Get your hands dirty with Colour Box Studio’s brand new Ceramic Planter Pot and Platter workshop led by Melbourne artist Carolyn Warren.
You’ll learn various clay hand-building, texturing, staining and other decorative techniques from an experiened facilitator and then get free reign to create a platter, planter pot to house your green leafy friends, or both!

Participants will have access to various different mould shapes to form your clay vessels and materials to imprint patterns and textures into their surfaces to create minimal and unique features for your garden or table.

You’ll learn:
– Handbuilding techniques such as coil-pot building and slab-building
– Best methods to make sure your clay vessel will endure firing
– How to form decorative elements

You’ll get:
– 3 kilograms of clay in two colours (enough for two pots or one platter and one pot)
– Use of various moulds, tools, equipment, textures and stains
– Your finished pieces will be professionally fired and ready for pick up in 3 weeks
