Our Core Programmes

Pottery Trial Class

Have a go on the potter's wheel and learn to create simple tableware such as a cup, a saucer or a cereal bowl. A therapeutic creative activity, our trial classes are structured to minimise instructor's assistance and encourage personal exploration and expression.

Pottery Fundamentals for Beginners 

A four weeks course that serves to contextualize the basics of pottery-making through hand-building and glazing techniques. This is recommended for those who wish to work as an independent potter in the long-run.


Speciality Workshops (NEW!)


Opening up great potential for creative expressions, mold-making is an essential technology often employed in industrial production for making multiples. This two-part workshop offers an introduction to the world of mold-making and slip-casting for the absolute beginner.
