Pottery Wheel Time Clifton Beach – Cairns

Pottery Wheel Time


Pottery Wheel Time is for those who have already completed the Beginners Learn to Throw Pottery Classes and would like to continue making pottery. If you have not completed the Beginners Class please click here for more information and to book a beginners class.

Wheel Time is for either time on the Pottery Wheel or time in the Studio only – it does not include any materials or tutorials or instruction.  You are free to hop on a wheel and create whatever you like, or spend time in the studio trimming, hand building or glazing your pots.  All Pottery wheels, tools and equipment must be left clean.

When: Book NOW! Click on a Wheel Time session (green) in calendar at bottom of page to reserve a wheel.

Where: Home based studio (garage) 39b Clifton Road, Clifton Beach QLD 4879 – House in Middle

Wheel Time Cost: $30 per 3hr Wheel Time session.  Price includes use of all tools and use of a pottery wheel.  It does not include the cost of clay or firings. (see additional prices below).

What to Bring:

  • Apron
  • Towel
  • Bucket or lidded container (ice cream container good) to take your slops home if you would like to recycle your own clay.
  • Styrofoam box – If you can get one.  I have a few available here but if you can get one please bring in, these are handy to store your pieces in between classes & stops them drying out too fast.  Mark with your name.

Additional Costs

Clay: $40 per full bag or $20 per half bag.  You will need to take your clay home with you at the end of each session & remember to bring it back again next time.  Please also bring a lidded container or lidded bucket to take your leftover (slops) of clay home – if you would like to recycle your own clay at home.  Any clay left in the studio will be discarded or recycled for studio use.  Please Note: you are welcome to purchase your own clay elsewhere, however only Midfire Cone 6 clay will be fired in our kiln. If you have purchased your own clay elsewhere I will need to inspect the bag to see if it is suitable to be fired in our kiln. Other clays will not be fired.


Firings & Glazes: $2.50 per firing.  Eg. your pot will need to be fired twice, so $2.50 for the bisque fire PLUS $2.50 for the glaze fire = $5.00 per completed pot. Cover your pot in whichever glaze you like, glazes are included in the firing costs.
