Expert and experienced tuition

Graham Hay has taught these classes since 1998.

An internationally recognised expert in ceramics and ceramic education, he is regularly invited to teach interstate and in a dozen countries.

Expert in teaching both beginners and previously experienced students.

All teaching will be customised to suit your own personal background and preferences, so you can learn and make what interests you, at your own speed.

See below a very short video of a random mix of beginners and long term students. 


As an incentive to constantly improve my teaching, since 1999 I have recorded both good and bad reviews of my 200+ workshops here: https://www.grahamhay.com.au/comments.html

To gain an impression of your likely experience find other reviews via Googling: reviews "Perth Pottery and Sculpture Classes"  

To ensure you are absolutely happy, I urge new students to only buy and attend their first lesson, before buying more lessons.  Do quiz the other students in the class, they’ll tell you all my faults!

Small, highly individual  classes

The classes are small, with a weekly average of 6 students per class.  

Only one or two new students join each class group at a time.

This ensures you receive greater support and encouragement from the teacher (and other students), compared to a large class of just beginners.

Plus both you and the regular students receive plenty of individual assistance.

This also means that you, regardless of your level of experience, are looked after and made most welcome.

You will receive timely instruction and advise whenever you require it.

Incermental expert advise means you can work at your own pace.  

Because of this individual expert instruction, all students may pause, and resume (subject to space), their attendance.   Regardless of reason (health, work, family, holiday, travel etc).   Your class credit is preserved, provided you send a text or email, prior to the beginning of the lesson, and include a new  date of return to class.

This means attending all students are healthy, happy and a relaxed atmosphere.  

This also creates socially dynamic classes, with students appearing, disappearing and then re-appearing week by week.

As no two students make the same work, you can also learn also from fellow students, and the other studio artists.

Based upon your individual preferences, confidence, prior skills and knowledge, Graham introduces simple steps for you to create your work.  

Many enjoy the classes being held within an open plan studio, surrounded by friendly, professional working artists.

The relaxed environment is enhanced by the light filled, high ceiling studio enviroment, within a beautiful inner-city park.

Try before you buy more lessons:

Pre-pay for the first lesson only.

Then decide during the first lesson if you wish to continue with further lessons.

If you purchase further lessons during your first lesson you receive an immediate $137 discount on any bundle of lessons in the table below.

The larger the bundle bought during the first lesson, the greater the discount.

This initial discount only applies if further lessons are purchased during the first lesson.

Bulk Discount.

To ensure new students receive plenty of expert assistance, while recognising that long term students contribute to the studio and classes in many ways.

To enable students to purchase a variety of bundles of lessons, to suit their personal circumstances.

Once enrolled and prepaid lessons, you may pause and resume your attendance at any time (due to health, holidays, travel, work, family etc), without penalty, and change classes, provided you text or email date changes before the lesson (to avoid the Penalty, always include a return date), and there is space in the class.

New students are urged to read first "Try before you buy" (just above).

Terms & Conditions

Class Conditions (not applicable for workshops):

1. Courtesy Saves: If you can't attend any class, your lesson credit is only protected (ie "rolled over") if you email or text me before the lesson, AND provide a specific "date of return to class".  

The quickest and easiest way is by using the reschedule link in class confirmation or reminder emails.

This information is essential to prevent too large or too small classes. 

I will confirm receipt of you text or email, and that your place in the class reserved. 

If you do not provide a return date, or do not attend the lesson, your balance will decline each week. When your balance reached zero, your shelve will be cleared (to make space for new students) and all clay recycled.

If you let me know via email/text, lessons can be rolled over for up to 2 years.

2. Similarly, if you are returning to classes after a prolonged absence, please contact me well before to ensure a place is reserved for you.

3. You can change which day and time you attend classes, and even attend more than one lesson per week, provided you have first discussed it with me, and there is space in the class.  If you are using the automatic system, you'll see live online were the gaps are and can immediately reschedule.

4. If you are likely to be away for more than two months, you will be asked to temporarily take your clay and creations home (so to make space for new students, and to encourage you to keep making at home). Upon your return a space will be again made available for you.

5. Want more flexibility? Just ask.

Hi Mark

Just found your online review!! Better late than never.  All the very best.   Cheers  Graham


23 June 2015 • Perth Pottery & Sculpture class:

The sculpture class is an ideal mate: casual when you want it to be, intense and engaging when you need it to be and able to give some guidance when it should. At the very least it's worth flirting with.
