Hand Building with Clay Workshop

How to hand build with clay



3 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $145


Learn how to hand build your own ceramic wares, get your hands dirty and walk away with the satisfaction that you’ve created something you can use every day!

Learn the basics of hand building with clay; pinching, slab, coiling and joining to create a whole range of pieces from cups and bowls to ring holders and spoons… the possibilities are endless!

Your pieces will be high fired and a choice of Daisy’s coloured glazes will be available to adorn your creations for their final firing.

This class is suitable for beginners or those wishing to play further with clay without a long-term commitment to a course.

Please note: This class requires at least eight 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
    • Stoneware Clay to create 3-4 smaller pieces or 2 larger creations!
    • Tools and textural material to play with.
    • Underglazes to decorate with.
    • Coloured or transparent glaze for glaze firing
    • Firing service

Note – All clay pieces will be glazed and fired following the workshop. You will be able to pick up your pieces from Work-shop approximately 2-4 weeks later or we can have them delivered to you for an additional fee. Students will be able to choose their preferred option on the day.

What to bring

Clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty in!

A creative mind open to the possibilities of clay!

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a nice gift for her, gift for mum, anniversary gift or Xmas gift.

Having studied fine art in Scotland, Daisy moved to London to pursue a career in the arts. After working for arts charities and organizations she went travelling and fell in love with ceramics. On returning she took a course in ceramics and from there has built up her practice and business.

Recently moving to Melbourne, her practice is very evolving and growing from new experiences and environments around her. The landscapes and natural environments around her influence her work every day, drawing textural and colour inspiration for each collection.

Her work is stocked in independent shops across Australia and the UK, as well as being featured in publications and used by food stylists across the world.

We participated on this workshop with three ladies and we enjoyed it a lot! Daisy was very easy going and helpful to make ourselves great pots! It was more difficult than we thought. We almost ran out of time, but Daisy did everything she could to make everyone succeed and to make sure everyone left with a good feeling about their creations.

Cienelle Josue • Mar 2020


Daisy was very friendly. She demonstrated the techniques well and gave everyone equal amounts of attention. Materials were good, clay was very soft, and I thoroughly enjoyed painting with the slip colours and patterns. Social distancing between the seats was a plus. Would highly recommend the class.

Nancy Tran • Mar 2020


Super fun and relaxing class. Daisy helped everyone to make some pretty good looking pieces, looking forward to picking up mine!

Ashleigh Ruffo • Mar 2020

Susan Woodward • Feb 2020

Marina Reedy • Feb 2020


Daisy was an excellent teacher and it was a very enjoyable experience! She gave plenty of individual time with each person and was very supportive of any idea we wanted to create. I would definitely recommend this to any beginners interested in learning basics for clay.

Betty Karikis • Feb 2020


So much fun! Loved every moment and excited to see the final pieces we created!

Sian • Feb 2020


Daisy was a lovely teacher who explained the various techniques clearly and easily. She was very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable asking for help. I'm very excited to get my mug and planter back once they are fired and glazed :)

Alyce Stampa • Jan 2020


Really good teacher with simple and clear direction. Super helpful and encouraging right throughout the class.
They've clearly got the class down to a fine art with the perfect amount of time, people, and materials.
And the cherry on top is a beautiful friendly dog to make arriving into a room full of strangers an absolute joy instead of awkward and scary.

Fun and informative class. Daisy gave very clear instructions and lots of hands-on helpful support throughout the class. I am really happy with my pottery pieces and gained lots of confidence over the 3 hours.

A fun hands on workshop where you'll learn a bunch of new skills

Vanessa Kong • Jan 2020


The class was great! Instructions are clear. Always be able to provide practical help and advice.

Heather Rowe • Jan 2020


The teacher was very upbeat and encouraging.
Materials provided were excellent.
I was lucky I got a 4 hour carpark nearby.
Looking forward to seeing my masterpiece (haha)
A very therapeutic class, I could have played with the clay all day.

Dan • Dec 2019


Had a really good time in this class, Daisy is a fantastic teacher and was very good at offering advice and helping resolve my many mishaps. The only thing I wish was there was more paint so that I didn't have to wait for the rest of the class to use it before I could and thus not get a chance to do what I wanted.

Brenna Kinnaird • Dec 2019


Had a great time at this workshop run by Daisy. Really fun and friendly class, great social atmosphere + creative environment.

Daisy was an awesome teacher, she did a really good job of explaining all the methods given the time as well as giving lots of 1 on 1 assistance and help.

I made 3 pieces, looking forward to seeing how they turn out.

Would definitely recommend this class.

Jessica Golder • Dec 2019


Great class and Daisy did a great job spending time with each student. Can’t wait to see my final pieces!

Samantha Smith • Dec 2019


Really enjoyable workshop. Daisy was a great teacher, clear instructions and engaging demonstrations. Supportive and extremely helpful.

Elizabeth Lodders • Dec 2019


Class and Daisey were fantastic.
Felt too rushed at the end. Needed more paint so that you weren’t waiting for it leaving you with less time. Also needs different size paint brushes.

Lucy Kennett • Dec 2019


Daisy was wonderful! So patient and knowledgeable. Class allowed for a lot of creative freedom.
