Intro to Ceramics - Hand Building with Clay



Description

Join Alana from Tea4Two Art in this fun and relaxed introductory class to hand building techniques using white clay. Alana will teach you basic ceramic techniques such as pinching and slab building to guide you to produce several creative and functional pieces for your home.

The pieces made in this class will need to dry and then be fired in a kiln before being ready to take home. Once dried enough to move, Alana will take pieces made in this class to her home studio to fire in her kiln, before returning to the Work-Shop Adelaide’s event space. After booking, we will organise a suitable time (approximately one week after the class) for participants to come and collect their finished pieces!

As the owner & maker of Tea4Two Art, Alana uses high quality porcelain to create bespoke gift and home ware pieces, drawing her inspiration from texture and nature. Alana loves and appreciates the white, translucent quality of porcelain as well as the durability due to the high firing temperatures. Tea4Two Art is Alana’s creative outlet from being an Art teacher, wife, mum and business partner.

This course was fun and allowed us to apply two techniques to create items of our choice from clay. The instructor was friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone interested in having a go at making a clay product.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. It was fun and relaxing. Great atmosphere for creating. Alana was so inspiring and super friendly. Its a great night for anyone who wants to get their hands dirty and really create something.

Had such a ball! I think I would have a surf on Pintrest next time to get a bit of an idea first of what I could make... I got a bit stuck for inspiration! The instructor got me quickly motivated and I made lots!
