The
 Clay Room @ CCC is an exciting new creative space for pottery - check out the website www.theclayroom.org.au
 

The Clay Room offers classes and workshops for beginners to experienced potters - for adults, secondary and primary aged students.  Meet our highly experienced craftspeople who offer expert tuition in hand building and wheel throwing. Classes include all equipment and kiln firing.


Wheel-throwing
pottery classes involve using the potter's wheel to make objects. Learn how to properly use a potter's wheel, the correct amount of water to use to keep the clay pliable and how to keep the wheel turning at a steady rate.

Hand-building
 pottery classes allow you to make everything from sculpture, including figurative and abstract forms to functional objects like bowls, cups, platters and tiles, without the use of a potter's wheel.

Choose from a number of Wheel Throwing & Hand Building pottery classes available below.

Stephen Doyle 1
Stephen Doyle is driven by his thirst for practical and theoretical art knowledge, and to those ends he embraces the research of pictorial history through the ages. Well-known for his lively and faithful studies of horses, either darting around the track competing at full gallop, or at rest standing nobly and sedately, he is also gaining a considerable reputation for his discerning portraits, often with an unusual twist, and always with an awareness of the sitter’s psychological individuality. His subject matter spans quite a broad scope to include sea/landscape, interiors and still life. 
Stephen was invited to become a member of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society Inc in 2010…He teaches at both Brighton Art’s Society and the Victorian Artists Society.

Camberwell Community Centre prides itself on providing programs and activities for the local Boroondara community. We offer Adult art, well being, langauge and general interest programs and a variety of adult activity groups. We also offer programs for school aged children. We are a meeting point for many local groups and organisations and offer a variety of rooms and a large hall for hire.
