4 hour workshop to create your own gorgeous showstopping centrepiece!

Want to create a show-stopping pottery piece that will take pride of place on your table for your next dinner party?

During this 4 hour workshop (there will be a 15 minute break for tea / coffee / biscuits), you'll be working with 2.5kgs of clay to create a gorgeous platter that you can display and serve food on (clear glaze will ensure that end product is food safe).

  • Make only one large platter with a maximum size of 50cm
  • - 50cm x 25cm wide. So a long narrowish shape. This is the maximum to touch the kiln shelf.
    - 30cm x 30cm wide. This is the bottom of your piece that is sitting on the kiln shelf so you gain a flat surface for your platter to sit on.
  • Personalise your decoration from a selection of 6 colours with a maximum of 3 per platter
  • Final product will include a clear glaze on stoneware clay.
  • Note.  If you have a particular design/style/inspiration in mind, please phone to see if we have an ideal mould available for your construction. (we love out of the box ideas)

This class is great for those who have already done our Clay Experience Workshop, but if you've had a little experience elsewhere, we're open to you joining us in the platter class.

Come alone or with a group, either way, you'll have a blast. We foster a relaxed and laidback creative environment, often with music playing (mostly 80's) and even a resident chicken (Jacquie-O), who often comes to say hi to everyone!

Session times:  10am - 2pm (no late arrival/pick-up please)
Class Dates:  Saturday    8th June 2024 or 13th July 2024
Group sizes:  Limited to 6 per session (minimum 4 for class to proceed)

Attendees will get:

  • All tools, 2.5kg's clay, coloured slip 'glaze', firing.

  • Tea and coffee - although Fonzie Abbot is just across the road for a proper caffeine hit!

  • Four hours of expert teaching and guidance from studio owner, Jude, who has been honing her craft and talent for the past four decades.

Students can pick up their finished pieces a few weeks (could be up to four weeks) after the class as we need to allow this time for the kiln to fill up and your pieces to be fired twice. Your pieces will be food safe.

An email will be sent when your wonderful creation is ready to adorn your dining room table.

Attendees should bring:

  • Old clothes or an apron

  • Closed-toe and slip-proof shoes

  • No jewellery

  • Hair tied up

  • But most importantly - bring your imagination, we know you've got a tonne of amazing ideas in you!

Some experience preferred but if you're an ambitious beginner - we're game if you are!

Please note: Public dates for this class require at least 4 guests to run. In the unlikely event that we don't reach this number, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform you and allow you to get a refund or reschedule, so please watch your email/SMS one day prior to the class.
