About me:

I am a pottery artist and teacher. I enjoy all aspects of pottery creation, from recycling clay, to throwing, turning, decorating, glazing and firing.  I especially look forward to opening the kiln after a firing to see the finished products.  

I specialise in functional ware, including mugs, tumblers, bowls, platters, lidded vessels, mosquito coil holders, tagines, and casserole dishes.  I also enjoy producing sculptural pieces.  I sell my pottery locally.

 

In my class the emphasis is on having FUN while learning a new creative skill.

Classes: 

Wednesday 6.00pm – 9.00pm

About me:

I am a local ceramic artist who is obsessed with clay, rock climbing and my dogs. I am originally from a small town in south west Queensland and came to Townsville to study science. I started pottery classes here after taking a leave of absence from uni a couple of years later when I didn’t feel like science was the right path for me. Since that day I haven’t been able to get pottery off my mind. I go to sleep thinking about it, dream about it, and wake up thinking about it. The world of ceramics is so vast that I am constantly learning, and I am excited to share this journey with my students.

I specialise in making pottery on the wheel and surface decoration. I also enjoy hand building and sculpture. 

Classes: 

Tuesday 6.00pm – 9.00pm

Thursday 9.00am – 12.00pm

About me:

 I have accumulated many skills as a hobbyist potter from hand building, throwing, firing and glazing during the last 35 years. 

I love exploring all the techniques clay can offer and particularly enjoy the fact that there is always more to learn.

My ideas for the class are to teach beginners throwing and hand building and as the students become more experienced I would like to mentor their creative ideas. I am particularly keen to strengthen the students' skills in the glazing field, loading kilns and firing. I will also be demonstrating a different surface decoration technique every term.

Classes:

About me:

I am a passionate potter and enthusiast of all things clay. My journey started a few years ago right here at the NQ Potter’s Association!! It was an instant love affair. I still get butterflies over creating hand-thrown ceramics that marry beauty and function.

My hobby has developed into nothing short of an obsession. I now specialise in one-off pieces and small batch offerings. Perfect for gifting loved ones or adorning your own home.

I currently offer beginners wheel throwing but I am happy to work with individuals who want to learn hand building and sculpture. ​​
