Pottery Workshop: Make Your Own Unique Mug

Select number of people

Discover a unique way of making a mug with your personal imprint

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

Your teacher Irina will demonstrate making a unique texture pattern or marble effect and a hand-built cylinder mug. Your mug can finally be in your favourite colours inside and out prior to glazing!

You will be supplied with sufficient materials to build your mug and to apply the amount of colourants to your wet piece, prior to firing.

We will also instruct you on how and where to fire your piece and all the rest you need to do to complete your mug and be able to drink your morning tea or coffee from your art piece. It does feel great drinking from something you have made yourself !

Please note: Everything made of ceramic must be fired in ceramic kilns. The colour that you see inside of the mug is a glaze. Glazing comes after the first firing and must be fired again. Firing is cheap and you will get the information on where to do it during the class.

There is an option to leave your piece to be fired two times and glazed with your host, it just requires you to have a great deal of patience as it is a long process. An additional fee of 15 $ per person applies. 

No prior knowledge needed, beginner -friendly but a bit complex class. Following instructions closely is advised, although you are welcome to do your own thing and just have fun.

Unfortunately not suitable for children under 15 and all minors have to be accompanied by adults (I make exceptions for groups , please get in touch).
