MUDDLE Club Classes

8-week term adult classes

Evenings 6pm – 9pm: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Daytime 10am – 1pm: Tuesday

These classes are open to all levels of clay experience from beginner through to a seasoned maker.



We have closed the waiting list because it was very, very, long. We will open the waiting list back up when the current list has been exhausted. To find out when the waiting list is open again please sign up to our newsletter and follow us on the socials.

Clay, glazes, tools, equipment are all supplied, and firing of works made during class is included.

Classes are taught in an open learning style, & there are mixed experience levels in each class. Our teacher demonstrates and explains different techniques, & then offers continuing guidance as students work on their own projects. Hands-on explanations of technical issues are given as they arise, & students are supported throughout the learning process. Our classes are inclusive, fun and interesting.

In the fully equipped studio learners can experience hand-building (making using the pinch, coil and slab techniques), wheel throwing (using the potters’ wheel to form the clay) and slip casting (using liquid clay in moulds). If you are new to clay, you’ll be led briefly through each of these techniques at the start of the term.

Our large light-filled workshop space includes 10 pottery wheels, a slab roller, hand-building tables, slip casting equipment and all the tools you’ll need.

We have a fully equipped kitchen; & bikkies, tea, coffee, milo etc are all provided.


Our ‘Muddle Club’ means that our enrolled students can come along to the studio whenever it’s open to keep working on their clay creations. Muddle Club access hours are 10am – 9pm Monday-Thursday, and other times by arrangement.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, unfortunately if it says that it is sold out on the website, it is indeed sold out and we can’t fit any more people in, we’re sorry.

SOON? Yes! There’s always more in the works. To find out when new dates get announced please sign up for our newsletter.

We get asked a lot if we offer a firing service, and unfortunately, we don’t. The only place we know of in Hobart that has a kiln hire/firing service is Derwent Ceramics in Moonah.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer casual or temporary studio hire.

Our wheels are all in use for our classes, so we’re sorry but we are unable to offer any of our pottery wheels for hire. The same goes for all of our other equipment and tools.
