Rowley’s long career is visible in the confidence of his ceramic work, instilled by decades of hands-on making, glazing, and firing. This, combined with over twenty years of teaching visual arts at a tertiary level, make his workshops informative, engaging and enriching experiences.

Some ceramic experience is preferred for those attending Rowley's workshops. If you are a practicing ceramic artist, ceramics student, ceramics educator or you have some ceramics experience, his workshops are suitable for you. 

All workshops and classes are held at Quixotica’s studios, 151 Musa Vale Road, Cooroy.

Rowley's workshops and classes for early 2022 are now SOLD OUT. See the links below to join a wait list for the workshop of your choice. We'll then let you know when spaces are open for bookings.

In the meantime, if you are new to ceramics, check out workshops at The Butter Factory in Cooroy to join a beginners' class with our friend Michael Ciavarella and/or practice making with clay in the studio there.
