Wheel Throwing Class

Sunshine Coast, Queensland

The Pottery Studio in Nambour, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, is a place where you are encouraged to find stillness in the pottery process.

All sessions are an opportunity to slow down and experience the therapeutic benefits that come with having your hands covered in clay.

For those who wish to explore the meditative state of making mud go in circles, the 2½ hour beginner wheel classes offer the chance to let the stresses of the day subside and learn to stretch, squeeze and squash shapes together.

Guided by experienced studio teachers, you are invited to explore the process and presence needed to create your vessels. Prepare to let go of any expectations or attachment and get completely covered in clay. Notice all your thoughts and worries melt away as your hands and mind focus on the crafting of your clay, allowing you to be truly present.

You’ll make 1 or 2 pieces during the class and return a few weeks later for a firing session to finish your work.
