label $190 (or 4 payments of $47.50 Afterpay)

Light up your Japanese name for all to see with this relaxing, hands-on pottery workshop with Alvin Alejo in Brisbane!

Guided by Alvin, you'll learn how to sculpt an elegant piece of pottery that can be used in the garden, entrances, pathways and decks where the sun touches it. You'll make the lantern out of clay before it is glazed and fired in the kiln.

The writing is in Japanese characters using the maker's name or an uplifting word such as happiness, love, peace, harmony etc. The total height of your ceramic piece is about 30 cm.

Its small solar panel generates power during sunny hours and radiates light through the name carved in it at night. The duration of its light depends on the power generated by the sun on its panel.

Enjoy the relaxing and mindful practice of hand building pottery and take home a welcome and beautiful lantern for your home!

Knowledge required
Beginners welcome.
What you'll get

I like so much to work with my hands since my younger years which made me become skilful in many crafts. I am also knowledgeable in many other crafts which I have done in the past and is still doing them as needed, such as: furniture making, boat building, paddle making, furniture restorations, polishing, wood turning, metal crafts and Tai Chi.

I have a shed/studio where I do my personal works.

I am an active member of North Pine Pottery club, North Pine Trade and Foundry club and North Brisbane Lapidary club. I learn and share my other skills through these clubs.
I had been in Furniture Making business and is on Jewellery Making at the moment.
