Hand-building is one of the oldest pottery methods and involves creating pieces without a pottery wheel - simply using hands, fingers, and simple tools. The session focuses on pinching, coiling, and slab rolling methods to make your unique creations. Recommended age: 13+It is up to the parents' good judgement whether the workshop is suitable for their younger children.What to ExpectThe class begins with a short demonstration from the instructor on the different hand-building techniques (be punctual so you won't miss this!). Once you get a better understanding of what to do, you'll try it out for yourself. The instructor will go around to help and give tips on how to execute these techniques. Pro-tip: Come prepared with images of what you would like to make so that you spend more time on the wheel and less time planning!Collection of PiecesYou will get to keep one of your favourite pieces from this session. Each additional piece will cost $10 to keep (for the firing & handling). They will be available for collection after 8 weeks, as they require glazing with colour and 2 rounds of firing. If you wish to glaze your own wares, opt for the 2-lesson pottery bundle where you may return to the studio to glaze your work after the pieces have been fired once in the kiln. Time SlotsThere are slots available from Tuesday to Sunday. The class is sized to a maximum of 8 pax per lesson. Other NotesThis 2.5-hour class is suitable for those with little or no pottery experience, and individuals of 13 years & above. Individuals with special needs will be accompanied by a caregiver.

3 Arts x Center Pottery was founded by Joan, a doctor by training. In 2016, she decided to switch her career for a potter after seeing many people around her suffering from mental illnesses. Among her circle of friends, she found many suffering from anxiety and depression due to their work environment and lifestyle. With her healthcare background, Joan went on to seek natural remedies to improve the mental wellness of her friends and discovered pottery making. Upon learning the calming effect that comes with pottery making, she developed a pottery curriculum together with 2 other certified psychologists from Heart to Heart Psychotherapy and SportsPsych Consulting. Today, Joan has successfully integrated mental wellness into her pottery curriculum and want to inspire more students to find their inner peace. With the studio's mission to bring mental wellness to people, the potter teachers reinforce the principles of the 5Cs: Composure, Confidence, Cope-ability, Cohesion and Concentration, and point out reflective moments for students to understand themselves better.

The instructor, Jaslyn is very knowledgeable and passionate about pottery and taught us with care. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and in the future, i’ll be back for more classes if I have the time!

It was an enriching session with an unpleasant experience. The background noise of the rain drizzling made active listening & group sharing less effectively (esp w mask on). Secondly the teacher indeed has vast experience in Pottery compared to novice like us with only 15 mins of exposure hence gentle reminder instead of unforgiving messaging like “why you never pay attention “ , “shaking his head”, “why like that, why you never do…”? repeatedly, impatiently take over to rectify it make into a typical cup. We expected to have a fun session, making a cup of our own uniqueness, atypical version with little bit of creativity. Both my son n I, indeed disappointed. Thank you.

Pre-Requisites for The Trip
Minimum 9 years old.
Hi, I didn't read properly when I proceed with the booking. Is it possible to change my booking to the one with pottery wheels?
Hi Lynn, We are very sorry - Once the booking is confirmed, you won't be able to change to other options.
From the reviews, seems like one of the instructors isn’t that ideal. Are we able to know which instructor is scheduled for the different dates?
Hi Ping, We are not able to guarantee which instructor will be available on a certain date, but we will make sure the instructor will give their best to assist you during the workshop :)
Can I ask if is skillsfuture claimable?
Hi Elaine, Unfortunately we do not accept SRV/skillsfuture credit :)
Hi, i have never done pottery. After attending a class do you think i can continue to make something at home ?
Hi Anu, Thank you for your question. You may practice the hand-building technique you learned from the class at home if you have the materials :)
