Hand-built pottery: clay slab building
Sat. 15 October 2016, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm AEST
About the workshop
In this beginners workshop you'll learn the slab building techniques to create a small candle holder. We will teach you how to use lace and flowers to decorate pottery and make a ceramic piece you will treasure forever. We'll fire your creation for you to be picked up at a later date.
What you'll get:
- We'll fire your pot for you so you can collect your very own finished pot at a later date
- The tools and equipment you need to to make your coil pot
- Tea, coffee, juice and snacks
Please wear closed-in shoes and clothes you don't mind getting a bit dirty (we'll provide aprons)!
