Workshōpp Ceramics is a unique pottery studio with a focus on small batch production and experimentation. Mixed-level 2 hour casual classes are offered on a weekly schedule and allow you to learn the relaxing art of both hand building and throwing on the pottery wheel. There are 4 week and 8 week courses that run each term, but they sell out quickly.
Learning pottery at Workshopp is a meditative and creative process. Working with clay is fun, but there are no instant results. The practice of pottery depends on drying times, firing the work twice and working over a few weeks to achieve your finished pieces. All our classes and sessions are 2 hours long and it's good to allow 5-7 days in between each lesson. Follow the steps below -
Step 1. HANDBUILDING
We recommend starting with this class to learn the basics of BUILDING by hand. It’s perfectly suited for beginners!

Step 3. TRIM + TURN
If you do a WHEEL class, your next step is to TRIM those pots you made.If you do HANDBUILDING then skip this and book directly into the GLAZE class!
Step 4. GLAZE + DECORATE
Your work is now ready to be GLAZED. You can choose from a wide variety of finishes and colours and everything is included in your class!
