Covid-19 Updates:With the current restrictions in place, 3 Arts x Center Pottery will not be able to accept any students below the age of 18 until 21st June 2021.This is a 2.5-hour pottery workshop that teaches you to use the pottery wheel to create your own beautiful ceramic bowls/cups. Perfect for individuals who are interested to try out pottery (wheel-throwing) and have little to no pottery experience.Recommended age: 13+It is up to the parents' good judgement whether the workshop is suitable for their younger children.Option Highlights✅ Learn to create your own ceramic pieces using the potter's wheel✅ All materials, tools, and firing are provided✅ Guidance by a patient and experienced instructor✅ Have experienced potters glaze and colour your work for you✅ Bring home your beautiful creation when it's readyWhat to Expect Immerse yourself in the process of wheel throwing — using the electric pottery wheel where your foot controls the speed of the wheel with the pedal whereas your hands shape the pieces.The class begins with a short demonstration from the instructor on the different wheel-throwing 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 on your wheel. 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. This wheel-throwing session is suitable for 12 years old and above. Time SlotsThere are slots available from Tuesday to Sunday. The class is sized to a maximum of 16 pax per lesson.

3 Arts x Center Pottery

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 was very patient and helpful. Had a lot of fun, and enjoyed getting out of the house to do something practical after months of working from home. Having the self-made cup as a nice memory is like a gift that keeps on giving. The complimentary drinks were a nice perk I didn’t expect.

Pottery 2-Lesson Bundle: Potter's Wheel + Glazing

Was a bit worried about going for this class because I have zero pottery experience and am not very good at art (drawing/painting). But the friendly, patient and experienced instructors were there at every step, demonstrating, teaching, guiding and coming to help us whenever necessary. I loved that I got my own freedom to apply the different techniques I learnt and get the instructors to help me when I was struggling. I finally get why people say pottery is so therapeutic - the 2-2.5 hours passed by so quickly! Pro-tip: It's best to come to class with an idea of what pieces you want to make (if you have an image reference that would be best) so that the instructors can help you bring your vision to life. :)

Overall the course was comfortable. Instructor Moon was able to guide well, and the assistant teacher was patient. Guided well and helped to position hands on the clay for efficient learning! Overall a new experience and worth a shot

Did not enjoy myself in class. Went alone and felt quite lost in class, not very guided/ guided well. Artwork felt more like done by teacher.
