To celebrate Valentines Day in the best way possible, we have added a new Mug making workshop for you to enjoy with your gal pals 👯♀️
We have teamed up with Tia Haynes from The Milk Press to bring you a creative Galentines Day evening building your own mug with your favourite Gal Pals. There will be bubbles on arrival and a delicious antipasto platter to enjoy while you potter.
Starting at 6pm, In this 2.5h hour workshop, you will create one mug.
With Tia’s guidance, you will construct a slab mug from a creamy speckled clay. You will learn how to pinch out the form into an organically shaped mug, refine your mug, and attach a handle. You will then be able to apply surface decoration in a minimal fashion using letter stamps to add a name or phrase, and small amounts of coloured underglaze.
Please see photos for examples of the type of mug achievable in this workshop.
After the workshop, your items will be taken to The Milk Press pottery studio where they will be slow-dried, bisque fired (900 degrees), clear glazed, and high fired (1200 degrees). Your items will then be packaged up and ready for collected from Punnet within 4 weeks of the workshop.
All materials and tools needed to create your mug is included in the workshop cost. Although clay washes out of fabric and won’t stain clothes, we suggest bringing along an apron (if you have one) and a small towel.
This workshop is designed for beginners, while still being suitable for those with clay experience.
