School Holiday Ceramics

These school holidays our ceramics workshops will focus on painting a pre-made bisqueware vessel while learning the fundamentals of planning, design and drawing to assist them in creating a fun and functional piece of pottery. Their piece will then be fired with clear glaze and will be a wonderful keepsake that is a food safe plate, bowl or pencil holder ready to use in the home.

Online Workshops

We will be hosting several one-to-two-hour online workshops each day. All workshops will be taught in real-time and have been designed by award-winning artists for easy participation at home.From as little as $20 per workshop, the whole household can get involved.
