What are my private class options?

In-Studio Wheel

(You’re welcome to have less than 8 people, however there is a
minimum charge $640)

Our wheel throwing taster is the perfect first step into the world of ceramics.

If you've always wanted to try it out, but aren't sure where to start, this is it.  our taster class is perfect for beginners.

This session is for those who'd like to be laid back and chill - if you're after something more social, Wine and Class Handbuilding is the way to go.

In-Studio Half & Half

People: min 8 - max 24

Duration: 120 mins 


(You’re welcome to have less than 8 people, however there is a
minimum charge $640)

This option is perfect if you have more than 12 people but are still wanting to try your hand at the wheel.

We split your group in 2 and each group gets 1 hour of wheel throwing and 1 hour of handbuilding. You can then choose one piece to have glazed and fired. If you love both pieces, it is $10 for each additional fired piece.

This session is perfect for those wanting to experience the diversity in ceramic techniques in a relaxed, fun setting.

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

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.
