  • $115.00

Learn how to make your own unique mug in this Sydney workshop! You will discover so many possibilities of building that perfect mug without using a pottery wheel and enjoy special double ticket discount.

Time is 25th June at 1:30 pm. Workshop is running for 2.5 hours and we will take the breaks casually, as per everyone's need.

Venue is gorgeous Bustle Studios in Surry Hills. Check out the space here 

We are gonna be in a beautiful sunny Living room with an access to a terrace !

Directions for attendees:
The address is 1/457 Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills. The entrance is around the corner on Rutland Street, look for the red door and the sign 'Bustle Studios'. We are only 3 mins walk from Central Station

Your teacher will demonstrate making a unique texture pattern or marble effect and then help everyone with their mugs individually. You can also choose to make an unusual mug shape. As shown in the photos, all mugs made by the author, options are numerous.

We are creating these colourful patterns in fresh clay. Glazing is done separately.

Your teacher will also instruct you on how and where to fire your piece and all the rest you need to do to complete your perfectly functional mug and be able to drink your morning tea or coffee from your art piece. It does feel great drinking from something hand-built!

Please note: Everything made of Ceramic must be fired in ceramic kilns. Colour that you see inside of the mug is a glaze. Glazing comes after 1st firing and must be fired again. Pottery changes a lot from the fresh phase till the end. The prettiest expression is after 2nd firing. 

You are welcome to attend Irina's glazing and firing class after this one (runs regularly online), but during this class, you will learn the basic rules on how to proceed with completing your mug.

This class is scheduled with a limited number of people (12) so that everyone gets a chance to ask questions and your teacher can provide personalised tips and tricks on how to create what you want.

Attendees will get:

- Fresh clay cube, ready to use (600 - 650g)
- A tool to cut, shape and carve
- Paintbrush (small)
- Pigment (ceramic stain and/OR underglaze) to paint fresh clay and create a pattern of your choice; two colours per box
- Sponge for smoothing the edges
- Rolling pins
- Moulds for shapes of mugs 
- Different textures and paints
- More materials (make two if you can, no extra charge!)

BYO drinks if you wish, you are welcome to use the glasses on the spot.
