Join us for some end-of-the-week relaxation by learning to channel your creativity with explorative handbuilding. With explorative handbuilding, we will focus on the textures, forms, and sensations of the clay - letting the form emerge as we explore then moving towards creating our pieces with intention. You will be guided in a somewhat meditative way, and shown how to construct a hand built piece. 

We will be approaching the handbuilding process in an intuitive way; through the process of relaxation, we will discover our unique creative expressions. 

Some examples of pieces you can create:

Incense holder 

Jewellery holder 

Sculptural piece 

Plant pot 

Relax and unwind with some groovin' tunes, a bit of wine, and prepare to get your hands dirty.

Great Friday evening total wind-down activity. Did it with some girlfriends and wine was provided for us to relax and get creative!

I loved the Wine & Design Class. It’s the perfect intro into hand building and a really fun atmosphere. And of course the addition of a glass of wine makes it a great night with the girls, or even a fun activity to do with your partner. Zoe was an amazing teacher who was willing to help and very hands on. She gave us lots of ideas, and was very encouraging. Definitely coming back to do some more classes.

What a lovely activity to enjoy with friends over a glass... or 2 of wine! Would absolutely do it again with a larger group even.
