We will meet at my studio in Brunswick East - one of the best areas in Melbourne for handmade, craft, cafe and artists workshops. My studio is part of a group of studios with other potters and has a little cafe next door. We will have a look at different work to get some inspiration and talk about the technique we will work with : slip casting. After a quick and easy explanation, you will get to start making your very own set of tablewares : cups, bowl and plates. We will work with pigments to create patterns and experiment with colours. You will get to make at least 1 bowl, 1 tumbler and 1 plate. I will organise after that the firing and the glazing so your pieces are all fully functional. If you are not staying longer than 1 week in Melbourne, we will organise the delivery to your home- which is a flat rate of $40 for international and $20 for Australia.
Hi! My name is Lucile, I am french based in Melbourne since 2013. I have been making handmade ceramic objects for the last 5 years. I have created my own design, new patterns and managed all the steps regarding to the production of the pieces. I am easy going and love sharing my knowledge. I am patient and will guide you at each steps of the way to make sure you will have the best experience at making your own ceramic work. You can find more info about my work, or having a look at the previous workshops on my Instagram page @lapetitefabriquedebrunswick or on my website : www.lapetitefabriquedebrunswick.com
All the clay, pigments, glaze, moulds and tools you will need to create your perfect set
The workshop will be at my studio the all time : if it's nice weather we will get to work outside (but in the shade) or if it's cold and rainy, we have a big communal space we can use.
You don't need to have much experience with clay or with craft before hand- it's a nice way to get your hands dirty and make an unique souvenir from Melbourne, the city where craft and handmade is so important.
