Why Clay and Sip Is the New Friday Night Drinks

If you'd love to shake up your usual Friday night routine and try something quirky and creative for a change, why don’t you sign up for pottery classes in Australia? Learning the art of wheel throwing is quickly becoming one of the most popular evening activities in Australia and for good reason. Signing up for pottery classes gives people the chance to try something new, discover unique ways to channel their creativity and meet other like-minded folks at the same time. Add in a bottle of wine or two, and you’re all set for a fun-filled Friday night with a difference!

Keen to try a ceramics class for yourself and see what all the fuss is about? There are so many reasons why taking a clay and sip workshop is an inspiring replacement for a night of cocktails and wine bars. Here are just a few of the benefits of trading in a pub crawl or a bar-hopping session for a couple of hours of sipping wine and throwing clay!


Pottery workshops are a fun way to spend quality time with your best mates

If your social life has taken a bit of a nosedive over the last couple of years – and, let’s face it, who hasn’t? – then signing up a few of your closest friends for a pottery course at a local ceramic studio is a great way to reconnect. You can share giggles and gossip while practising your wheel throwing techniques and give each other moral support as you learn how to create your very own clay masterpieces under the watchful eye of your friendly and experienced teacher.

Signing up for a clay and sip session, where you get to sip wine or your favourite cocktail while you pick up some pottery techniques, adds an extra element of fun and relaxation that you and your mates are sure to appreciate.

Whether you live in Canberra, Adelaide or Melbourne, it won’t be hard to find a laidback and inspiring pottery course for you and your friends to enjoy together. Before long, you’ll be swapping stories, laughing and joking just like you used to, while you learn how to pinch, coil and sculpt your clay into unique works of art that will be glazed and fired for you to take home and proudly display.
