Introduction to Ceramic Hand Building
March 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$142.50
In this beginners hand-building workshop you will have the chance to get your hands dirty and make something lovely for yourself or for a friend! You will learn different hand-building techniques like pinching and slabbing to make pieces such as cups, planters, or spoons. You will have the opportunity to work with different stoneware clays and the option of using coloured underglaze to make simple patterns.
Your finished pieces will be fired and glazed for you, ready for collection at Think Thornbury.
Who is Aliça?
Aliça runs RARA Studio (@hellorarastudio), a Melbourne-based ceramics business.
She makes unique, hand-built objects for the home and to wear.
Aliça has a background in fine art and has a love for natural materials and objects, especially the look and feel of handmade work. She originally studied ceramics with a Japanese ceramicist but is primarily self-taught. Each piece she makes is one of a kind, with the marks of the maker celebrated, forming the texture of the work.
She sells her ceramics online, with stockists across Australia and overseas. You can also find her at markets like Big Design Market and the Melbourne Ceramics Market. Her work has been featured in Frankie, Yen and Country Style Magazine.
Aliça works locally from her studio in Thornbury, with her three studio helpers, Teti (dog), Claudia and Sybil (cats).
