how to use the pottery wheel for teenagers



2 hours Class size 1 to 4     label $75

Looking for fun things to do in Sydney for teenagers? Come and learn how to use the pottery wheel in this fun and relaxing holiday class!

This pottery class in Sydney is designed for teenagers and conducted in a small group (max four students), allowing the teacher to attend to the learning needs of everyone. The class is suitable for beginners and also for students with existing experience on the pottery wheel.

Working on the pottery wheel requires steady hands and a focused mind. The wheelfulness approach to pottery integrates the psychology of mindfulness and introduces students to the essential skills and mindset that will help them control and form the clay on the spinning wheel.

Teens will be guided to create various shapes of their choice and two of their pots (per participants) will be glazed and kiln-fired. Kiln-fired pieces can be collected approximately two weeks after the class.

Please note: Teens can stay for the full day (i.e., 10am-3pm) if they book both the morning (10am-12pm) and the afternoon (1pm-3pm) sessions. In that case, please make sure that they bring their own lunch.

My memory of working with clay reaches back to my childhood, when I first attended a pottery course. My teachers encouraged me to go to art school, however I have pursued a different career. I studied psychology, completed a PhD, and have become a university lecturer. I have been a sessional academic since 2003 and throughout the years I have taught various subjects in the areas of cognition, neuroscience, and educational psychology.

It was in 2015 that I found my way back to clay and started to embark on my creative adventures. I have coined the term 'Wheelfulness' to connect the practice of working on the pottery wheel with the psychology of mindfulness. In my Wheelfulness classes, I encourage students to reflect on how their ability to master the clay is enhanced by positive mindset and repeated practice. I believe that this ‘wheelful' approach not only helps students become better potters but benefits other aspects of their life.
