About the Event

Have you always wanted to explore clay as a medium – and ideally end up with a useful item to enjoy every day at home – or give it to a loved one as a testament to your newfound skill? Have you got very little or no experience with pottery? Are you attracted to clay techniques but don't have the time or financial means to invest in one of the multi-session courses on offer elsewhere?

Then this workshop is for you!

Your tutor Tanja has learned to throw (use a potter's wheel) from master potters in France, her passion is to share the beautiful craft of pottery. In this beginner’s workshops, she will introduce the basic yet 100% successful skills of shaping a ball of clay into a beautiful, durable piece of crockery using nothing but your hands.

You will gain a feel for the clay, create a simple plate or pinch pot (which can be a bowl, vase, or abstract piece of art) and personalise it.

You can either take your artwork home as it is on the day – or you can leave it with Tanja, who will organise for your work to be fired and glazed (included in the price).

This workshop is creative, 100% hands-on, and can potentially get you wet and messy – please dress accordingly :) Clay stains may not wash out of some fabrics.

Limited to 10 participants. Bookings essential.

This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (at education@riverside.org.nz) for any workshop questions or to discuss sponsorship options if you are struggling to meet the workshop fee.
