Teacher was awesome, really thoughtful class and very encouraging. Don't be shy if you don't think you're "creative", it's a very safe play zone with really cool outcomes

Easy to find and comfy venue, lovely friendly staff! Drinks and snacks were tasty and plentiful. Very helpful and experienced teachers, plenty of time to make multiple pieces. Examples of what to make and the glaze colours available to help you choose. Super enjoyable and a fun, relaxing way to spend 3 hours.

We had a great time, lovely way to spend an afternoon. Can’t wait to see my pieces glazed and ready to use!

A super fun activity with friends, family or just by yourself. All the staff are lovely and welcoming. You get to make three pieces and have choice of colour/design. The freedom was amazing. Daisy really encouraged any creative design you wanted to achieve. Would recommend.

My friend and I had a fantastic experience yesterday at the 3 hour handbuilding workshop. Daisy the teacher was clear in providing technique instructions and was on hand the whole class to help when we got stuck. The location was very convenient and a relaxed atmosphere to get the creative juices flowing. Afternoon tea was delicious! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about handbuilding, a very relaxing form of pottery !

Daisy and Bec were fantastic. Daisy was an amazing teacher and the class was awesome. There was a great demonstration of all hand clay building techniques and plenty of time to build quality and quantity of pieces. Also fab coffee/tea and a break in the middle with a great charcuterie spread. Had a really brilliant time.

This was my first ever art/drawing class. The venue was well lit and had a relaxed vibe. All the drawing paper and pencils/charcoal/pastels were supplied which made it experimenting with different mediums easy for all. The teacher was welcoming and gave small tips as we moved through the model's poses.

We really enjoyed the stoneware workshop with Daisy. She explained the techniques really well so we were able to quickly start creating pieces that we are really happy with. The three hour workshop is the perfect length of time to learn some new skills, create a few pieces and have a chat. Loved it!

Best ceramics class I’ve ever done. Daisy provided a fast but comprehensive introduction. Bel and Daisy were great hosts and the nibbles and drinks were lovely.

Before class think about some ideas of what you want to make.
Have short nails. Very enjoyable class and would highly recommend.
Looking forward to seeing the finished pieces!

I've done a few little one day creative work shops and this was one of my favourites. The teacher(s) were friendly and helpful, the venue was big and spacious, and everything was provided (including snacks and hot drinks). My friend and I had a great time and we were both thrilled with the final pieces we made. Worth noting that you have to leave your finished pieces with instructions on what colour glaze you want as the clay has dry before being fired, so you might have to wait a few weeks to see the finished product. All in all, a great little workshop.

Great venue. Comfortable sofa sitting area and very spacious working area. Daisy & staff are very helpful and friendly. A cheese platter, tarts and choices of refreshments make it 3 hours well spent.

I found the class most enjoyable and therapeutic!
Thank you ladies, you make a great team.

Alena Hermanns Aug 2022


Daisy was a great teacher! She made it look so easy and effortless but maybe just that bit too easy as I went in with high ambitions of making a heart shaped mug. It took me more than half of the class time to finish this piece as I completely forgot about the time and started panicking when I realised how much time I had spent on it. I did manage to finish two pieces and I’m quite happy with them! Now just hoping they survive the kiln! The space was beautiful we were offered coffee, water and some snacks which I didn’t had the time to try thanks to me being too over ambitious with the mug but it looked great. I’m already thinking of doing it again as now I know what not to do and I need a fitting mug for my bowl. (My heart shaped mug ended up becoming a rather large heart shaped bowl) I had a good time and will definitely try it again!

Daisy is a lovely and supportive ceramics teacher - she was really generous with sharing her knowledge with us and in assisting us to create our very own unique ceramic pieces. We felt very supported in a warm and friendly environment despite the range of experience levels (complete beginner to more seasoned potters) in the class. The workshop was also housed in a lovely warehouse in Prahran and we were very well taken care of by The Windsor Workshop team during our time there. Overall, highly recommend this stoneware ceramics workshop with Daisy - we had a wonderful experience and the workshop is also great value for money as you get to take home three handmade ceramic pieces.

Jo Aug 2022


The venue was cute, plenty of clay to practice the techniques however, not much time to really nibbles and drink.
Overall, great experience

We had a great time! Daisy and Belle were both so hospitable and friendly; the space was warm and welcoming too. While the class was a short and sweet one, Daisy was able to demonstrate and teach multiple hand-form techniques in that time. She also came over to each person to help out along the way. The snack + drink selection was great aswell - overall, it was a fantastic class

Daisy was amazing, very helpful and knowledgeable. Venue was really good, enjoyed the beverages and snacks that were provided

Fiona Coles May 2021


Venue was a modern space. Good location with access to train/trams. Belinda and Daisy were lovely. Course instructions and time allowed to create was adequate. Daisy was helpful walking the room to advise on work.

Negativeworkspace was too small, we sat shoulder to shoulder in a U-shape like a seminar. Not only was this not Covid-safe, and it was restrictive to creating. It was easy to move a tool or cloth and bump your classmates work. The space itself was large enough for more tables and even high tables for those who wanted to stand. Food and alcohol was offered, which was nice but it was not clearly advised in advance that it would be included but explains why the course price was a little high.

I enjoyed it, but rushed my work and left early as I felt squashed in and not creative. There weren't sufficient water tubs on the table.

I appreciate the time and effort of all, to make this event happen and I am looking forward to seeing my glazed pieces.

The class was really fun and engaging! Libby was a great teacher and came around to help us individually and give close up demonstrations which was really helpful. The venue was a lovely space to work in and all the little bits and pieces we were given were very helpful. It was a really fun morning, thanks!
