  • <An Introduction to Throwing on the Potter's Wheel> is now renamed as < Wheel Throwing Foundations> . While this is a beginners' course, it is targetted at students with prior experience working with clay and wish to learn how to throw and turn effectively on the potter's wheel. This is a demanding and fast-paced course.   Our next course is scheduled on 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th Oct. Sundays. 2PM - 5PM *min 3pax to start a class 
  • Due to the limited studio capacity and the continued need ensure sufficient distance between each participant, we have phased out our <1 Hour Pinchpottery for 2 pax>. Thank you for the understanding. Stay healthy and be safe. 
  • All our classes are NOT SkillsFuture claimable. 


School of Clay Arts is a Singapore-based ceramic studio specialising in pottery classes for beginners.

Dedicated to stimulating critical and creative applications of craft and material knowledge, we hope our programmes and approaches would prove to be a provoking, productive basis to all who share our interest in analog processes and the future of skills-based work.
