Connecting Community through Clay

As a Visual Arts educator of more than 30 years, I know how important creativity is during challenging times for maintaining wellbeing.

My busy studio class schedule is adapting to current circumstances by moving to online class delivery.

With so many people living locally to my studio in Cheltenham, you may like to explore your hidden artist and learn to create some ceramic pieces.  Any age or level of experience is able and welcome. Whether you are a family, a couple, primary or secondary student…. whatever age; an Artful Life has no boundaries to creating.


Each week I will email a link to a video for the week’s activity, a handout for each activity summarising the same information as delivered in the video. Through the course of a term, I will teach you specific skills, types of clay, glazing techniques, processes and clay care.

Cost covers all materials, loan of tools, video of me demonstrating each lesson, firings and my time to clear gloss and fire work again.

1 class – per person/kit = $35.00

Term 2, 9 lessons – per person = $300.00  (Term 2 = Apr 14 – 27 June)

10% sibling / partner discount = $270.00

Collect your kit from my front porch Mondays between 12pm – 7pm and drop off your finished work to be fired – no contact required.

Your pieces will be fired up to 2 firings per piece (depending on glaze types used).

You will name the bottom of your work and return it in a named container *when still damp, NOT when dry as it is breakable at this stage to transport.

You will sanitise all tools before returning them.

You can walk or drive to collect and drop off – simple.
