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

Rally the troops and ditch the pub. We’ve got your Friday night sorted for the ultimate M8 D8.

Learn basic ceramic hand-building skills from one of Melbourne’s leading ceramicists and create up to three pieces from scratch; pinching, slab, coiling and joining to create a whole range of pieces from cups and bowls to ring holders and spoons… the possibilities are endless! 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.

To get your creative juices going we’ll have delish sangria for you to sip while you get your hands dirty!

Please note your pieces will be taken offsite for glazing and firing and will be ready for collection approximately three weeks after the workshop.

 

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

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.

Thoroughly recommend this class. Tina is a delight and so knowledgable and caters to all levels of experience. Delicious sangria and Reggie the adorable dog made it even better. 10/10!

Our teacher was fabulous spending just the right amount of time exposing a few simple techniques to get us going, before turning up the music & settling us to it! She spent the whole lesson visiting each person supporting them in what they were trying to achieve. She was encouraging & supporting the splash Ning how to get the very best from what we were doing.
I had a blast!

The studio was a wonderfully inviting space and we were treated to an incredible night of sangria and laughs.
Tina made us feel so welcome and at ease with our varying skill levels. She was an absolute delight, as was this class.
