Choose your own project
Come along on Tuesday nights to make your own clay projects.
Eucalypt Homewares classes are perfect for beginners and complete novices. If you have never worked with clay before please feel very welcome to come and experience the fun and satisfaction of creating something functional with your hands.
In this 6 week course students will choose which project/s they would like to make over the course. It may be dinner plates and bowls, pot planters, mugs, coils vases or a combination of a few things. All the pieces will be hand built in porcelain or stoneware paper clay and decorated with Eucalypt Homewares decals.
The first night we spend time planning and discussing what projects people would like to a make. I will demonstrate a number of techniques and over the following 4 weeks we will build then glaze the pieces. The last week is post firing sanding, a little class party and an opportunity to look at and admire the classes works.
Not sure what to make, but still want have a play and exploration, no worries! On the first night you will find inspiration from other students and with help from me you'll get your project on the way!
Decals are images/patterns printed onto special tissue paper with ceramic inks. They are released from the tissue onto the clay before it is fired in the kiln. Once fired they are permanently attached to the ceramic body, ie they won't wash off! You will learn how to use them in the class no experience is needed.
My decals come in blue, red, green and black, with lots of patterns to choose from (all have been designed by me for my tableware, only students from my classes have the opportunity to use them).
These classes are perfect to enjoy with a group of friends or come along by yourself and meet new ones. They are very social, relaxing and heaps of fun.
Cost includes all clay materials and firing.
Please Note: Tickets are strictly non-refundable nor transferable to another class date. If you can no longer make the class you are welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend.
