Pottery Handbuilding Workshop with Morgyn from Parrot and Pea
September 3 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm UTC+9.5$100
We’ve got a sweet selection of ‘learn to’ slow living workshops on offer for you to choose from at the Slow Fashion September launch weekend market at Market Shed on Holland and this pottery handbuilding workshop where you can spend 2.5 hours learning some of the foundational techniques of hand building, including how to make a spoon and a pinch pot is always popular! This is the perfect space for you to slow down and be mindful whilst playing with clay.
Morgyn, the creator of Parrot and Pea Ceramics, has been creating and selling handmade functional ceramics in Adelaide for a few years now and is excited to share the therapeutic art that is clay and hand-building with the community! Morgyn is passionate about facilitating art therapy and providing safe spaces to be creative.
Students will have some basic clay building techniques demonstrated to them before being able to freely create their own pieces. With support of the teacher you can let creativity take over or simply see where a pinch pot can take you – bring any ideas you have along! The session will be capped in size to ensure each student can receive one on one support if they wish.
By the end of the workshop you will have created a handful of pieces (1-4+ depending on what sizes you create) and will have an opportunity to decorate your pieces with underglaze paints. Your pieces will then be taken away to be fired, and then finished with a clear glaze.
Finished pieces will be available for collection approximately 4-6 weeks later after they’ve been fired. Collection is from Ridgehaven 5097. Please only book this class if you are able to collect your pieces afterwards. A central location can be arranged if unable to collect from 5097.
All materials and firing provided but please bring along an apron or towel.
Bookings are limited, tickets available HERE.
