Join 3Arts to create your own ceramic pieces on the pottery wheel at a historic 70-years-old Dragon Kiln. This 3.5-hour class is great for individuals with little or no pottery experience and would like to try. Option Highlights ✅ Visit a historic dragon kiln and have the pottery session there ✅ Guidance by a patient and experienced instructor ✅ Have experienced potters glaze and colour your work ✅ All materials, tools, and firing are provided ✅ Bring home your beautiful creation when it's ready What to Expect. The class begins with a short tour of the historic dragon kiln, where your instructor will share more about the heritage of this small, integral part of Singapore. You will then move on to the pottery lesson right at the kiln. There will be a short demonstration from the instructor on the different pottery techniques. Once you get a better understanding of what to do, you'll try it out for yourself on your wheel. The instructor will go around to help and give tips on how to execute these techniques. Pro-tip: Come prepared with images of what you would like to make so that you spend more time on the wheel and less time planning! Collection of your Work You will get to keep two of your favorite pieces from this session. Each additional piece you wish to keep would cost an extra $10. Your handmade pieces will be available for collection after 8 weeks, as they require glazing with color and 2 rounds of firing. If you wish to glaze your own wares, opt for the 2-lesson pottery bundle where you may return to the studio to glaze your work after the pieces have been fired once in the kiln. This wheel-throwing session is suitable for 12 years old and above. Other Notes Dragon Kiln workshops are scheduled only once a month. Do check the booking form for available dates.

3 Arts x Center Pottery

3 Arts x Center Pottery was founded by Joan, a doctor by training. In 2016, she decided to switch her career for a potter after seeing many people around her suffering from mental illnesses. Among her circle of friends, she found many suffering from anxiety and depression due to their work environment and lifestyle. With her healthcare background, Joan went on to seek natural remedies to improve the mental wellness of her friends and discovered pottery making. Upon learning the calming effect that comes with pottery making, she developed a pottery curriculum together with 2 other certified psychologists from Heart to Heart Psychotherapy and SportsPsych Consulting. Today, Joan has successfully integrated mental wellness into her pottery curriculum and want to inspire more students to find their inner peace. With the studio's mission to bring mental wellness to people, the potter teachers reinforce the principles of the 5Cs: Composure, Confidence, Cope-ability, Cohesion and Concentration, and point out reflective moments for students to understand themselves better.

Was a bit worried about going for this class because I have zero pottery experience and am not very good at art (drawing/painting). But the friendly, patient and experienced instructors were there at every step, demonstrating, teaching, guiding and coming to help us whenever necessary. I loved that I got my own freedom to apply the different techniques I learnt and get the instructors to help me when I was struggling. I finally get why people say pottery is so therapeutic - the 2-2.5 hours passed by so quickly! Pro-tip: It's best to come to class with an idea of what pieces you want to make (if you have an image reference that would be best) so that the instructors can help you bring your vision to life. :)

Overall the course was comfortable. Instructor Moon was able to guide well, and the assistant teacher was patient. Guided well and helped to position hands on the clay for efficient learning! Overall a new experience and worth a shot

Did not enjoy myself in class. Went alone and felt quite lost in class, not very guided/ guided well. Artwork felt more like done by teacher.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We had a great time learning more about pottery at the wheel throwing experiential class.

The experiential trial workshop was fun and almost relaxing (still quite stressful as newbies if the clay went out of control!). the teachers around were all knowledgeable and helpful as most of us were first timers at wheel-throwing! Will be back again to do more :)
