Book mum a calming yet invigorating hand building pottery class with local pottery experts, Guild Of Objects in Fitzroy. Pottery teacher, Linh Dinh, will lead a small beginners class and teach the group how to build and make a large ceramic vase – or two mini vases if that takes Mum’s fancy. She will learn the basics of building beautiful, organic structures using clay,water, and of course, her own two hands.
This meditative class is the perfect opportunity for your mum to try a new skill while being surrounded by like-minded beginners. There’s no need to worry about any egos being present in the class, as it’s all about having fun in a relaxing and comfortable environment.
One of the best things about learning how to make pottery is that your mum will be able to continue on and improve her skills when she gets home. As long as she has clay and water, she can continue her ceramics journey in her own time, making it a beautiful, mindful and relaxing hobby to sink her hands into.
