Request/ Book a Pottery Wheel Throwing Workshop


*Minimum 4 guests to open a booking.

Pieces require 4-6weeks to dry, fire, glaze and undergo a second  firing. We are a small and busy studio so please wait the full 6 weeks before contacting the studio about your piece. We will contact you as soon as it is ready for pick up!

Pottery is therapeutic in so many ways. We literally use the term “centering,” when throwing on the wheel and just like life- when we can center ourselves it shows in our work and in our clay…

It also teaches us how to let go and deal with loss and failure and that is something so many of us struggle with.

When you learn pottery from Melba, it’s more than just playing with clay- it’s a chance to get to know yourself better and explore those parts that need a little TLC.

The Process

🔥Pottery pieces require 1 week to dry and 2  kiln firings. The first round is fired in a bisque firing and the second a  glaze firing before ready for pick up. Please allow 2-4weeks for turnaround of final product.


‼️Pottery is a fine art and pieces do not always turn out as expected and there is always risk of breakage during the process. The workshop are intended to be an experience for the guest and though we try our best for the successful outcomes of pottery pieces, guests are not 100% gauranteed a complete piece. 

🌿All sessions require guests to clean the studio and put away equipment when done as this is a shared and sacred studio space.
