Private Classes

Join us for your work event or gather for a birthday celebration to remember!

Here at Clay Wollongong, we pride ourselves on helping you host events that bring people together, learn new skills, and above all, have fun.

Our Wollongong studio has the capacity for intimate workshops of 8 or more, through to energetic sessions of up to 40 people.

For off site events, we’ve previously taught 150 attendees, and are very happy to go bigger - just tell us where and when.

Our clients have included such brands as Google, Domain, Foxtel, Ernst & Young, and Channel 9.

By far our most popular class is our Wine and Clay sessions, and you can probably guess why... cheers!

In this two hour session, you’ll socialise, enjoy BYO nibbles and drinkies, and perfect your very own ceramic creation under the guiding hand of our expert handbuilding tutors. It’s fun, social, and everyone makes something!

We focus on form and texture make your vessel; be it a vase, a planter, a mug, or something all you.

Of course, if you’d prefer not to bring wine, that’s fine too! We can be as family-friendly (or not) as you need.

The beauty of our handbuilding sessions is they can be infinitely scaled up. As long as you’ve got a surface to work on, we’ll bring everything else you’ll need.
