We have set up our studio to bring together pottery and ceramics in a combined space and to be an affordable, fun place where anyone can come and enjoy creating with clay. Our studio is a place where there are very little rules except to respect your fellow artists, their work and the studio, to relax and learn that there is no end to the possibilities when working with clay..........

At SaJo Ceramics you can...

Join a casual pottery class or social pottery & ceramics session; take a workshop to have a go at the pottery wheel, take one of our 6 week courses to learn the basics of throwing, or just use our  Melbourne studio facilities on a casual basis. Discover beautiful stoneware handmade tiles for a unique splashback or outdoor wall feature or make your own! Explore a huge catalogue of ceramic pieces to paint in both acrylic paints and fired finishes, made to order from vintage and modern bisque designs. Buy hand made tile blanks for your school or community project, ready for you to paint, carve or decorate, or just drop in and chat with fellow artists while enjoying a cuppa.

Today’s kiln workshop was just what i needed as a prodpective kiln purchaser. Georgie was very thorough, helpful and always answered any questions with a lot of patience. I just wish it was a little longer. It felt a bit rushed at times. But overall, loved it!

Thank you for your lovely review Michal. I'm glad you enjoyed the workshop. I agree with you that the work shop should be longer. Hence we have now changed it to 4 hours.
