Experiences galore at Happs Pottery + Icon Honey! See a working pottery studio, take a pottery lesson and enjoy delicious free tastings of incredible honey!
Happs Pottery features the work of seven potters in a working studio: Myles, Finn, Denise, Maggie, Jacob and Clarice. They create a range of pots that are just right for a sweet little thank you gift or luxurious wedding present. The glazes in contemporary styles decorate platters, mugs, keep cups, bowls, plates and beautiful ornamental pieces.

All of the pottery is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. Leave knowing you are taking home something that was made with loving and muddy hands.

Many people want to experience making their own special 'pot.'  Pottery Experiences are available as one and half hour workshops, and there is an option to have the pot glazed and fired. Bookings at the Happs Pottery website. 

Icon Honey recognises the highly valued and iconic West Australian honey varietals. The honey collected is from their own beehives and a network of friendly beekeepers. Try it and you will see it is incredibly delicious! From the renowned molasses flavoured Jarrah to the familiar favourite Redgum, light and sweet Karri to rich flavoured Blackbutt, very local tangy Peppi (from the Peppermint tree) to the winter Wildflower from the north – sweet and floral. There is something for everyone... and your family and friends. 

Make sure you take a bit of time to have a look at the bee wall while visiting. The locally made bespoke wall reveals the bees as they work in a hive. Maybe you will even get to spot the queen. The honey is available through the Icon Honey website. 

Children are very welcome to play on the trampoline, shoes off and no sticks! Supervision is definitely required for little kids as it is quite high off the ground but big kids including adults use at own risk! There is also a rustic rope swing where you can pretend to be Captain Jack Sparrow swinging off a mast… or Tarzan. Just don’t bump into the tree! 

There are two friendly Jack Russell dogs, Lola and Otis, who will often come and greet you.   

They recently completed a huge corporate order for Ramsay Health Care which was a great challenge. They hope to see you in their studio soon!

"Our happiest call to fame is that visitors say they found out about us from their friends...because they have our pottery and honey in their homes. Come and visit, we’d love to show you around."

My partner and I chose to do a pottery class together to try something different to the usual touristy activities while we were on holiday down south. The experience was well priced and we were looking forward to trying our hand at a new skill. We were not disappointed. I believe Harry taught us in an intimate two person pottery class which allowed us to basically have free reign with as many clay pieces as we pleased (time permitting). Though we did not get further than trying to make a bowl, we both loved our experience at Happs. If only we could do more pottery classes like this! We will definitely be back to try our hand at making the vase. We opted for our bowls to be finished by the Happs team and posted to us. We were told this process would take roughly 6 weeks but they were delivered so much quicker than that timeframe. We love the finish on each of our bowls. Well worth the money spent. Before we left Happs we also purchased two mugs that were also handmade by the Happs pottery team and we are obsessed. They are now our favourite mugs in the cupboard as the thick wall of the mug keeps your tea or coffee warm for an extended amount of time compared with your regular, cheap & nasty mug. 10/10 could not recommend trying this place more!

We had a very fun experience doing a pottery class. The instructor was fine, and we all made something we could be proud of. However, price is a big issue here. The pottery experience is expensive. Then to have your pieces baked costs a fair bit on top. I didn't mind paying for it though because it was a unique experience and we would get unique pottery pieces to keep. HOWEVER, nobody told us that pottery shrinks quite significantly when baked - I'm talking roughly half the size of the original piece - so when we picked up our pottery about 7 weeks later I was really disappointed that our pottery pieces were too small to actually use. They look nice, and they can technically function, but if you want to make a usable mug or a bowl you had better make it much bigger than you think you'll need. I would recommend the pottery experience because it is fun and not something you can do every day, but I would not recommend taking the pieces home. Simply not worth the money

A small pottery business doing absolutely beautiful pottery well worth a look. Also if you are lucky enough to be able to have a look at where they do there work it is fascinating to see. The owners are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Go for a visit and buy something.

We had a pottery session with Finn. He was a great instructor, very clear and easy to follow. Also very knowledgeable when asked specific questions and explained in ways that really helped develop technique. A lovely morning out, highly recommended.
