Join Bowerbird Collection's Peta Sweatman in her element - the ceramic studio - and learn how to paint a beautiful ceramic plate of your own.

In this beginner-friendly class, Peta focuses on the key techniques of brushwork and banding as she guides you through painting her simple but effective patterns. You will get the opportunity to choose your glaze colour and paint a design along with Peta, or branch out and try a different pattern.
