For the month of June, Albany Creek Library hosts a stunning new exhibition from Hills Pottery called "Hand Built: Slabs, Coils and Blocks".
Albany Creek library showcases Hills Pottery Exhibition throughout June
Hills Pottery is the creative inspiration of artist Marisa Young, who has been working with clay since the 1990s, though she also enjoys in other mediums such as low toxic printmaking, mixed media and watercolours. More recently, she has turned her skilled hands to slabs, blocks and coils to create a range of hand-built clay objects, wall hangings and tableware.
Alongside fellow artist, Lisa Hall, Hills Pottery also runs workshops. Situated within Marisa's home garden studio in Everton Hills, they provide hands-on tuition, notes, clay, materials and, tools. She also offers options to glaze and kiln-fire all students' works of art created within the class.
Classes have limited numbers so bookings essential, where students will learn how to use clay and then apply a decorative glaze ready for firing. "The goal for me is to have a great space for people to discover the wonders of hand building with clay and to keep potting forever and ever." said Marisa.
Classes run Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9.30 to 12.30pm and are suitable for both beginners and those with some experience. A 3-hour workshop is $65 or to really unleash your creativity, you can undertake a block of 3-workshops for $180.
But be warned - working with clay is lots of fun but very messy! You'll need to bring an old towel, apron, wear old clothes, closed in shoes, and keep long hair tied back.
Children's holiday programs are run too, with the winter holidays bringing a "Make a Bowl" hands-on workshop for $35.
