What people have said about Winterwares workshops
Step away from the busyness
of your daily life
The Winterwares Mindful Making workshop series is inspired by the need to slow down and step away from the busyness of our day to day lives. My aim is to give you the experience of meditation through movement. When your hands are busy your mind naturally becomes quiet and calm. We’ll spend a day slowing down and being in the moment with your hands in the clay to create your own piece. You’ll make a beautiful ceramic piece that you’ll get years of use from. Something that you can use everyday as reminder to enjoy your daily rituals.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I make in the workshop?
The workshops change to reflect the seasons. For example during the winter we made mugs, because everyone needs a beautiful handmade mug for their hot chai in the cold months. For the summer series we will be making a serving dish. Check the details on the workshops booking page, they change seasonally. I teach the technique to make a piece and everyone creates the same thing, but they all look completely unique.
I love your style of ceramics, can you teach me how to make plates and bowls exactly like yours?
I’m so delighted that you love the Winterwares range, thank you! This is my personal style that I’ve created and it’s important to me that you find your own style. The focus on the class is not about creating a certain piece or having a particular pre-determined outcome. I want you to draw your attention to the process of being in the moment rather than being worried about the end result. Winterwares workshops aren’t about learning specific pottery techniques, they’re about having the experience of relaxing in a beautiful, calming space.
Your workshops sell out so fast I can never get a ticket, what can I do?
Join the Winterwares mailing list and you’ll be the first to know when I have new workshop dates. I love to run private workshops, get together a group of friends (6 – 8 people) and I’ll hold a workshop just for you. It runs exactly the same as the advertised workshops. Email me and we can talk about the details.
Where is the workshop held?
The Winterwares studio is at 10 Stack Street, Fremantle. In the co-op working warehouse called Stackwood. Winterwares workshops are independently run seperate from the Stackwood workshops.
What is your refund policy?
Tickets are non-refundable, though you can transfer to a friend if you can’t make it.
Do you have workshops for children?
My workshops aren’t suitable for children, I’m not planning any children’s workshops at the moment. There are some fantastic kid’s clay workshops at the Fremantle Art Centre in the school holidays that you could check out.
