Introduction to Pottery Adult Classes

Introduction to Pottery Adult Classes

3 weeks starting Thursday 30th May

Join Alison Lowe in a small friendly class of likeminded curious creators. This class is a total beginner’s class and will introduce you to the intricacies of creating with mid to high fired clay.

You will learn the basic skills and the rudiments of hand-building that will ensure your clay creations are made well then add a colourful flair to your pieces using underglazes.  Once the pieces have gone through the complexities of firing in a kiln you can collect your creations from the ŌCC office at the isite. 

The pieces pictured above were from a previous workshop, all participants had such a great experience and said how knowledgeable Alison is.

Alison has been engaged in ceramics/pottery for the past 7 years building up her expertise and attending learning opportunities from NZ and overseas clay experts and artists, including the tri-annual ceramics conference in Tasmania.

She has a studio space on her property in Te Awamutu where she creates beautiful pottery pieces in her large functional kiln, mini kiln and a raku kiln. Alison sells her work online and at markets, you may have seen Alison and some of her creations at the Ōtorohanga Christmas market last year.

Participants should dress for mess and bring a water bottle.

Workshop is $215 per person (booking fees may apply) - Running Thursday 30th May, 6th, 13th June.

May workshop will take place in the space behind the Ōtorohanga iSite (21 Maniapoto Street) Entrance to the workshop will be off Wahanui Crescent. June workshops to be placed at a later date.
