Learn clay hand building techniques at this fun two session pottery course in Melbourne!

This series is ideal for beginners or anyone interested in ceramics without committing to a full term. Workshops are held over a fortnight. When booking, the date selected will be the date of the first workshop.

Learn basic hand-building techniques to create everyday items – such as cups, bowls, plates and vases. Explore different clays, make beautiful pieces to take home and walk away with a new art skill. Let's get our hands dirty!

This workshop gives the opportunity to glaze and colour any work made in the first session. We'll cover a range of surface decoration techniques using brush-on glazes and underglazes. This is an exciting part of the handmade process that will deepen your understanding and appreciation of ceramics.

I'm Amanda, ceramic artist and studio founder of Everyday Clay. My design style is inspired by simple, fun and playful things in life. In my practice, I draw heavily on hand-building techniques to produce small-batch ceramics for the everyday home. I enjoy running workshops in the community as a way of inspiring creativity and a love for handmade things. It's been amazing being part of the creative community and I'm eternally grateful for my students' support for the work I do.
