About the event

Learn the basics on the pottery wheel from preparing clay, learning to center and glazing your pieces. This is a structured 6 week course, specifically targeted at learning at your pace, clay is not a medium to be rushed it takes time and lots of practice.  You will focus on correct skill development, this class is not about the quantity of pieces you come out with, we focus on quality and learning. You will have instruction from 2 experienced facilitators for the the first 2 classes to get everyone going, the 4 remaing classes will be with just one facilitator. 

Facilitator: Leanne Doble 

Return students will be finessing and extending their skills and will be given direction to extend on skills.

Initial 6 week block  will focus on cylinders, cups/handles and bowls.


New students will be focusing on 

Week 1 - 8th October -  Practice, practice, practice.  We do not keep anything made from this class.

Week 2 - 15th October - Cylinders and more cylinders, because we want to get it right.

Week 3 - 22nd October - Turning feet and adding handles

Week 4 - 29th October - Small bowls

Week 5 - 12th November - Turning bowls and some finessing of previous work

Week 6 - 19th November - Glazing

Please note: no classes 5th November due to Bellarine Arts Trail.

Returning Students projects will extend in the following projects


Lidded Vessels

Larger bowls/vessels/flatware


You will pick 6-8 pieces per class to glaze and fire, we are conscious of our resources and will recycle clay pieces that dont make the cut, so you will need to choose.

With only 8 students per class it is perfect to hone your skills and get the basics right. 

PLEASE BOOK WISELY!  I will be unable to refund any cancellations, you can transfer your ticket to a friend.  To avoid disappointment please do not ask for a refund, please understand that a facilitator is being paid with other outgoings and numbers (your booked spot) is required to keep my little business afloat.

Thanks for understanding.
