Learn how to make your own unique mug in this Sydney workshop! You will discover so many possibilities of building that perfect mug without using a pottery wheel.

Your mug can have a handle or not, be tall and slim or wide and short, with a belly or without. And it can also be in your favourite colours inside and out.

Your teacher Irina will demonstrate making a unique texture pattern or marble effect and a special shape pottery piece. As shown in the photos, the options are numerous.

You will be supplied with sufficient materials to build your mug and to apply the amount of colourants to your wet piece, prior to firing.

Your teacher will also instruct you on how and where to fire your piece and all the rest you need to do to complete your perfectly functional mug and be able to drink your morning tea or coffee from your art piece. It does feel great drinking from something hand-built!

Please note: Everything made of ceramic must be fired in ceramic kilns. The colour that you see inside of the mug is a glaze. Glazing comes after the first firing and must be fired again. Firing is cheap and you will get the information on where to do it during the class.

You are welcome to attend Irina's online glazing and firing class after this one, but during this class, you will learn the basic rules on how to proceed with completing your mug.

Hi, I'm Irina.

I like to introduce myself as a sculptor, although I'm engaged in different art disciplines too. I have never had another profession, nor have I wanted one. I fell in love with three-dimensional art at a very early age which came to me naturally, as I was born in a family of artists. It was the world I've grown up in, a measure of value around me.

I have graduated from Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture, and with a bit of luck, I had a chance to work internationally and gain great experience in different industries and media. Cooperating with professionals from other creative fields has perfectioned my skills and broadened the views of my artistic expression.

I have tried to gather all the projects I am engaged in on this website, showcase it, sell and teach my art. Always open for the new projects with fellow creatives, just get in touch.
