Enrol for a six-week term of pottery classes where award-winning ceramic artist Frances Smith will guide you through the fun and creativity of making pottery.

In small classes of just four people, Fran will give you individual attention to help you create functional pots or pieces of ceramic art.

Who is this class for?

Whether you are a beginner or have some experience, Fran will guide you through the next steps to make creative and practical works from clay.

Over the six-week course, Frances will take newcomers through the pottery process from forming a shape from wet clay, drying it and then turning the leather-hard clay ready for the first bisque kiln firing. Then she’ll show you how to decorate your piece with colourful glazes, and finally, Fran will load the kiln and fire your works.

What do you need to bring?

We will supply you all the pottery tools you will need, as well as an apron and a work towel. Just bring yourself and your ticket (which we will send to you when you have enrolled).

You will have up to 10 kilograms of clay which is fired in our kilns each term. We also supply our standard glazes for your use during the class. Additional clay, glazes and kiln use can be purchased if needed.

We have six terms of six classes per year. If you miss a class, we have provided a seventh week to each term where you can make up the missed day. Missed days in one term cannot be rolled over into another term.
