'Oh yeah, a lovely a nice time, yup, just fab.'

- A person who did a class once

Welcome to my post-covid workshops! They run just as they always have with the addition of space around you and your wheel, a cute mask and that background smell of hand sanitizer that we have all come to love. The studio also looks a little different now to accommodate spacing but its the same warm vibe.

These 2-hour, weekly workshops are perf if you've already had a few classes and are ready to improve and broaden your skillz or if you're just beginning. The world is your oyster. 

You'll be part of a small group of 5 to ensure each student gets some good one-on-one time and it's great if you've wanted to learn with mates.

If you wanted to book in some practice on a wheel to follow up your classes, have a chat to me about studio access! Flick me an email at hey@james-lemon.com

It's important to me that students feel they can come back and practise their skills so all students get 15% off their classes after their first course as well as open studio bookings. 

 The weeks will look like this:

  • Wedging and clay preparation
  • Throwing - The part where you do the pretty Instagram video thing. We'll be covering some basic forms like cylinders and cups, bowls and plates the whole shebang! 
  • Turning -  finishing your work and making sure everything is perfect for the first firing
  • Glazing - making your vessels pretty and unique

    The nitty-gritty:

    • These classes are non-refundable, someone else might have potentially loved your spot so it's important to make sure you get there or swap with a friend!

    • You've got to have close toed-shoes

    • Wear something you can get dirty 

    • Long nails can very easily damage your work and make it difficult to throw which is something to consider!

    • The time frame for your finished work should be around 1-3 weeks, if pick-up isn't ideal we can discuss postage

    • This course includes 2.5 kgs of fired work, you can make more than this but a charge of $15 per Kg will apply to keep the kiln god happy

    • If you purchase for a gift, please supply name and email of the receiver at checkout.

    • Covid safety measures are in place that means that you need to: BYO towel AND masks.

    • According to health requirements, you'll be adequately spaced and tools and surfaces will be sanitised between sessions.

    • You'll need to sanitise your hands and sign in on entry  

    • and you WILL enjoy yourself.

      Where?

      • New Classes will be held in my new Northcote studio. 41 Arthurton Rd, next to The Herbert Cafe. It's directly opposite the Northcote train station and a very small walk from the high street Tram line
