Potteroo Palace, named after the Gilbert's Potoroo, Australia's rarest marsupial, is a working studio run by talented artists Lily Mercer and Caroline McCrudden.
Lily is a hand builder focusing mostly on quirky animals, in particular those found in Western Australia. She also makes ceramic dogs full of charm and character.
Caroline is an incredibly knowledgeable ceramicist who offers classes on wheel throwing and glazing pots. She offers raku and wood firing workshops in the winter and a multitude of sessions on mixing glazes, making porcelain beads and decorating with coloured slips to name but a few.
This summer, Potteroo Palace is hosting an interactive series of pottery workshops for boys and girls aged 6 years and up.
Held in the convenient location of Moerlina School in Mt Claremont, these fun and engaging workshops will see children create unique wares in a safe and supportive atmosphere.
The workshops are facilitated by Lily and Caroline and are taught in a small group of 10 persons, ensuring all students receive personalised guidance.
All materials are provided (including glazes and firing) and students will come away with personalised wares to keep or give to loved ones. Past workshops have seen students create Christmas decorations, cups & mugs, bowls & coil cups and Australian animals.
Potteroo Palace also offers adult classes in addition to holiday and children's classes. Details on upcoming workshops can be found on the Moerlina website.
