Learn the techniques of hand-building clay and make some cute ceramics to take home, at this creative and relaxing workshop in Melbourne!

In this beginners hand-building workshop, you will have the chance to get your hands dirty and make something lovely for yourself or for a friend! You will learn different hand-building techniques like pinching and slabbing to make pieces such as cups, planters, or spoons.

You will have the opportunity to work with different stoneware clays and the option of using coloured underglaze to make simple patterns. Tea and a special homemade treat will be provided as you work.
 
Your finished pieces will be fired and glazed for you, ready for collection at Think Thornbury two to four weeks after the class.

Aliça runs RARA Studio, a Melbourne-based ceramics business. She makes unique, hand-built objects for the home and to wear. Aliça has a background in fine art and has a love for natural materials and objects, especially the look and feel of handmade work. She originally studied ceramics with a Japanese ceramicist but is primarily self-taught. Each piece she makes is one of a kind, with the marks of the maker celebrated, forming the texture of the work.

She sells her ceramics online, with stockists across Australia and overseas. You can also find her at markets like Big Design Market and the Melbourne Ceramics Market. Her work has been featured in Frankie, Yen and Country Style Magazine.

Aliça works locally from her studio in Thornbury, with her three studio helpers, Teti (dog), Claudia and Sybil (cats).
