INSTRUCTOR: Dillon Lin, Sarah Teh

The foundation of wheel-throwing will be taught during this 6-week ceramics course (one 2.5 hour class per week). Students will be taught at the start how to throw a cylinder form, after which they will work on other forms such as bowls and cups, turn/trim the bases of pieces, and apply glazing techniques using in-studio Ves glazes.

After 6 weeks, students will have their own glazed pots and bowls fired and may be collected within 1 month after the 6th week. This course is ideal for beginners with little or no experience at all.

The cost of this course includes usage of clay up to 7 pieces, use of wheel and equipment, materials for decorating and glazing, and firing. Basic tools (for you to keep!) and extra pieces made will be under separate costs. This course holds a capacity of 8 students to provide close individual guidance.

*Recommended for participants at least 13 years old


• Sign ups will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, no reservations or waitlist.

• Strictly no refunds, exchanges, or cancellations.

• Class pieces to be collected within 2 months from the last class date or they will be discarded.

• Each course requires a minimum of 4 participants to commence. Should this number not be met, a full refund will be provided.

Journey into Pottery

Pottery is an art that requires time and dedication. At Ves, we offer 4-8 session courses to take you on an immersive journey into the world of pottery. Feel the clay in your fingers, experience the momentum of the wheel, and master foundational techniques. Your journey concludes with the creation of your very own ceramic pieces, crafted from scratch by you.


Personalised Guidance For All

Each budding potter is unique. Our small classes, limited to just 8 students, allow for undivided attention from our teachers. This cozy environment fosters connections and friendships among participants.


Taught by Seasoned Professionals

Led by renowned ceramicist Jean Adrienne whose expertise was honed since 2010 through residencies in Japan, Melbourne and Korea. Jean infuses the studio with her vast experience, mentoring both students and our seasoned instructors. Each instructor is either trained by Jean, or brings at least 6 years of experience, providing a diverse and comprehensive learning environment.


Therapeutic & Relaxing

In the midst of life's hustle, we all crave an escape. Pottery offers that sanctuary—calming, relaxing, and the satisfaction of crafting by hand is unparalleled. Our studio is a warm and inviting space where you can find solace anytime, even after your courses conclude.


    • Novices begin with the fundamentals, learning to throw cylinder forms, progressing to bowls and cups.
    • Experienced potters refine their skills, creating larger bowls, pitchers, and vases.
    • All students will learn to turn and trim the bases of their pieces.
  • Week 6 – Glazing Intro/improvement

    • Students will be introduced to the basic techniques of glazing.
    • Experienced students will apply glazing techniques using in-studio Ves glazes.



    "Creative-types will feel right at home when they get their start in crafting through the medium of clay when they enter Ves"


    What course should I take if I am a complete beginner?

    Pottery usually begins with handbuilding so for absolute beginners we will recommend the Introduction to Handbuilding course before getting to wheelthrowing.

    That said, if you'd like to challenge yourself, our Beginner/Extension Wheelthrowing course is suitable for beginners with no experience too!

    What if I have signed up and can’t make it for the classes?

    As our courses are planned months in advance, we do not offer refunds or exchanges for credits for any of our courses.

    That said, we can arrange one make-up session of the same course at another timeslot. However, do note this is subject to availability. If courses are full, this will not be possible.

    Do you have one-off workshops?

    Unfortunately, no. At Ves, we only offer short courses that are at least 4 sessions long.

    Pottery is a craft that takes decades to master. We believe that short courses are the best way to introduce people to the beauty of pottery and properly impart pottery techniques.

    Students also need time to warm up to clay and its properties, and familiarise with new equipment and tools before they start enjoying pottery. We hope you join us!

    When can I collect my class pieces?

    You can collect your pieces one month after your glazing class.

    Do make sure to collect them within 3 months of the glazing class, else we reserve the right to dispose of them. We have ongoing lessons and hundreds of new students pieces being fired daily, so unfortunately we are unable to store your pieces for long.

    We seek your understanding to collect your pieces in time.
