Awesome experience!

My partner and I had a wonderful morning at Winterwares ! Simone was great with her technique and taught us how to make the pottery. Will definitely go again to make some more stuff !

Cup making

I recently attended Simone’s mug-making class for the second time (having done it a couple of years earlier). The experience was just as fantastic as I remembered it being. The Winterwares shop itself is a beautiful relaxing space and Simone is the perfect pottery tutor. She provided just the right amount of direction and attention to all that attended. We look forward to picking up our glazed mugs in a few weeks! Highly recommend this class to any novice or ceramics newbie, or anyone wanting to try something new with nurturing guidance.

Beautiful experience

I received gift voucher for my birthday to make a breakfast set. The space is gorgeous and our tutor, Ana was a gentle guide who gave us just the right amount of direction so that we could learn techniques independently. Lots of attention to detail - including a lovely morning tea afterwards too. It was the most lovely, mindful experience - highly recommended. Thank you Sim and Ana!

Love it!

I have been using it and I absolutely love the look and feel of it, and the fact that each one is unique and handmade makes me appreciate it more.

Breakfast set

What an awesome class! Definitely recommend it, I have zero pottery skills but was really happy with results. Ana was amazing and made the class fun. This was a gift from my son for my birthday and will definitely be doing another one. Simone was so friendly and welcoming and i enjoyed the treats. Can't wait to pick up my pieces !! The most relaxing activity I have done in ages !

Make a Mug or a Vase
Beautiful workshop

My mum, sister and I did this workshop for a girls day and it was a beautiful setup, well guided class, very peaceful and relaxing, Sim is very lovely and helpful. Definitely recommend it!

Rest & Repair

This Kinstugi class had it all. Expert guidance by the patient and supportive Anna and a beautifully curated take-home kit containing materials required to practice our new skills in this centuries-old art of mending broken things. The Winterwares studio is a calm and tranquil space in which to slow down the pace of life and engage all the senses-I’d happily spend all my days there!

Loved it

I have to get another one, my husband keeps taking mine!

Bud Vase – Seconds
Jacinta Freeman
Lovely little bud vases

These are just such gorgeous bud vases. I'd love to have one in every colour.


I was gifted one of these big Winterwares mug for christmas and I LOVE it. It's on the same beauty/joy tier as my vintage mugs (tough competition) but because it goes in the dishwasher it's become the mug I always reach for (busy girl's best friend).

Clay at Home kit

Fun with friends!


Group fun and connection: An afternoon with Winterwares Clay at Home

Our group of 6 purchased enough clay for each of us to create a number of pieces.
Chatting and enjoying the great smooth texture of Winterwares clay was relaxing fun and gave us a delightful way to connect and share ideas.
We all agree that having our pieces glazed by Winterwares as part of the price is a great bonus!

Perfect little vase

This vase is perfect for the single roses from our garden. Pretty and useful.

Breakfast Set
Carol Chaloner
Breakfast Treat!

I recently purchased the cute breakfast set for myself. Just love all the pieces which were included, especially the gorgeous mug! The bowl is exceptional for holding my porridge and keeping it warm. I look forward to using it with muesli and fresh fruit very soon. The side plate is just the right size for my morning toast.
Thank you Winterwares and of course Simone!

Hold on to Relaxation Therapy!

I recently purchased the most beautiful mugs from Winterwares; one being the lovely soft pale pink and the other was the white speckled mug which was part of the breakfast set.

I could never have imagined just how amazing it has been to drink from these mugs. I doubt I will ever use my other crockery. My chai, lattes and especially the occasional hot chocolate, taste so much better and it feels so comforting holding these gorgeous mugs! Definite therapy!!

I highly recommend you treat yourself… and others you feel are in need of something really special!

Thank you Simone!
