With exposed brick walls, gorgeous timber floorboards and a constant stream of natural light, it would be easy to confuse Terrapotter Studios with a funky, new small bar. This South Melbourne pottery studio offers classes, ceramics retail and membership, and its supportive staff and teachers are said to be some of the best in the business.

Its classes include an introduction to wheel throwing, where students get to sit at the wheel for the first time and see what kind of masterpiece they can spin out before trimming, glazing and firing the piece. This is for people who are clay-curious and want to see if they should commit to a longer course. Or people who just want to chill out for a couple of short hours.

The term courses consist of seven two-hour classes. Students will learn how to throw, trim and glaze, and by the end of the seven weeks, they'll leave with a newfound understanding of what pottery is, as well as an arsenal of skills and their own works of pottery. If you want to take your pottery skills to the next level, this course is for you. 

It also offers private functions, so if you want to do something different for your birthday this year and not just head to the bowlo for barefoot bowls (don't worry, we love barefoot bowls, but every birthday?), then this is a good option to keep in mind. 

The Terrapotter Studios staff are supportive and friendly, and the space is charming and relaxing. We couldn't think of anywhere better to start out potting.
