Calling all indoor plant collectors, beginners to budding botanists. Join us for an experience where the botanical meets modern art!

Kubist Design finds fun and magic in combining air plants (tillandsia) with a selection of hand built, modern clay hanging planters for your little green pals.

Tillandsia are an exciting and diverse group of aerophyte plants in the Bromeliacae family. Many species are sculptural beauties in their own right. They are usually well suited to indoor locations, requiring indirect sunlight and just a spritz or bathe 1-2 times per week depending on the species.

Pottery workshop review by Emily King

Jodie Amico May 2022

Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon. The process wasn’t what I expected - the anticipation was followed by amazement, wondering how the different techniques would turn out. There were more than enough art supplies and tools- enough for me to make several more pieces in my own time. I would also like to acknowledge the excellent quality of all products supplied! The plants arrived healthy and the selection was stunning. Our teacher was great! She had excellent knowledge of the process and guided us through the endless possibilities! She gave us suggestions for keeping happy plants. The class size (3) worked really well. The conversations, laughs and creations made a wonderful afternoon.

(I’m still working on my final touches-I’ll be sure to send a photo.

Barbara Turner Mar 2022

Thanks Gina! Really enjoyed creating and decorating the clay planters with you. And now looking forward to making some more and implementing a few more of the decorative techniques you suggested.

Had great fun doing this class . Everyone nice and learnt 2 different techniques to do .
Teacher very patient kept checking everyone at stages allowing us to have a break etc if wanted . Explained to us the different plants used in our planters how to care for them and watering etc . Also some great tips and ideas for other things to do with polymers clay . I had taken little longer softening kneading polymers clay with hands but was pretty pleased turned out fantastic. Also told how to make earrings jewellery etc and baking times and explained process how polymers should be after baking . I have made coasters as well as had plenty left over to do other things . Thankyou everyone I felt welcome even though not experienced with camera as such turning on so most of class I watched them doing theirs comparing mine trying to make same .
Cannot praise teacher enough as I was one hour early for class and didn't rush through cos difference in time zones lol. . Learnt about Sydney from other people in class which was quite fascinating also as I never been there.
Thanks for fantastic class

I found the class very interesting and enjoyable, and have learnt a new hobby. The act of moulding the clay by hand is very therapeutic. I really liked the fact that the instructor gave us other ideas that we could use the clay for, and even included glitter and earring findings in the kit. I also like the fact that you can bake what you make in your own oven. The instructions were clear and precise and you could go at your own pace.

Such a fun afternoon. Very therapeutic moulding the clay and then with the use of the added colour producing amazing art forms. Gina, my instructor was very friendly and engaging, providing me with clever ideas for both making clay pots and experimenting with jewellery. I would recommend this class, especially for those wanting to explore their creative side. Thank you Gina.

A very enjoyable class, it was conducted in an easy way, plenty of information to assist us in completing our task. Really enjoyed the different marbling and terrazzo effect on the pots. The teacher is very relaxed in her presentation and made it easy (even when I made a couple of mistakes, would recommend the class to anyone)
Thanks very much Billie Kempton

Gina is a fantastic teacher, very knowledgeable and patient. The ladies thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make the Clay Planters from scratch, as well as learning about all the different plants that can go in them. They are all delighted to have something that they have made themselves and can display in their home with pride.
Thank you Gina :-)

There were no issues trying to keep up, we could easily work at a comfortable pace.

A great experience

Thanks to our teacher, Gina, for a great clay pot class!
We had a group of five friends away at a hinterland retreat house and we enjoyed our crafty afternoon via zoom.

Gina is a wonderful teacher and her class was so much fun. The kit was beautifully presented and I had a truly wonderful afternoon of learning and fun.

Abbey Hay Jun 2020

We had the best experience with our teacher. Unfortunately due to COVID our Bento box was a little delayed in arriving to Tasmania. But our teacher was so accommodating in rescheduling until the box arrived. This was a Mother’s Day gift for my Nan. She has the best time creating the hanging planters. With a teacher who was very kind and patient teaching an old girl new tricks. Thanks so much for a fantastic class

Gina was super lovely, patient and friendly! She even did a private class for us, because Tess' box didn't arrive in time. We had a wonderful afternoon learning about air plants, sharing stories and making polymer clay planters. I was also really impressed with how many little extra goodies/decorations Gina popped in the box for us - made it all the more unique and special! Thanks Gina!
