Intro to Ceramics - Pinch Pottery

Intro to Ceramics - Pinch Pottery

with Catherine Field

An introduction to hand crafted ceramics.

This workshop will give you an introduction to working with stoneware clay - in particular the techniques for making pinch pots. Bondi Wash have gifted all students with a beautiful soap, so first we will make a little soap dish for you to take home. Then we'll move on to make a larger pinch pot which could be used as a bowl, cup, vase or planter. 

Catherine will take away the pieces for bisque firing, glazing and the final glaze firing to 1260 degrees. Pieces will be available for collection approximately 4 weeks after the class.

All materials will be provided, so all you have to bring is your creative spirit, and a willingness to get your hands a little messy!

Oh! And because we like to make a real go of things, we'll serve some charcuterie and cheese from Salt Meats Cheese, and some Four Pillars gin and tonics too.

What you get

  1. A beautiful soap dish and larger bowl (made by you), available for collection from Cultivate Folk once fired in the kiln
  2. Some gin and tonics, and some cheese and charcuterie to enjoy throughout the class.

About Catherine Field

Catherine Field is the maker behind Splendid Wren Ceramics range of handmade homewares from Bondi Beach, Australia which focuses on functional simplicity. The pieces are made using traditional hand building techniques from a range of stoneware clays. They are then high fired to stoneware temperatures to ensure their durability. No two pieces are the same. They feature natural, earthy glazes and often there will be a finger print or makers mark to remind users that it was made by hand. Her work is stocked at Commune Bondi, Elph Store, Orchard Street, Mia Chicco and Paperbark Camp.
