Guided by our experienced tutor, children will get a feel for how the wheel works, learn how to centre clay and how to create their own masterpiece! Every child will get to choose one piece of work from that class will be glazed and fired by NPS staff and ready for collection within 2-3 weeks.
This is an opportunity for young children to explore and play with clay, developing their skills to match their imagination. The cost of this course includes access to Northcote Pottery Supplies Stoneware clay, all materials and tools required, and the firing and glazing of your work.
Parents are welcome to stay during activities or can enjoy a coffee or tea on Lygon Street, a short stroll away.

She has completed a Masters of Visual Art at Victorian College of the Arts in 2010, taught art and design in various high schools and am currently teaching pottery in Melbourne.

Adele’s interest in materials and processes keeps her learning new techniques all of the time and one of her favourite things to do is share what she learns.
