Queer Social Darebin: Intro to Pottery with Maddy

This event has passed Buy Tickets

Event description

Come and explore the world of pottery and clay modelling!

Maddy will guide you through an introduction to pottery, supporting you to make your own piece of pottery art from air-dry clay.

You might like to make an engraved plate, a little pinch pot or both! 

At the end of the workshop you will walk away with new skills and a hand made object to gift to a friend or adorn your home!

This event will be half social chats with a bunch of like- minded queer people and half fun, educational and interactive workshop.

All workshops are taught by queers, for queers.

This event will happen as part of Pride of Thonbury Market happening 10-2pm if you want to check some amazing queer makers and make it a day!

What will we cover?

In this fun, hands-on workshop you will learn how to:

  • Condition our clay
  • Work with air-dry clay to make objects
  • Design and shape clay
  • Stamp, emboss, engrave into clay
  • Attaching pieces of clay correctly for strength

What to bring?

All materials are covered in the ticket price. 

Have a think about what you might like to create, and also about how to transport this home. It can be really useful to bring along an empty tupperware container and shopping bag to transport your clay work home safely.
