'I couldn't stop crying the entire time. '
- Some pathetic loser
*Welcome to my post-covid workshops! They run just as they always have with the addition of space around you, a cute mask when required and that vague background smell of hand sanitiser that we have all come to love. The studio also looks a little different now to accommodate spacing but it's still the same warm vibe.*
It's come to my attention that people want to work on the wheel but it can be hard to commit to a course, so here is my solution!
From 12 - 4 pm on Fridays, you'll have the chance to come to the studio and cruise into the arvo covered in mud.
The 4 hour time frame can be used how you like and includes some casual tutelage on the wheel, throwing or turning or hand-building.
This is open for anyone that has a bit of a grip on making on the wheel or hand-building, not for beginners. If you are fresh to clay I recommend my intro workshop.
- Clay can be purchased on the day at $25 for 10kgs, clay can be brought from home but all traces will need to return home with you on the day.
- Work can be stored and be left to dry but will need to be collected within 10 days. objects left longer than 10 days will be recycled back into school clay.
- Finished work can be fired at $5 per kg post-firing.
- Bisqueware can be stored if book a glaze workshop to finish your pieces.
There are 4 spaces available :)
Booking is final and non-refundable. Classes usually book out quite quick and someone else might have potentially loved your spot, so it's important to make sure you get there - you can nominate a friend to come instead if you like! If a lockdown occurs the class will be postponed until restrictions ease.
You've got to have close toed-shoes in the studio
Wear something you can get dirty
Long nails can very easily damage your work and make it difficult to make anything, something to consider if you're about to get that SNS.
Covid safety measures are in place that means that you need to: BYO towel, masks when required.
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
