Interested in learning the art of hand-building ceramics? Come along to this four-part course to learn a variety of clay hand-building techniques as you create some gorgeous one-of-a-kind ceramics.

If you can't attend the entire course, come along to one, two or three workshops by selecting the casual drop-in option at checkout!

When booking, you can choose to attend either an individual class or all four classes at a discounted rate. If you would like to attend the whole four-week series, choose one of the class dates in the "booking options" section and click "book". On the checkout page, choose the "all four classes" ticket to attend the whole four-week series at a discounted total price!

Your ceramicist and friendly teacher Linh Dinh will be covering the following each week of the course.

August 5th: Bud vase set of two - pinching technique
In the first class of this hand-building series, Linh will focus on the pinching technique! It's a simple technique but it is a fantastic way to develop your clay skill and requires a bit of practice to perfect. 

August 12th: Fruit or salad bowl - coiling technique
In this class, Linh will be focusing on coiling - the most versatile of the hand-building techniques! It's considered a slow method but also very therapeutic.

August 19th: Kurinuki Yunomi/tea bowl - Japanese sculpturing technique
In this class, Linh will guide you through a special Japanese sculpturing technique - kurinuki! Kurinuki is a Japanese method of carving a pot from a block of clay. It is a slow and contemplative process to shape your piece.

August 26th: Bento lunch box - slab technique
In this last class of the course, Linh will focus on the slab method, along with coiling. This is an exciting way to create shapes that could never be produced using a potter's wheel or that would be difficult to achieve if you are doing hand construction using coils.

You can decorate your pieces with Linh's underglazes and slips as well in these classes. Your piece will be fired twice by Linh and you will receive your amazing creation a few weeks after the class! You will be emailed when the piece is ready for collection from Guild of Objects. 

Please note:
Guild of Objects reserves the right to cancel any scheduled workshop. The reasons this may occur are (a) if a workshop does not reach the minimum number of students or (b) an Artist or Workshop Facilitator falls ill. In the unfortunate circumstance of a workshop being cancelled, students will be notified at least 2 days before the commencement of the workshop and a credit note will be issued to be used at a later date. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds if the class is cancelled.

The Guild of Objects is a Guild for all makers, artists and creatives; whether you are an everyday creative, an experienced creative, an “I need a career shift” creative, someone pursuing their creative journey as a side hustle, or wanting to explore your innate creativity for the first time.

Our mission is to connect you; the creative, with the skills that you need to progress your creativity as well as your creative practice.

In pursuit of our support for all creatives, the Guild runs an extensive number of workshops for all those seeking to connect with their own innate creativity. All our workshops are artist lead and small, we take a maximum of 10 enrolments to give participants the opportunity to let their creative juices flow whilst connecting with some newfound friends around our Guild table!

Whether you're coming into the Guild of Objects to purchase handcrafted artisan wares, attend one of our creative workshops with a local artist or to learn business skills from our experts, we welcome you to our humble home in Hardware Lane, Melbourne.

Our hope is that when you leave our home; that whatever you purchased will be not just your new favourite thing but it will still be your favourite in 10 years’ time; the experience you had and what you created in the workshop at the Guild will leave you talking about how nourished and inspired you feel with your friends, and what you learned in your coaching session empowers you and your business, so much so that even your competitors are talking about your businesses success!
