Unfortunately The Melbourne Collective has cancelled this event. Needless to say, I am pretty upset that I won't get to see you anymore.
I will still be at the Northcote Pottery Market this Thursday 6 Dec and will be getting my online store updated with as many goodies asap so you can still get your mitts on some AM Ceramics for Christmas!
Thanks for understanding.
Join me for an end of year Twilight Market, featuring a beautiful collection of stalls from Northcote Pottery Supplies staff, studio residents and tutors . Perfectly timed before Christmas, and after work hours. An opportunity to support local makers this Christmas.
Featuring: Adele Macer, Alison Frith, Alterfact, Bridget Foley, Cathy Hayward, Claire Johnson, Dawn Tang, Dawn Vachon, Emily Hassel, Glenn England , Jade Thorsen, La petite fabrique de Brunswick, Lucinda Florence, Sara Knight, Tommy Hluchanic and more to be announced.
Slip Casting workshop.
In the slip casting session you will learn how to make your own plaster mould. You will learn how to make a clay master to cast from, learn about the intricacies of mixing plaster, setting a one piece mould and how to de-mould the master. As the mould needs time to dry out - sometimes 4 weeks!! - you will have a chance to cast from a ready made one piece mould and learn some joining and decorating techniques to finish.
All materials, tools and firing is included, just bring yourself in some clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty (an apron and an old towel might be a good idea). Cast work will be ready for collection from the studio approximately 4-6 weeks after the session. It will be glazed for you after the first firing. However, the mould will be ready to take with you at the end of the day!
In the studio, I accommodate for small groups of three people. The group lessons are small so that everyone gets one-on-one attention to learn at their own pace. The small group setting is a relaxed and enjoyable way to learn the basics of ceramics. Its also a great activity to do with a few of your friends!
Class starts 25th August from 1pm. Head here for tickets
NEW VENUE!! Now at The Apartment in South Yarra.
Hand-building is the best way to learn about clay and how it works as a medium. This single session is hands-on and is aimed at beginners who have always wanted to learn about the ceramic process.

It’s an immersive space filled with furnishings and homewares presented within a home-like setting.
