Course information

Continuing Clay classes are perfect for people who have some clay skills and are developing their own style and studio practice. Bring along your ideas and our talented teachers will be able to help you bring them to life. Some continuing classes offer extra support for people with disabilities. All our Continuing Clay teachers are experienced potters and are skilled at teaching both wheelthrowing and handbuilding techniques. Teachers may focus on a particular theme or technique for the term that reflects the interests of students in the class

About the artist

Maryke Henderson loves to teach and share the knowledge that she has gained over the 38 years of exploring clay with her students. Before moving to Canberra in 2002 to complete a Bachelor of Arts (Visual) degree with Honours, she taught ceramics at the New England Institute of TAFE (Tamworth Campus), during which time she attended many workshops, conferences and courses around the state to improve her skills and knowledge.
As well as her passion for pottery, Maryke’s love for preparing tasty meals for friends and family compliments her practice. Form and function are an intrinsic part in her design process, and the pots that she uses to present the food enhance the pleasure of sitting around the table sharing both food and conversation.  
Maryke joined the teaching team at Canberra Potters in 2003, during which time she has worked with both children and adults in term classes and teaching short courses.
