casual clay classes – term 2

And now we are suddenly in March! Okay, welcome autumn! Although, it’s 30 degrees here on Mt Tamborine as I write this….

My first term of ceramic classes are at the halfway mark and I’m blessed with a bunch of keen students. So now I am pleased to offer the first of term 2 classes at my home studio on Mt Tamborine.

casual clay

is a 5 week course for those wanting to have a play with clay, hand building their own pottery pieces. These are small intimate classes, no more than 5 students per class, you can do your own thing or be guided by Nicci with hand building projects throughout the course. The course starts Thursday 22 April from 9:30am to 11:30am, the course ends 20 May.

All the details and how to book a place is listed on my workshops and classes page HERE

Open studio in November

VERY excited to be in the 2020 Australian Ceramics Open Studios Sat/Sun 21/22 November. My lovely studio will be (hopefully) clean and tidy and pots priced and displayed ready for sale. There will be the traditional sales table of seconds and old stock as well as fresh new work hot from the kiln. I’ll be offering discounts for my wonderful students and repeat customers so come along, talk clay, and bring some spending money #nearlyxmas

I will be giving throwing demonstrations all weekend so bring your children and friends to see how pottery is made on the wheel. See you next month!

winter update

the boots, scarves and jumpers are out and it’s a lovely time to visit Tamborine Mountain: be invigorated by the fresh mountain air and spoil yourself to a hot toddy at one of our excellent cafes and restaurants.

I’m thrilled to say the Iso Tea-Time of the Soul exhibition at Under The Greenwood Tree has been extended so there is one more week to see this show of steampunk inspired ceramics, you can ask Janene for a copy of the catalogue
