Laurie Steer will be running a Pottery Workshop on Sunday, November 25th in downtown Wellington. Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced clay hound this is a chance for you to get your hands dirty in a beautiful and supportive setting under the guidance of a master craftsman.
This relaxed and playful workshop will focus on the making of hand built teaware including tea bowls, cups and teapots. Aspiring potters will explore multiple techniques for creating their own unique tea-sets and broaden their understanding of clay as a dynamic natural material.
Broken into two easy going parts the morning session (which includes tea and home baked snacks) runs from 10am till 12 noon after which there will be a one hour lunch break. Hungry potters are encouraged to find something scrumptious to eat amongst Cuba Street’s many iconic, culinary offerings. The workshop resumes at 1pm and concludes at 3pm with everyone completing their own original handmade tea-set.
This inspiring and educational day out will cost you $150 and includes all materials, snacks & tea. Take the first step to igniting your passion for pottery or reignite an old flame at this intimate, inspirational ceramic experience.
