Pottery is a buzz word at the moment. Come and see what all the fuss is about and ‘throw some pots’!

Visit Sam’s little Queenstown studio with up to 3 friends or family members and spend a morning or afternoon session on the pottery wheel working with clay. Sam will teach you the fundamentals of throwing and set you on your way to creating your first pieces. The classes are designed for beginners, where you will go over how to centre your clay, and produce three items. At the end of the session you’ll be able to choose from a wide selection of glazes for your pieces. Sam will them take your pieces, bisque fire them, glaze them, glaze fire them and then ship them to a provided address. Sign up to his newsletter to learn when these workshops are next available. Or just to look at his beautiful work.
