Craftsmanship — do what you love & do it well

In this hand building course, we will teach you how to make your own pottery using slab building techniques. Over four weeks you will also learn how to:

  • Prepare and wedge your clay

  • Create slab built plates & flatware

  • Mix different colour clays - Nerikomi

  • Group project: Make a vase using Nerikomi slabs

Embrace your creative side using our mid fire & stoneware clays. You can also use the studio outside of class during our weekly studio sessions.

Please note

The course fee includes all clay, studio equipment and tools used in each class. There is a separate fee for all work we fire in our kilns. The firing fee is $10 per kilo (roughly 5 small pots), payable when you collect your finished work.
