Pottery has been one of our favourite activities this past year. We love it so much we have done it for birthdays, hen parties and dates! Here are a couple of the most unique ones we think you should try.

Learn to Make Fine Ceramics Used by Ritz Carlton

This is perfect if you want to learn from the very best. Dirty Hands Only makes fine ceramics used by Ritz-Carlton, Shangri La, Mandarin Oriental - need we say more?!

In this 2-hour intro to pottery class, you'll learn both pottery techniques (hand building & wheel throwing) on a cosy rooftop garden.

Learn Pottery from the makers of fine ceramics at Dirty Hands Only

The wheel throwing technique is what you see out of the movie 'Ghost', where you use a pottery wheel to create pieces that are symmetrical (for e.g. bowls, cups). The wheel is amazingly fun & therapeutic - we even wanted to get our own at home after the session!

Hand-building on the other hand is the most traditional pottery technique, where you can mould clay with your hands to make whatever organic shapes your imagination can think up! You can make a beautiful wabi sabi vase, or a sake bottle - anything that you like!

Learn the traditional technique of hand-building

The best part? After the class, your instructor will glaze your handmade pieces in their gorgeous signature glazing style - so your pieces will look like they were purchased from a fancy ceramics boutique. They may be too pretty to use!

Our final pieces - look at that gorgeous glaze!

Private Pottery Session in a Lush Zen Garden

This private pottery class in a lush garden studio is a great one for a special date or birthday. We love how green and peaceful this space is - the lush green garden vibes really help get the creative juices going!

Gorgeous garden studio - perfect for a private group!

During this 2-hour class, you'll learn hand-building from a creative designer. Emily, your instructor, is really kind and patient, and encourages her guests to be super creative. As it's a private class, you'll get Emily's full attention to help you create magic ✨

The hand-building technique is incredibly versatile so you can really make anything you want. When we first started making pottery, we thought that wheel throwing would be more fun than hand-building. But when we realised that we could go really crazy and creative with hand-building, we were sold!

After the class, Emily will also help you fire & glaze your piece. You can choose the colours of your glazing - so your custom piece will really come alive. Look at how gorgeous our piece turned out!
