Description

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. 


Reviews

As an incentive to constantly improve my teaching, since 1999 I have recorded both good and bad reviews of my 200+ workshops here.

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

To ensure you are absolutely happy, I urge new students to only buy and attend their first lesson, before buying more lessons.


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 $127 discount on any  bundle of lessons in the table below.

For example: The  2018 fee for 12 lessons is $888 - $127 paid = $761 outstanding, with 11  lessons remaining, i.e. a $53 savings on your first lesson)

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.


You decide how many classes you attend, and so how much you pay per future lesson:

If you can't attend any class, your lesson credit is only protected (ie "rolled over") if you

b) provide a specific "date of return to class".

To keep track of a large floating student population, and prevent classes becoming too big or small.

What happens if I don’t? If you do not do both things, your balance will decline each week until I hear from you. 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 of your returning date, via email/text (to avoid the Penalty, include a return date), lessons can be repeatedly 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 check with me, that there is space in the classes.

4. Likely to be away for more than two months? You will need to 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.

I bought an introductory lesson and as a complete beginner and being new to Australia I was initially apprehensive. However the group was small and welcoming and I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson. Graham teaches you to develop your creativity at your own pace and the flexibility of the class booking system is great for me. I'm looking forward to my next class

"What a great pottery class." Graham Hay's pottery and sculpture classes are perfect for anyone who wants to "work in clay". Graham is a very experienced and creative teacher who has that unique quality of being able to bring out the the best in his students. The classes, which are held in the Roberston Park studio, are flexible, relaxed and enjoyable, and we work alongside artists creating their own art works. I am now embarking on my 3rd year and have no hesitation in recommending Graham to anyone who is interested in working with paper clay. Pros: Helpful, Encouraging, Smart, Patient, Fun, Good communicator How was this location?: Awesome How was the price?: Great value
