A Little About
Classes and workshops.
In my workshop in the bush I give sculpting workshops for people who like to make. You don't need experience, but you do need enthusiasm, and a lack of fear of getting dirty!
There are a few possibilities- depending on wishes and needs, and ongoing classes are certainly possible as well.
Workshops for people who are staying in our guesthouse;
Often it works the best if you stay a few days- to do the longer workshop on your first day.
I can then make sure the work dries, and you can colour it yourself, with underglazes. Sometimes this doesn't work out- and I colour the work as well.
I will finish it off with a clear glaze and fire it.
When finished, we can arrange pick up, delivery or postage at cost.
A pot- can be used for plants, or for anything you can use a pot for :-) We can use a few basic technique which are very fun to learn- so the look of your pot is totally in your hands. You can choose the glaze, and I can glaze the pot for you, or you can do this in a second session. variation of clays available
the workshop will take 2-2.5 hours. This is $150 including all materials and costs.
Option 2; an animal based on pinch pots. This an amazing simple technique in which you can create an animal with texture. Bringing a few photos help, or I can bring prints- and I have lots of books for inspiration. Its often surprising what you can do with clay, and as a sculptor I can help you create a personal expression in your animal. The workshop will take 2-2.5 hrs on the first day. 30-40 on the second session. Including all materiel and other costs; $150.
Option 3; A birdbath with ornament. See option 2, but I prepare a birdbath for you, that you can decorate with texture, or with underglaze.
cost with all materials and costs included- $200.
*if your work needs to be posted, I can arrange this at cost.
If 4 people or more ate attending a workshop- everyone gets a 10% discount.
