Join this class to create your very own mug or jug to delight your friends, family - or just yourself every morning with a cuppa!

Over 3 hours, we'll show you how to hand build a gorgeous creation that you can adapt with your own personality. We can walk you through how to create a variety of handles (there are SO many to choose from - take a look at the photo's) and adornments, all to create your very own unique piece.

You'll be working with 'slips', which are coloured clays, to decorate your pieces and you can also work with stencils and textures.

This class is a maximum of 8 people, so you'll be assured of access to Jude's expertise over the duration of the 3 hour class.

You'll walk away with a mug, jug, vase, oil burner, utensil holder, lidded canaster, oil bottles, beer steins, pot planter, etc. etc. whatever takes your fancy.  If you are interested in achieving any of these, prior notice is required with a photograph of something similar so we can be prepared and or let you know if possible with the equipment available.  There are an enormous number of items that can be achieved from the humble cylinder. 

Your creation will be glaze fired to 12020 * C  Stoneware and ready for collection a few weeks after your class - you'll be notified as soon as it's ready!

This is the ideal class to repeat over and over again, so many items that you can create

Knowledge required

Some prior knowledge would be beneficial but not necessary as once you have learnt how to make a cylinder well, you will be capable of making so many interesting projects.

What you'll get

  • All tools, 1kg clay, coloured slip 'glaze', firing.
  • Tea and coffee - although Fonzie Abbot is just across the road for a barista-made caffeine hit!
  • Three 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 dishwasher, microwave, ovenproof and food safe.
  • An email will be sent when your wonderful creation is ready to adorn your table.

 What to bring

  • Old clothes or an apron
  • Closed-toe and slip-proof shoes
