What you'll do

Starting with a studio tour - then I will show forms of what you can create on the pottery wheels I will point to wall charts to help you step by step...We put on aprons & wedge 6 balls of terracotta clay each this will take about 15 minutes...I will demo a basic cup / bowl form on the wheel then its your turn.I am there to help you. Don't worry if you fail - clean the wheel plate and start again - it's all about repetition. {Half time morning tea break on my tropical deck} - you will choose 1 form you want to keep . Now its decorating time & improving on your form by adding more clay maybe for the handle or saucer. Time to add slip- to carve out lines with different tools & under glaze in 6 shade options will add color. Turn your wheel form into wall planters, bird vases or head face pots my studio is full of visual stimulation - you will then write you name on your creation - and fill out a file with the details of what you have made for easy of collection...Still hungry please enjoy more coffee and cake - or read on the tropical deck with a book about art & ceramics. Collection time is 2 weeks away - 100% dry then twice kiln fired with gloss glaze added.

I am a person who is up for a challenge - I look forward to learning something new. With just 5 years of Ceramics / Pottery training via Tafe North in Cairns - I have now taught over 300 people from ages 5-75 in far off remote places as Doomadgee QLD & Melbourne .My home studio has sold works globally to shops & online also the Cairns Regional Gallery. MY life motto is always look on the bright side of life, love hand made, hand touched & a little bit unique. I am not a fan of mass ceramic forms with no soul. I am quick witted, coffee and chocolate addict I love to show you CLAY.
