Get ready for The Christmas Season

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  workshop students make a large batch of cookie cutter shaped porcelain Christmas decorations. They will be made with beautiful Southern Ice porcelain and decorated with imprinting stamps and/or Eucalypt Homewares decals. They make lovely gifts to give as well as to decorate your own tree, you will make so many that I'm sure you will have enough for both!

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.

  • Students receive 20% off in the Eucalypt Homewares studio shop on the day of class.
  • Morning or afternoon tea is provided with a home baked treat.
  • Classes run for about 3-4 hrs
  • Cost includes all clay materials and firing.

COVID-19 Precautions: When you arrive in the studio please sanitise your hands with the provided hand sanitiser. Please do not attend if you are unwell.

**Collection of your creations will be from the studio a few weeks after the commencement of the class. I will email students when they are ready, advertising when the studio is open.

 

 

Please Note: Please choose your class carefully. Once purchased there are strictly no refunds nor credits for another class. If for some reason you or someone you have bought a ticket for, can no longer attend the class, it is up to you to find a friend/family member to take your/their place.

Drawing Inspiration from uniquely beautiful Australian landscapes and designed to be used every day, Eucalypt Homewares creates decorative and functional ceramic homewares, tableware and gifts.

 

 

“Eucalypts are majestic in their coats of dusty green and brown with offerings of exquisite and intricate flowers. The flowers, often unnoticed high in the tree canopy, remind us to seek quiet beauty in life. Unique to our place of dry earth and forever sky, the trees with their almost secret gems, evoke our spirit and connect us here.”

 

 

Handmade in Australia

 

 

All my ceramics are hand made in the Eucalypt Studio Kensington, WA

 

 

They are slip cast or hand-built from porcelain clays and fired to a high temperature.

 

 

The clay body is hand tinted and a clear glaze applied to the internal surface. The Floralware Range is decorated with a printmaking technique, the decals designed by Melanie. Each piece is then sanded post firing to give a lovely satin feel.

 

 

Variations and irregularities may occur in size, shape, colour & glaze, making each piece unique and one-of-a-kind.

 

 

Caring for your ceramics

 

 

Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is strong and highly vitrified even though the external surface is not glazed. However, it is a hand-made and unique product so some care is needed.

 

 

We recommend washing in the dishwasher, being careful of the rims and avoiding over stacking. If washing by hand, please use extreme care as knocking items together in the sink can causes your ceramic to chip or crack.

 

 

To keep your pieces beautiful, minimize contact with staining foods or liquids on unglazed surfaces. Also avoid putting your Eucalypt Homewares pieces in the oven as the oils from the oven can stain, also there is a high risk of thermal shock (cracking caused by moving ceramic to and from extreme temperatures eg hot oven to cold bench.)

 

 

We recommend the tumblers are stacked in groups of no more than two, to prevent jamming.
