Melbourne Clay has a designed a 4 week wheel throwing introductory class specifically for parents and teens.

“It gets harder to find activities share with your children when they hit their teens. They are way ‘Too cool for school’. This is a great opportunity for you to spend some creative time with while learning something new yourself.”

All of Melbourne Clay’s classes are designed to cater for beginners with no previous experience, however if you have thrown before they can run you through a refresher, allowing you to progress at a more rapid pace. You will learn to throw simple shapes off the wheel and then how to trim and glaze them. By the end of this course you will have your own hand made vessels (typically cups and/or bowls) to take home. The classes are kept small with places limited to 12 people per class, so you will have lots of one on one tuition. The course fee includes the tool kits, clay, glazes and 1kg of firing. Students are asked to bring a towel, apron and a willing pair of hands to each class, everything else you need is provided.

Please note, teens must be 11 years old or older must be accompanied by an adult. Maximum of 2 children per adult.

About

Melbourne Clay (formally Mercator Ceramics School) was founded by Ilona Topolcsanyi and Colin Hopkins in 2009.  All of the people who teach with Melbourne Clay have their own unique approach to “making”, based on many years of knowledge and experience.

Their learning studios have quickly grown into a much-visited creative hub, where there is always a wheel spinning, a kiln roaring, a glaze being splashed onto a hungry pot or a class full of enthusiastic students, laughing their way towards mastery.
