Where are we going today?

Who's potty for pots!?  Our favorite part is feeling the squelch of the clay between our fingers as we create our masterpieces!  Well...we think they are masterpieces.  We're sure yours will be much better!

Lakeside Pottery Ceramics school and studio is a great way for the whole family to get creative and learn the art of pottery.  

They hold a great range of classes for any age, any levels.  Fancy a spin on the pottery wheel?  Then the Pottery Wheel beginners and advanced classes might be for you.

Or perhaps you want to try hand building and sculpting?  That's always fun!

These courses come in 8 week packages for you to really hone your craft, but they also offer 1 time classes if you want to just experience it for the day, and see how you like it.  You never know - you might be a natural!

If kids really love it and want to come back, and parents want 2 hours a week extra to catch up on life, then you can enrol your child into their Thursday after school classes, from 4:15pm - 6:15pm.   Here they will learn how to use the potters wheel, understand hand building techniques, have fun with glazes and really get to explore their creative side. 

For kids aged 8 - 13 they can choose to enrol in one of their fun summer camps which will maximise their exploration into the creative pottery world and give them a sense of achievement. (7 year olds will be considered for this, so don't feel like you might have to wait until you're the big number 8!)

Get potty!

Any Top Tips?

If you really loved it and would love to bring your potty friends, then you can hold your birthday party there. Instructors will teach your friends just as you were taught, so they can learn all the basics too! Then, the lovely staff with fire (that means "cook" in pottery terms!) your creations and you will have them shortly after the party to keep!.

More information

If you really fancy getting stuck into the pottery world, they offer private classes where you can go as a parent/child pairing and enjoy a private lesson. These 75 minute classes are a great way to expand your pottery knowledge quickly. These are suitable for kids aged 7 and up, or 8 if they want to use the potters wheel. .

    A true professional! From my initial phone consultation where he detailed exactly what he could do, to offering detailed shipping information (I live in Las Vegas), I have been completely satisfied! I opted for his best work and when my Boehm Least Tern sculpture arrived, I was ecstatic at the quality of the finished piece! It now looks as though it has just come from the Boehm Studios.
    I am making Lakeside Pottery my only porcelain repair studio. Thanks.

    My wife inherited an old Della Robia style Italian disk that her mother had for many years with a lot of sentimental value. I had never really seen it up close, but it had been very poorly repaired at some time in the distant past with glue showing on the front and back. I sent it off to Lakeside for restoration and it returned in fabulous shape. There was no visible sign of the old repair and it looks great. It still looks like the antique it is, but the difference in appearance is amazing. I was very happy with the estimate of time to repair...Read More

    I broke a vase that was very dear to me and irreplaceable. I tried to glue it myself but saw the flaws and knew I would be heartbroken every time I looked at it. I was sure I could take it to someone in the metro area near my home. I got online and searched for a company I could trust. The ONE AND ONLY website capable of the intricate work my vase required was Lakeside Pottery, Sure I had to ship it half way across the country, but once I contacted them, I knew I had found skill and professionalism I was seeking. They stayed in constant communication...Read More

    My wife bought 3 sculptures and unfortunately I broke two of the 3 men, each in many pieces. Lakeside pottery put them back together so they could join their brother. The repair exceeded my expectation in every way. Now it is impossible to tell which 2 were repaired. I am truly impressed and grateful.

I was very happy with the estimate of time to repair (which they beat by several weeks) and the logistics of shipping there and back were just what was advertised. A great experience overall.

They stayed in constant communication throughout the process and the end result is just beautiful. There is no one out there like Lakeside Pottery and I would have lost my precious vase if not for them. A million thanks!!!
