Printing On Clay Workshop Sunday 7th August 2pm - 6pm
Printing on Clay
Sunday 7th August 2pm - 6pm
57 Dyson St, Kensington WA
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 we will experiment with making our own ceramic transfers from scratch by creating layers of print design using mini silkscreens, underglaze paints and paper.
Then we will use our decorated paper to create designs onto clay slabs. By slumping the slabs into plaster moulds we will produce a set of little bowls and plates.
During this class we will be using my screens to create the transfers. I have 10 different designs to choose from.
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
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.
Cost includes all clay materials and firing.
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 booking for, can no longer attend the class, it is up to you to find a friend/family member to take your/their place.
**OPTION OF BRINGING OWN SILKSCREEN**
If you would like to print your own drawings onto clay during this workshop you will need to arrange to have a screen made up through Jackson’s in Fremantle. This costs $40 for an A4 design. Ring Jackson’s to find out the design requirements on 9335 5062. Then bring the screen to class with you.
Please do not bring screens larger than A4 as I don’t have the room for larger screens.
PLEASE NOTE, this is not compulsory as I have screens for people to use, this is only if you want to use your own drawings.

Customer care & Shipping
Australian made tableware drawing inspiration from uniquely beautiful Australian landscapes and designed to be used every day, Eucalypt Homewares creates decorative and functional handmade ceramics.
“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.”
Australian Made Dinnerware
All our ceramics are hand made in the Eucalypt Studio, Australia
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 blue and white porcelain 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 dinnerware 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.
We offer a flat rate shipping charge of $15.00 within Australia on our online homewares store.
