Hand Building Clay Class: Ceramic Servingware

Learn how to hand build ceramic tableware



2 hours 15 mins Class size 1 to 24     label $115


Impress your friends and family with beautiful handmade clay tableware. Over the course of two and a half hours, you will be introduced to the wonderful possibilities of working with clay to make beautiful bespoke serving ware.

Learn how to roll slabs of clay, slump, mould, and decorate using stamping and incising techniques.  Personalise with the beautiful colour palette of raw clay with white and/or black. Pieces will be high fired to make them food safe and will be returned to the space and made available for pick up at a later date.

This class is suitable for any skill level so enrol now and have fun with such an addictive tactile material as clay!

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.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

What to bring

Just your love of ceramics and your desire to play!

Vanessa has always been an ‘arty soul’, growing up in Byron Bay and always dabbling in art and craft. She holds separate tertiary qualifications in Design, Visual Arts and Teaching, and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills.

As a practising ceramic artist for the past 13 years, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour.

Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. She weaves her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking. Creating series of themed ceramic works, Vanessa uses either hand-building or slip casting techniques and always strives to leave a trace of the hand on her work.

Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

Hand Building Clay Class: Ceramic Servingware review by Tanya Rolfe Sydney

Jane Gauci Jun 2020


We really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. We made some lovely products. The only thing that I will say was that I felt a bit pushed for time. I would have liked to have a bit of a chance to fix what I was making but I felt like I was scrambling and I didn't get to use up all the clay. We were rushed. Otherwise I would love to do it again. The teacher explained techniques well.

Shenali Fernando Jun 2020


Really enjoyed the class. Teacher was excellent. Would have been nice to have a bit more time (potentially restricted due to covid so understandable)

Martina Fuchs Jun 2020


Good teaching, very informative. Very covid cautious. Safe and welcoming environment. Trying to reach the word limit.

Mia Weight Mar 2020


Our teacher was amazing, very informative and brilliant at what she does. The class itself was very good value for money, considering all of the time and work that Vanessa puts in to get all of our ceramics finished. The quality of the product was also very good. The space was a great size and I’m really excited to see how our serving-ware turns out! Definitely recommend this workshop.
