The
 Clay Room @ CCC is an exciting new creative space for pottery - check out the website www.theclayroom.org.au

Opened in February 2018, The Clay Room offers classes and workshops for beginners to experienced potters - for adults, secondary and primary aged students.

Meet our highly experienced craftspeople who offer expert tuition in hand building and wheel throwing. 
Classes include the provision of all equipment and kiln firing.

Learn pottery creation techniques to make wheel or hand built ceramics and earthenware clay work in a relaxed, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. 

Wheel-throwning
pottery classes involve using the potter's wheel to make objects. Learn how to properly use a potter's wheel, the correct amount of water to use to keep the clay pliable and how to keep the wheel turning at a steady rate.

Hand-building
 pottery classes allow you to make everything from sculpture, including figurative and abstract forms to functional objects like bowls, cups, platters and tiles, without the use of a potter's wheel.

Choose from a number of Wheel Throwing & Hand Building pottery classes available below.
