About the event

Be My Keeper Studio continues to indulge students with a great mix of clays, techniques and glazes.  A well-established studio that has its roots in providing quality education with teachers that have years of experience in this space. 

 Enjoy 4 weeks of learning the basics in a fully equipped studio, classes include learning techniques such as hand building including pinch pots, coil vessels, sculpture, slab, and surface decoration. Participants can explore a range of methods or focus on their particular interests, classes are blended to capitalise on both functional and non-functional projects. 

These classes are designed as tasters so you can decide if you want to invest further in your ceramics journey with one of our intermediate classes.

If you are shopping around, these classes are 3 hours so we can take the time with you and explore each technique, we believe in the integrity of the clay and the maker.  

Get connected with like-minded creatives, and fall in love with clay in a fun and informal setting!

Please note firing is not included and is charged at $12 per kg for bisque and glaze firing.

Facilitator Dani Salvo

Wk 1 -  Pinch Pots

Wk 2 - Coil Pots

Wk 3 - Slab platters

Wk 4 - Glazing

PLEASE NOTE there is a 2-week gap between weeks 3 &  4 to ensure all work dries slowly, is fired and is ready to be glazed.

If you are a return student your projects will be an extension of what you learn in the first 4 weeks.  You will be offered a choice of projects to work on guided by both the facilitator and your research using drawing and journal work.   

PLEASE BOOK WISELY!  I will be unable to refund any cancellations, you can transfer your ticket to a friend.  To avoid disappointment please do not ask for a refund, please understand that a facilitator is being paid with other outgoings and numbers (your booked spot) is required to keep my little business afloat.  

Thanks for understanding

Dani Salvo
