Don't worry if you fail - clean the wheel plate and start again - it's all about repetition. {Half time morning tea break on my tropical deck} - you will choose 1 form you want to keep . Now its decorating time & improving on your form by adding more clay maybe for the handle or saucer. Time to add slip- to carve out lines with different tools & under glaze in 6 shade options will add color. Turn your wheel form into wall planters, bird vases or head face pots my studio is full of visual stimulation - you will then write you name on your creation - and fill out a file with the details of what you have made for easy of collection...Still hungry please enjoy more coffee and cake - or read on the tropical deck with a book about art & ceramics. Collection time is 2 weeks away - 100% dry then twice kiln fired with gloss glaze added.

I am a person who is up for a challenge - I look forward to learning something new. With just 5 years of Ceramics / Pottery training via Tafe North in Cairns - I have now taught over 300 people from ages 5-75 in far off remote places as Doomadgee QLD & Melbourne .My home studio has sold works globally to shops & online also the Cairns Regional Gallery. MY life motto is always look on the bright side of life, love hand made, hand touched & a little bit unique. I am not a fan of mass ceramic forms with no soul. I am quick witted, coffee and chocolate addict I love to show you CLAY.

I had a really great time and, with Felicity’s help, made a mug. I shall remember this holiday every time I use it.

This class was fun for me. Felicity taught me some useful techniques and told me some interesting stories about being an artist. Her studio is well equipped and her enthusiasm and love for her craft is contagious. She is good company to be with. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to use a pottery wheel, or revisit your childhood in the art room, this is a great opportunity. I felt very supported by her.
