Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Also, this class has a flexible cancellation/rescheduling policy, so participants are encouraged not to attend if they are unwell

Ceramics has been described as the new yoga, and if you’re keen to give it a go then this is the workshop for you.

Join other clay curious participants while Tina from Clay by Tina takes you through basic hand building.

You will be given the tools and skills to make up to three pieces from scratch. During the workshop, you will be given the opportunity to apply all sorts of decorating skills from painting underglaze and slip to carving patterns in the clay to your pieces.

All skills learned in the workshop can be applied to your own ceramic practice and will give you the foundation information about working with clay.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get five students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Learn the fundamentals of working with clay, decorating techniques and the ‘rules’ for attaching handles/legs
  • All materials provided, including tools to use in class, plus clay and coloured slips to create up to three pieces per person

Please note:  Tina will take all pieces from the workshop and fire them at her studio. Your pieces will be returned within four weeks of the workshop and you will receive an email when they are ready for collection.

What to bring

Please wear closed toed shoes and some clothes you don’t mind getting dirty

Suitable for

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

Tina is the hands behind Clay by Tina. She took up ceramics as a hobby in late 2014 and within a year had quit her job to become a full-time potter. She has set up a studio at her family hobby farm north of Geelong and spends her days throwing pots among the chooks, llamas and gum trees. Her favourite thing to create is a mug and plant pot, and Tina’s practice is constantly evolving.

What a great way to spend an afternoon. Tina is a fantastic teacher, encouraging us to leave our anxieties at the door and guiding us through the creative process to make some cool hand built ceramics. If all else fails... turn it into a plant palace!

This was a great class!the teacher tina was really kind and picked us right up when we lost hope in our creative abilities!

Eva Paraskevakis • Jan 2020


The hand making clay class with Tina was definitely worth it as we were given 3 hours and lots of very interesting and useful tips from Tina to create whatever we wanted! The tools and clay provided were of a high standard and the work space was also lovely! My partner and I had a great time and can’t wait to collect our pieces and put them to use! We have been inspired to delve more into clay making!!

Really enjoyed the teacher’s chat and encouraging, supportive style. Also loved my take home piece.

Caitlin Ball • Dec 2019


Tina is a great teacher who gave us the freedom to create whilst still teaching us techniques and giving all the guidance we needed to make our ideas come to life! Very cool that I’m just a couple of short hours we were each able to make numerous items. Really recommend this to anyone - clay is so therapeutic and we had an awesome group at the workshop which helped!
