Description

We’re really excited to offer Open Studio sessions to those who have completed a ceramics course or have previous experience working with clay. (There will be no teachers, as this is a self directed session, if you need to learn about clay, please check out our workshops.)

We envisage this time will be a chance to play, experiment and practice the skills you learnt in your course.


Time: Tuesdays, 6 - 9 pm

Cost: $40
