Description

Learn how to hand build your own ceramic wares, get your hands dirty and walk away with the satisfaction that you’ve created something you can use everyday!

Spend an afternoon learning the basics of hand building with clay; pinching, slab, coiling and joining to create a whole range of pieces from cups and bowls to ring fingers and spoons… the possibilities are endless!

Your pieces will be high fired and a choice of Daisy’s coloured glazes will be available to adorn your creations for their final firing.

This class is suitable for beginners or those wishing to play further with clay without a long-term commitment to a course.

ABOUT DAISY COOPER

Having studied fine art in Scotland, Daisy moved to London to pursue a career in the arts. After working for arts charities and organizations she went traveling and fell in love with ceramics. On returning she took a course in ceramics and from there has built up her practice and business.

Recently moving to Melbourne, her practice is very evolving and growing from new experiences and environments around her. The landscapes and natural environments around her influence her work everyday, drawing textural and colour inspiration for each collection.

Her work is stocked in independent shops across Australia and the UK, as well as being featured in publications and used by food stylists across the world.

The facilitator was excellent- she paced the class brilliantly, was very good-humoured, explained everything clearly and was very helpful. I think we all felt we were in a pair of ‘safe hands’. Thanks very much - a very enjoyable day!

This course was relaxed and well set out. We first learnt a few hand building techniques including basics for working with clay. Next we were free to choose what pieces we’d like to make and get stuck into it. It was a very relaxing and therapeutic practice for me and I enjoyed it. I would definitely look to do my own ceramic hand building at home. The group size was appropriate. Tools, space and freedom to play was great!
