If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in NSW. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you.

Come and get your hands dirty! This crash course in the basics of hand-building will open up the wonderful world of ceramics to you. Experience the satisfaction of making something with your hands and enjoy a playful morning being creative.

You will learn the basics of hand-building with clay – pinching, slab, coiling, how to join clay to produce bigger pieces, as well as applying underglazes to decorate your piece. With this technique, you can make ceramic bowls, teacups, planters, jewellery holders and more! After the class your pieces will be finished in a clear glaze and kiln fired, making it usable and food-safe. Note that you will pick up your fired piece on another day.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of 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

Kaila was an incredible and lovely teacher. She taught us everything we needed to know to make some rad pinch pots. No idea was dumb. She supported and encouraged each person’s unique creativity. It brought so much joy to my week. Keen to pursue clay making further and excited to get my pot back when it‘s ready. Xx.

The teacher was wonderful, and the class was in a fun and relaxed environment. The pieces are ready about 4 weeks after you complete the class, as they need to be fired. We can’t wait to see what they look like when finished :)

Great way to spend an evening! We learned how to make pinch pots and add decorations/detail to this. For me it was a fun way to destress after a stressful week at work. I think I've definitely found a new hobby! I can't wait to see how my pieces are after they've been fired in the kiln!

Kaila was great, really helpful in what does and doesn't work. Lovely to get tips of how to make things independently as well :)
