Wild Clay Club

Get your hands dirty learning how to process wild

Over 10 people have attended this class


In this hands on workshop, you'll learn how to find and test wild clay as well as get a chance to process some yourself.

Brisbane is a city built on clay and there is an amazing diversity of wild clay all around us. Reds, yellows, pinks, purples and browns - even natural porcelain - can all be found in south east Queensland. Even if you live in the suburbs, you might have interesting clay right under your feet.

I'll show you how I process my clay and the tools I use, and then let you get stuck in and try it for yourself.

You can also try throwing or hand building with some of my collection of over 40 wild clays, to get a feel for how they differ from commercial clay.

Please note: Processing wild clay takes time, so the clay you start processing on the day will not be ready for you to take home with you, but you will get a Wild Clay Club magnet to take home with you.

I have two favourite parts of pottery: making glazes and wild clay, and I want to share my love of them with you.

I want to empower other potters to get out there and experiment with confidence.
