Description

Come have a go at the pottery wheel in our 2.5 hour wheel throwing  workshop. You will be taught the foundation skills needed to make vessels on the wheel.  This workshop is fun, informative and experiential.  You'll get the chance to experience the feel of clay and what it's like to work on the wheel.   

You may select 2 of your ceramic pieces to be glazed and fired by staff.  Additional pieces may be chosen at an extra cost of $5 per piece.

This introductory workshop is a fantastic stand alone experience as well as a way to gauge your interest in taking a longer course.

Fly solo or book in as a group!

Course tutors:

Jess Dybing is in her 3rd year studying ceramics at RMIT and has a love for all things clay. Jess’s practice is focused on glaze chemistry and altering surface decoration through raw ingredients and firing schedules. She has been wheel throwing for around 4 years and loves sharing this passion with others. To see examples of her work click here.

Georgina Yen Qin Lee is an emerging ceramicist based in Naarm / Melbourne, Australia. Her practice explores the intersections between form and function, creating pieces that can standalone as objects to be appreciated aesthetically, but also fulfil a functional purpose.

In her works, Georgina leans into the unpredictable moments of the ceramic making process by applying a considered yet incidental approach to shaping the clay on a potter’s wheel and intuitive methods of mark-making and glazing to create truly one-off pieces.

Georgina is an Australian-born Chinese Malaysian with ancestry from China's Fujian province. She seeks to honour the long lineage of ceramic culture and tradition of her heritage, passing on their stories whilst exploring the new.
