Hand Building Clay Class: Cups and Bowls

How to make ceramic mugs by hand



2 hours Class size 1 to 25     label $110


Join Vanessa and learn how to make a range of ceramic bowls and cups, ready to be filled with cold weather warmers such as soup, curry, tea and coffee.

Using pinching methods, you can either make a set or a variety of vessels as you desire. Then use black and/or white to decorate your creations to make them truly one of a kind. Your pieces will then be glazed and fired, ready for pick-up from Workshop 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

    • White & Black Underglaze (paint)
    • Students take away 2-3 hand built pieces
    • Offsite Firing Service
What to bring

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.

The teacher was very experienced and good at explaining the skills to make the pottery and how to use our hands to shape it the way we wanted it to go. All of the materials were provided and when my first piece didn’t work out I was provided with some fresh clay which I really appreciated! Thankyou for the experience I will continue to work on the skills that have been provided

Vanessa was very knowledgeable and helpful. She showed by practice which was very helpful. I think she did amazingly covering everything given the time limit.

Vanessa is very good at explaining the techniques . The class is very therapeutic and we really enjoyed it.

Renee Greasley  •  Dec 2020


The class was really fun! Vanessa (the teacher) was knowledgeable and patient, helping us to create our pieces. The only downfall to the class was the time allocated. Another 30minutes would have been perfect, making it less rushed to have our pieces made and decorated.

Teacher was awesome. So knowledgeable and even though there were 16 people there, i still feel like I got personal guidance. The materials were wonderful and I can’t wait to pick up my goodies.

Cassandra Grey  •  Nov 2020


In the year that has been 2020 sitting for 2 hours and making things out of clay was one of the highlights of my year. I was a total beginner and Vanessa was a fabulous teacher who demonstrated techniques well and helped me make some great pieces. I’ll definitely be back

Joyce Cheung  •  Oct 2020


A fantastic, fun class from a friendly professional instructor!
Class is very hands on and it's a great night out idea :)

Annaliese Mitchell  •  Sep 2020


Vanessa was super friendly and relatable and encouraged us to go with the flow and build what we wanted. She warned of common mistakes, but wasn't strict with how we built our cups and bowls. The night flew by and I can't wait to take another class with her.

Hayley Lovelock  •  Sep 2020


We had a light hearted, fun night as absolute beginners to clay building. The teacher was so lovely and helpful, would definitely recommend!

Kalesi Waqa  •  Aug 2020
