Hazy Tales ‘Clay Club’ offers both term time (see the section above) and holiday classes:
Come be creative in the school holidays at Hazy Tales Studio. You will be given lots of different ideas or come up with your own unique vision. Not only will the kids have fun and enjoy getting their hands messy in the clay, they will also get something to keep from the experience. They can make their creations totally unique with any design and even add their own name or a friends or family name to give as a gift. A fab mixture of fun and creativeness to keep the little ones entertained in the holidays. And not just for the kids – buy an extra ticket and make something yourself! You my stay and watch or drop off. All ages welcome – please text if you need any advice on which class is better for younger or older kids – lots of different pottery and craft sessions available. These sessions will be 2 hours – the days & times are listed at the bottom of the page in the events calendar. Each Session has a different theme.
The Clay Club has exclusive access of the studio during their time period. It is a stylish light filled venue, with floor to ceiling windows & polished concrete floors. We are tucked away in Drysdale on the Bellarine Peninsula, a short 20 minute drive from Geelong.

- Allowing the clay to dry a little before applying underglazes (if there being used).
- The pottery is then stored & dried out slowly & fully for approximately 2/3 weeks dependent on weather.
- All work is bisque fired.

- Each piece is then high temperature kiln fired.
Included in all classes is:
- All clay
