I’ve been here twice with both my kids. Both had a great time and the staff are great. I’ve never done pottery before, who knew it could actually be fun to learn and make things.

FIREBIRD STUDIOS - POTTERS WHEEL SHORT COURSE with Lynda Lehmann. This is the first time I have used a potters wheel and I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment. I just want to keep doing it. Lynda and Bronwyn are amazing. I have learnt so much in this course and would encourage others to do this course. It's really brings your creative side out. So much fun. I think I might have to buy a wheel too.

An amazing pottery studio located in Burleigh. I started with a 2hr workshop and soon fell in love with Firebirds Studios and pottery. I am now on my second 10 week Masterclass. They have such an amazing range of course and workshops that cover all aspects of pottery. The staff are amazing and are keen to share their knowledge. Pottery is addictive, trust me, I know. 😜
