PRIVATE CLASSES

Let’s get down and dirty at your next work event (without all the awkward post party HR interventions) or gather for a birthday celebration to remember!

Here at Clay Sydney we pride ourselves on helping you host events that bring people together, learn new skills, and above all: have fun! 

Each of our three inner-west studios have capacity for intimate workshops of 8 or more, through to energetic sessions of up to 40 people. We can also include satellite virtual attendees, if required. 

For off site events, we’ve previously taught 150 attendees, and are very happy to go bigger - just tell us where and when! 

Our clients have included such brands as Google, Domain, Foxtel, Ernst & Young, and Channel 9. 

When you’re ready to book, just let us know your preferred times and dates in the form below, and we can get you all booked in.  Alternativly email hello@claysydney.com

What are my private class options?

In-Studio Wheel

People: min 8 - max 12 

Locations: Victoria Road Studio, Marrickville, and Renwick Street Studio, Marrickville. 

Duration: 90 mins 

This is the class everyone thinks about when they hear ‘pottery class’, but we promise there won’t be an awkward Swayze moment in sight. 

It’s a muddy road to making your first wobbly wheel thrown piece, but you’ll have a blast along the way. Our expert wheel tutors take you through the process step-by-step, and make sure that everyone comes away making at least one piece. What will this piece look like? You decide, but usually it’s a small cup, vase, bowl or planter. 

You’re more than welcome to bring along a drinkie or two, although for this class we don’t recommend nibbles. You’re too engrossed in the muddy task at hand to eat (and probably don’t want a soggy clay cracker either).

In-Studio Handbuilding: Our Iconic Wine and Clay

Capacity: min 12 - max at each location 40; unlimited out of studio.

Locations: All studios

Duration: 2 hours

By far our most popular class is our Wine and Clay sessions, and you can probably guess why... cheers!

In this two hour session, you’ll socialise, enjoy BYO nibbles and drinkies, and perfect your very own ceramic creation under the guiding hand of our expert handbuilding tutors. It’s fun, social, and everyone makes something!

We focus on form and texture make your vessel; be it a vase, a planter, a mug, or something all you, baby!

Of course, if you’d prefer not to bring wine, that’s fine too! We can be as family-friendly (or not) as you need.

Out-of-Studio Handbuilding

Capacity: the sky’s the limit 

Locations: you tell us where, and we’ll be there

Duration: 2 hours, plus bump in/out 

The beauty of our handbuilding sessions is they can be infinitely scaled up. As long as you’ve got a surface to work on, we’ll bring everything else you’ll need. 

After the class we take away your work to our studio to be glazed, fired and returned to one location.

Hybrid Events or Host-your-own with Clay at Home Kits

Our Clay at Home kits lend themselves excellently to hybrid events, when some participants aren’t able to make it into the studio. 

Each kit includes all the tools, clay and instructions they’ll need. Simply let us know when booking how many kits you’d like us to send out, and we’ll even arrange the courier, ready for them to virtually join us on the day. 

Alternatively, if you’d like to organise your own clay-day without tutors, you’re able to use our Clay at Home portal to access On-Demand videos and instructions to create your masterpieces. 

Add On: Clay Olympics

Capacity: this is a great spectator sport, so we recommend it for larger groups to watch a select few individuals

Duration: additional 30 mins 

In this hilarious session, up to 8 participants will take part in the Clay Olympics; a series of pottery related challenges to become the master of mud! 

Challenges include wheel throwing, one handed coils, slabs and the many handled mugs. We suggest senior management take part in this one. 

It’s a spectacle. It’s a mess. It’s loud. There’s panic. Everyone cries with laughter.
