We believe that creativity is an underrated mindfulness practice, not an innate quality or an end result — which is why our experiences are designed to help you disconnect, reconnect and get dirty.

Wheeling & Dealing for All Levels

Yup, our wheel throwing classes are seriously designed for everyone. Whether your at a Patrick Swayze or Gumby level, our teachers can quickly adapt and coach you to reach your full potential.

Led by Local Legends

We’re obsessed with learning from the best! Our wheel classes are led by local legends who have mastered the art of wheel throwing (not some awkies ghost).

They'll share their secrets and provide personalised feedback to perfect your posture, hand placement, and breathing so you can find your rhythm on the wheel. It’s the perfect way to learn the ins and outs of wheel throwing.
