Pottery classes at the ceramic house
The Ceramic House is an open learning space for clay workers of all levels; from those who have not yet experienced the delight of clay, to a wizard on the wheel. Our studio is for everyone.
HOW IT WORKS
All session can be purchased and booked online or via our booking app. Our session packs are applicable to all sessions during the week, excluding Sunday Workshops or Masterclasses. Our variation of studio sessions go as such;
- Guided Studio Session - Where a clay tutor is there to guide you and help you expand your technique. Introductory students are welcome to any of these sessions to start their clay journey!
- Glazing Session - As there is a lot of prep work going into creating and prepping the glazes, students are only able to glaze their work during these sessions.
- Advanced Throwing Sessions - If you are an advanced student and would like to broaden your skill set on the wheel, Friday sessions we delve into more complex vessels and techniques.
- Unguided Studio Sessions - These sessions can also be bought with any pack, however go for the entirety of the morning (5.5 hours) allowing more advanced students freedom and time for independent working. This sessions is not for Introductory Students.
** If you are new to our studio, please ensure you book in for your Introductory Class during one of the 'Guided Studio Session Times'. You are free to purchase either a one off 'Introductory Class' or purchase a 4 pack or 10 pack of classes, in which your first booked class counts as the Introductory class. Please note the One Class for $55 is an add on class, not an Introductory Class.
Alternatively we also host Learn to Throw! Intensive Workshops on Sunday's. The all day workshop equips students with the basic skills of using the pottery wheel and includes all materials, clay, coffee / tea and a delicious lunch!
There are 10 throwing spaces and 12 hand building spaces available per session.
One Off Class - $ 55
4 Session Pack - $ 200
10 Session Pack - $ 450
Learn to Throw! Intensive Workshop - $160
Clay and firings are at an additional cost. Firings are charged per weight at $7 a kilo. Clay may be purchased by the bag from the Clay Bar, onsite at The Ceramic House. We have a full bags (10-12.5Kg) for $20 and half bags for $10. All other tools, glazes and facilities are free to students.
While The Ceramic House has glazing and firing facilities on-site, we advise booking a multiple class pass if you would like to take home a finished piece. Ceramics is a process oriented craft, and every piece must undergo certain drying times and firing processes to be completed.
Please be aware that 24 hours notice is required for cancellation of booked sessions.
