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.

Linh Dinh


Linh was born in Hanoi, Vietnam and moved to Melbourne in 2007. She started to collect ceramic pieces from some local Australian artists about nine years ago and found an interest in clay.

Linh spends her night times mostly creating ceramic pieces by using hand-building techniques such as coiling, slabbing and carving. She has been working with different kinds of clay such as earthenware, stoneware and porcelain, however stoneware in particular, interests her because of its durable and dense stone-like quality.

Linh loves making vessels and boobs! Each of them is unique and not identical, just like us - carries our own beauty.
