I hold pottery workshops in my studio in Kyneton, one hour north of Melbourne.
Handbuilding Ceramics Workshop – Three hours – $150

Over three hours, I’ll step you through some simple hand-building techniques to create some great pottery pieces to take home, such as platters, plates, mugs, oil burners and vases. We’ll also break briefly for a delicious morning/afternoon tea.

This workshop is perfect for beginners, and is an ideal introduction to experimenting with clay and different hand building techniques. You’ll be shown the basic techniques of pinching, coiling and slab building, as well as decorative approaches like impressing, or attaching handles or spouts. You’ll then have time to practise these skills by making your own pieces. After the workshop, I will glaze and fire your pieces and they will be ready for collection from the studio three weeks after the workshop, or I can post to you (postage fee not included).

Workshop class sizes are capped at two people, making for a fun and engaging class. Make a day of it with a friend and grab a meal in beautiful Kyneton and explore the town.

Level: Beginner

Take home: Around three of your favourite pieces.

Session times: Morning (10am–1pm) or Afternoon (2pm–5pm) on Saturdays or Sundays. You can purchase below, and I’ll be in touch via email to arrange your preferred time and date. Or email me at if you have any questions about booking.

Participants: For the time being I am limiting workshops to two people per session. I have hand sanitizer and face masks available.

Price: $150 per person for a three-hour class, which includes access to clay, tools, aprons, glazing and firing. Light morning/afternoon tea will be supplied. These classes are non-refundable. However, you can pass your spot onto a friend instead if you are unable to make it.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
