Wine & Design: Throw day!
(+2 more dates)(Private Dates Available)
Want to have a little fun to help you wind down at the end of the week? Or have you always wanted to try your hand at the pottery wheel and make a creation to use at home? This casual one-off class is just for you.
Our ever-popular teacher, EJ, will definitely make this a fun and relaxing night for you! She will guide you through how to use the pottery wheel, give you a solid understanding of the throwing process and provide expert tuition on making a vessel or two for you to glaze... all in one fun-filled night!
The class fee includes a glass of wine on arrival, tuition, materials, glazes and firing of two pieces.
COLLECTING YOUR WORK:
Once your piece/s have been glaze fired (usually within 2-3 weeks of your class), you can come pick them up.
EJ is a Sydney based artist born in 'the good Korea'. She studied her Honours majoring sculpture at the Sydney College of the Arts. She's recently shown her sculptures at the 541 Art space, The Other Art fair, Kerry Lowe Gallery, Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart and a solo show with Electrofringe. Her practice is experimental and cross disciplinary, combining different mediums such as performance, video and ceramics. She wasn’t always interested with wheel throwing, it was only when she had a humbling experience learning complexity of wheel throwing. She vividly dreamt of wheel throwing, waking up in confusion as her hands were clean and dry.
