Pottery Workshop with Laurie Steer

One-day Practical Workshop

Date: Jun 29 – Jun 29Space: Workshop

Laurie Steer will be running a Pottery Workshop on Saturday, June 29th at Creative Arts Napier. 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, coffee cups and teapots for the adventurous! Aspiring potters will explore multiple techniques for creating their own unique pots and broaden their understanding of clay as a dynamic natural material.

Broken into two easy going parts the morning session runs from 11am till 1pm after which there will be a one hour lunch break. Hungry potters are encouraged to find something delicious to eat amongst Napier’s many iconic, culinary offerings. The workshop resumes at 2pm and concludes at 4pm with everyone completing their own original handmade tea-set, coffee cup (or mysterious blob thing).

This inspiring and educational day out costs $150 and includes all materials, firing, glazing, return postage & even snacks!

Take the first step to igniting your passion for pottery or reignite an old flame at this intimate, inspirational ceramic experience.
