classes & workshops

The Illawarra potters is a not-for-profit studio space run by volunteers. Our community members have access to the studio's equipment, such as work tables, kilns and wheels, which many people do not have at home.


AT THE ILLAWARRA POTTERS


We provide regular members sessions where you can work on your pottery skills and chat with your fellow members. For those wanting to learn foundational skills from potters & ceramists we have our Learn, Make, Create workshops, which is a four session introduction to pottery run over four weekends, the content is developed by potters and ceramists to give a base of knowledge and techniques so you can confidently build your skills. We are a community studio and provide the Learn, Make, Create workshops to raise funds for our studio.

Being volunteer run community studio we do not provide pottery 'classes' for members we offer a variety of workshops such as 8 week Wheel Throwing for Everyone, Hand Building Techniques and 2 day Slab Techniques workshops, some of which maybe available to non members.

We also partner with local makers and artists to provide workshops where they share their skills!


Tickets to all of our workshops can be purchased through our Eventbrite page. Follow us on our social media and Eventbrite for more details.
