Classes and Workshops

Each term we hold a number of pottery classes – see the latest brochure or website for more details. In addition we have regular “Play with Clay” sessions during the week which run throughout the year. We also teach the studio component of the Otago Polytechnic Diploma in Ceramic Arts course.

Open Day

The Society holds an open day at least once a year. It’s a chance for the members to kick off the year with a bang and promote the Society to the public. 

The studio is open for use by members from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday and 10am to 1pm Saturday, as long as no class is scheduled.less
