Private Group pottery classes and Events

Your Private Event or Special Celebration

Custom Private Pottery classes for your group are a great way to engage with friends/ family/ work colleagues for your special event or intimate celebration in our beautiful studio.

Each event can be custom built to your needs. Whether you are a small or large group - family or corporate.  If you wish to sit around for a bit afterwards you can choose our  catering option and enjoy grazing platters and a few drinks. Whichever way you go all of our studio experiences are designed  for fun. Whether you’ve never tried the pottery wheel or touched clay or if you would just like to re-connect with the medium, this is the opportunity to immerse yourself  in this 2 hour pottery session and enjoy a shared experience.

What's your group? Friends | Family | Business | Colleagues | Just the 2 of Us

Glazing and Firing

  •  Eternity or Eco options

The Eternity option – additional $15/20

Decide at the end of your class: to keep or not to keep.

For an additional $15/20 you can choose 1 or 2 of your selected pieces for  StudioMade’s professional team to fire & glaze using our own house batch  stoneware white.

Your pieces will survive *eternity – and be ready for you to return and collect in 3 or 4 weeks ( storage capacity is such that we can only hold for 6 weeks max – so into eternity they will not go whole).

Payment is due at the end of class.

The Eco Option – Free

We are just as pleased for you to choose the ‘eco’ option –  simply to have enjoyed your experience. Your pieces will stay with you in your minds eye and we will recycle then upcycle your used clay back into the clay buckets to be processed via our in-studio pugmill – for more clay experiences to be had by others ahead.

I would like to organise a private booking....what next?

  1. You organise your group based on the minimum class size/  contact us first with a few dates and we can lock it in with the allocated 'minimum' deposit.
  2. Confirmation is finalised when payment has been completed - within 7 days of agreeing on the date.
  3. For a full refund cancellation needs to occur within 14 days of the event agreed date.  Should Cancellation occur due to Co-VID lock-down - as per Ts and Cs - the event will be re-scheduled.

If you are considering a private booking during the studio term - please consider these days/times and book outside of these times. Term breaks can be more flexible with private booking times and days.
