Workshops - getting up close and grubby 

Peter & Julie hold workshops at both their studio/gallery and home, as well as off site, for example in design stores or at corporate offices. 

The workshops are a mix of presentation of processes, examples of their work from the past and current, as well as 'have a go' sessions: getting up close and grubby with clay. The workshops are heaps of fun as well as inspiring.  They are often used as team building exercises. There is no hierarchy when covered in clay, all are equal!

For more information or inquiries about what is involved plus cost, please contact us.

DUE TO POPULARITY IT'S BACK: The White Crackle Glaze Orb

A 2 hour event where you see Peter make an orb, watching the process up close and hearing about the process from years of experience of one of the countries most well-known ceramic artists. 

Then switch gear to get involved - select an orb and make it uniquely yours with the distinctive inking process. With this process, each orb differs significantly, and you are in control of how you create it. Peter will guide you through the inking process, and you take the orb away with you at the end of the day to become a feature in your home.

The workshop costs $80 per person, which includes the 2 hour tutor, wine & cheese, an orb worth $49 (the one you made uniquely yours) and heaps of fun and inspiration.

Book below. Spaces are limited to 15 participants, so be fast.
