When I found out that Alison was planning pottery workshops, I was in. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be gathering some friends who now want to do the same after I raved about it. I highly recommend Alison’s workshops. Can’t wait till the next one.

I would like to thank Alison for her time and instruction for the pottery lessons she has given me. She is highly passionate and knowledgeable in the manner in which she passes on her art of pottery in the most relaxed manner.

Alison is a supportive, relaxed, and helpful teacher and her workshops are relaxed, fun, meditative, educational, and inspiring. I absolutely loved the workshop with Alison there was no silly questions and she has the patience of a Saint with all types of personalities. Knowing nothing about pottery before I attended the workshop and having a creative streak I was like a sponge. It was quite surreal and relaxing. We all felt supported and encouraged to create.

I bought two products as gifts last Christmas but both my husband and I fell in love with them all ... so we decided to keep them. The bowls in particular are our fave, so much so that we’ve ordered more. We use them several times a week for hot and cold dishes, we aren’t precious about them. They go straight in the dishwasher and continue to look new.

About Us

Alison Skate

Muditation Facilitator

Hi, I'm Alison, and I have been playing with clay since my first pottery class over 20 years ago.

My love of clay has seen my hobby turn into an obsession that has now transformed half of my home into a cosy studio, which I invite you to enjoy with me.

I find clay play to be very mindful - that's why I refer to it as my 'muditation'. Its ability to reduce stress and feelings of anxiety is also quite therapeutic.

Please check my Workshops section to find out about up-coming events; many of the workshops are one-off "Dirty Date Nights", short courses, and 7-week pottery classes using the potter's wheel.  These are very small groups to ensure a level of support that will help you love what you have made.

Please contact me if you would like to make a private group booking for a special occassion.

Want to come and play in the studio? Ceramics are created and workshops are facilitated in Arana Hills, Brisbane. Opening hours are by appointment only.
