What people have said about our workshops
Treat yourself to an evening at Winterwares
Inspired by the need to slow down and step away from the busyness of our day to day lives, I want to give you a space to be creative and make something that you’ll love.
My aim is to give you the experience of meditation through movement – when your hands are busy your mind naturally becomes quiet and calm.
After polling my audience for ideas on what to make, there were lots of requests for plant pots and platter.
Choose your workshop below and make something that you can use every day as a reminder to enjoy your daily rituals.
Book your evening workshop
It was so enjoyable and relaxing and made me feel I had the ability to make something creative. There was no stress or pressure to follow strict rules, just gentle help, and guidance – I loved it!
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I make in the evening workshop?
There are two classes to choose from. On Friday, July 12th you can make a plant pot or on Friday, July 26 you can make a platter. 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. 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 separate 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.
