Wheel Time

Wheel Time


Pottery Wheel Time or Studio Time is for those who have already completed the 4 Beginners Learn to Throw Pottery Classes and would like to continue making pottery. If you have not completed 4 Beginner Classes please click here for more information and to book a beginners class.

Wheel Time bookings are for either time on the Pottery Wheel or time in the Studio only – it does not include the cost of clay 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.

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

Wheel Time / Studio Time Cost: $30 per 3hr Studio session + PLUS CLAY + FIRINGS (see additional prices below).



  • PLEASE DON’T COME TOO EARLY. No more than 5 mins before a session starts please.
  • PLEASE DRIVE ALL THE WAY AROUND THE TURNING CIRCLE & PARK ON OUR DRIVEWAY IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE. Please don’t drive straight in and stop midway, other cars can’t fit behind you if you stop short and then their car blocks the entry. If there is space in front of the garage you can park there, but if two cars are there already, don’t stop behind them, please continue around the turning circle and park on the driveway in front of our house. If you need to leave early, please park out on the street and walk down so we don’t have to shuffle cars around.

Currently we can’t park on the grassy area in back yard like map shows below, we are in the process of getting a new gate so once we get it you will be able to park out the back on the grass area. In the meantime please be thoughtful of others when you park.

  • Please remember to bring your own APRON & TOWEL. With a few changes to the timetable and more sessions now available every week, wheel time sessions mostly come straight after beginner sessions so there WONT be any aprons or towels available for Wheel Time or Studio Time sessions anymore.  Aprons & Towels are reserved for beginner classes only.
  • Please bring a LIDDED CONTAINER if you would like to reclaim your own clay.
  • At the end of each session please CLEAN your wheel & tools & put the tool and water buckets back in place on the table in front of your wheel, the way they are when you start (not on the shelf).
  • Please make sure to PUT YOUR CLAY AWAY or take it home.
  • At the end of your session you need to COVER YOUR OWN POTS and put them away or take them home with you in your own box.
  • If you have trouble covering your pots, you need to put them in a Styrofoam container or bring a big box with newspaper for lining or cushioning if you’re taking home with you.
  • Please DON’T use the round bats to store your pots on, these are for throwing large pots only. Large pots can stay on the round bats but only if absolutely essential and only if you really can’t move them, otherwise they need to be transferred into your box or onto the timber rectangle boards so they fit on the shelf. If you cant find space on the shelf you will need to take your pots home with you and bring back next session.
  • BRING A BOX to take any completed pieces or work in progress home with you.
  • DOGS – I love dogs and happy for you to bring your dog along to class – However – Dog owners please be considerate of other potters. Please be mindful of dogs pushing past others feet, squeezing under chairs & tables when others are trying to throw, tripping on leads, jumping up or knocking pots. Its a tight space and we need to be considerate of everyone. If you’re uncomfortable around dogs or would prefer to come to a PET FREE session, please let me know.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST! If you would like to discuss anything with me or have a suggestion of what you would like to see happen here, or any ideas, or if you’re not happy about something – Please let me know – I want to hear your feedback.

Thanks so much for your support and co-operation for for making our small potting community so wonderful!

Everyone is creating such great work & I can’t wait to see what you make next!

Important: Rescheduling & Cancellations

Pottery Class Bookings cannot be rescheduled within 24hrs of class commencement. If you cannot make a class within 24hrs of your booking you will forfeit your spot & lose your money. Sorry – no rescheduling or refunds for ‘no shows’ or last minute cancellations within 24hrs.

Please do not text or email to Reschedule or Cancel a booking. You must log into your account to make any changes. Click Here to Log In on the My Account Page. Once logged in, Click onto ‘Bookings’ left hand side, then click onto the ‘Reschedule’ or ‘Cancel’ button next to your booking. If there is no button you may have left it too late, the reschedule & cancel button will automatically dissapear 24hrs before your scheduled class.

Sorry – but unfortunately I have had too many people reschedule or cancel at last minute which costs time & money.  I cannot afford to hold a place or block the calendar for someone who doesn’t show.  I often get texts from potters annoyed when they miss out on a spot or upset when the class is full and they can’t get in, and so if someone cancels at last minute or doesn’t show, not only do we lose a spot on the day it’s also taking up another spot the following week or whenever you decide to reschedule to. It’s not fair on me or on other potters who would loved to be here in your place. If you’re not sure whether you can make a class, please don’t book in the first place. Please wait until you’re 100% sure that you can make it before you book any spot and block it on the calendar for anyone else.

Thanks so much for your understanding!
