Memorable experience

We had the most special afternoon at Winterwares learning new pottery skills in a warm, friendly and fun environment. We will treasure the memories for years to come.

Make a Mug or a Vase
Austen Anderson
Fun and creative morning with old and new friends!

My good friend and I celebrated my birthday with a pottery workshop at Winterwares. What a treat. The studio is thoughtfully decorated and the pottery making was fun, relaxing and mindful. Really looking forward to seeing my finished vase. Highly recommend you treat yourself or a friend to one of these fabulous workshops, thank you for a very special few hours Simone :)

Spouse Date

My husband and I had an amazing time spending our Sunday afternoon making salad bowls. Simone was beyond accommodating from the moment we walked in. She made the process painless for people who have never done pottery before. She helped just enough throughout to make sure we had a great end product. Give it a try if you're looking for a relaxing and fun afternoon.

I completed two workshops with two different work teams at Winterwares. In both workshops, Simone created a wonderful atmosphere, the activities and conversation flowed so seamlessly, and it was great fun too. The studio is a lovely space where you can truly relax, disconnect from work and enjoy the company of your colleagues/friends. And the retail shop is just mint.

My partner and I love the workshops at Winterwares. It's a great opportunity to switch off and create for a couple hours. Simone always makes the courses enjoyable and informative. We will back again, and again!

We are massive fans of Winterwares!

My daughter has attended 2 x kids holiday workshops which we absolutely loved, and which lead to us celebrating her 9th birthday with a private workshop with 7 of her friends. Our experience at Winterwares has been nothing but supreme and we cant thank Sim and Anna enough.

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 !

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!

Modern Kintsugi
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!

Bud Vase
Perfect little vase

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