Looking for creative things to do in Sydney? Over two hours, in our beautiful art studio in Surry Hills, your experienced teacher, Irina from imakesculptures, will demonstrate how to create textured leaf-shaped plates or platters using clay.

With just a few, simple hacks you will be able to make this perfectly decorative pottery for your own home. Throughout the class, multiple textures of leaves and laces will be offered for you to use on your piece in the class.

You will also have exclusive access to large lotus leaf-shaped moulds, made by your teacher from real and rare leaves so that you can create your own fully functional, large table centrepiece.

This class is scheduled with a limited number of people so that everyone gets a chance to ask questions and your teacher can provide personalised tips and tricks on how to build shape and texture. You will build one shape in this class and learn insider skills and tips sculpting, glazing and firing ceramics.

Please note:

  • Everything made from ceramic must be fired in ceramic kilns.
  • You will receive guidance on where and how to do it in Sydney

Another option is to choose an air-drying clay at the checkout. This clay does not require firing, it can look the same as the real ceramics, but it will never be as sturdy and strong as ceramics fired at 1100 degrees. Must be sealed with a professional sealant for waterproof, not appropriate for tableware. Yet, if you want to take your piece home without having to do any extra work, for decorative purposes, then this clay is the best idea for you.

Both clays have their advantages and disadvantages, you may change your mind on the day of the workshop and pay on the spot fee.



Aside from this class, this teacher also has the following coming up:

Hi, I'm Irina.

I like to introduce myself as a sculptor, although I'm engaged in different art disciplines too. I have never had another profession, nor have I wanted one. I fell in love with three-dimensional art at a very early age which came to me naturally, as I was born in a family of artists. It was the world I've grown up in, a measure of value around me.

I have graduated from Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture, and with a bit of luck, I had a chance to work internationally and gain great experience in different industries and media. Cooperating with professionals from other creative fields has perfectioned my skills and broadened the views of my artistic expression.

I have tried to gather all the projects I am engaged in on this website, showcase it, sell and teach my art. Always open for the new projects with fellow creatives, just get in touch.
