Our 1-day children’s workshop is specially designed for children aged 5-12. In this workshop, they'll learn fundamental handbuilding techniques to make functional pieces such as bowls and mugs, and they can decorate their pieces with designs like animal faces, or engrave their names on them. Every kid will be able to make a piece and have it fired after class. The pieces can be collected two weeks after the session. Parents are welcome to sign up and participate with their kids too! This course will take in a maximum of 8 students to provide maximum guidance. Sign-ups will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.

* Additional ticket (on top of the ticket purchased for participating child) is required to be purchased for any Parent/Guardian who wish to participate alongside their child for the class.

"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.
