Minna Graham Pottery Workshop

Minna Graham is the Warrandyte Pottery Expo’s featured artist for 2024. We are very pleased that she will be running a pottery workshop just after the Expo, across the road, at the Warrandyte Neighbourhood House, 168 Yarra St Warrandyte, 3113.

Tuesday 27 February 2024, 1 to 6pm, $150

Join Minna for a fun, playful and informative workshop. Minna will give an artist talk outlining how she came to ceramics, including images of her practice, inspiration and aspirations.

Minna will share her experiences of the tea world, and discuss the design and functional aspects of her teapots.  Explore the ins and outs of making and constructing well pouring teapots. Minna will demonstrate wheel-throwing the components of a teapot (body, lid, spout, handle) and discuss placement and joining and compiling the components to create a unique, functional teapot.

Learn surface decoration techniques to create dynamic textures. Experiment with layering various surface treatments techniques such as surface expansion, using throwing slurry as mortar to build up decorative surfaces,  tearing, cutting, carving and stretching. Layer and combine techniques to create dynamic surfaces. Use various household materials to add texture to your clay.

Participants will be able to make and use hand-formed pieces from stoneware clay to experiment with these techniques after the demonstrations. Take home a range of techniques to make unique forms, expanding your skills and abilities as well as broaden ideas about what you can do with clay.  

Bring an apron, towel and any favourite clay tools.  
BYO lunch. Tea, coffee etc available.
