Overview

Located in a mid-century warehouse in Abbotsford, 2 Mayfield Street is a community space for creatives that offers up classes, gallery spaces and a place for everyone to feel welcome. The space is bright and airy, with a large ceramics studio and woodworking facility, and is often full of great tunes.

The pottery offering involves a wheel-throwing course designed for beginners and intermediates. Over six weeks, learn all the wheel skills, from designing to throwing to turning, trimming and glazing. By the end of the course, you'll be experimenting with decorating techniques such as underglaze colours, stoneware glazing and tissue transfers.

There are also opportunities to try the wheel as a one-off experience and see if it's right for you, as well as painting a piece that its very own Mayfield Makers created. Alternatively, try the Clay Soirée, where you experience both the wheel and the painting with a group of mates.

There are children's classes, too, which are particularly helpful during the school holidays and corporate events for team building. The Mayfield Gallery holds six projects annually, incorporating a performance element within an art exhibition. 2 Mayfield Street isn't your average pottery studio in Melbourne — the team here is constantly evolving the space's offerings and has created a really laidback and open space for people of varying skill levels.
