Ceramics | Whimsical Sculptures with Myfanwy Gullifer

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Create your own piece of whimsy using hand building techniques in the fun ceramics workshop with Myf Gullifer. Learn tips and tricks from Myf to add character, visual interest, texture, and meaning to your pieces. This is a one off opportunity to work with this highly acclaimed artist whose work is met with rave reviews from public and critics alike.

Colourful, joyous and abundant, Walcha-based artist Myfanwy Gullifer’s quirky ceramic sculptures are inspired by everyday objects and delight the eyes and senses.

In this fun hand-building class you will sculpt and decorate a quirky, whimsical sculpture (about the size of a toaster). No experience necessary, as you will be shown various clay sculpting methods. Draw some patterns or create texture in your design and add colour and personality using underglazes ready for firing in our kilns. Every sculpture will be unique and once glaze fired will be display ready.

Myf Gullifer is represented by King Street Gallery on William

What to expect

This is a two part workshop held over consecutive days. Your tutor, Myf Gullifer, is here to make your experience easy and fun. 

Day 1: 10am-4pm: Sculpt your piece and leave overnight to dry.

Day 2: 10am-1pm: Add additional surface decoration and colour to your work using underglazes, ready for firing in the kiln. 

Your sculpture will be left to dry further before bisque firing. We will then apply a clear glaze for second firing and will get in touch to let you know when it is ready to collect. (approx 3-4 weeks after your workshop.)

  • Learn from the best — "Myfanwy Gullifer is an accomplished ceramicist and textile artist whose work is at once cheeky, irreverent, provocative and very very clever. Gullifer’s subversive use of humour often masks a cutting insightfulness into life, but she is also generous with doling out the irrepressible joy contained within her objects"- Belinda Hungerford, Manager, Curatorial & Exhibitions New England Regional Art Museum
