Pottery Classes on Request

Come and join me to play with clay for a day. Together in a small group we will explore simple hand-building and surface decoration techniques using colored slips. This is an easy and fun way to open your creativity and achieve very beautiful results. I have an extensive collection of stamps and stencils to explore the endless possibilities this simple process offers. You will make 2-3 small to medium size bowls or plates to take home and treasure. Successful results guaranteed. :-)

Studio is now fully air conditioned for a comfortable creative experience !

Facilitator Claudia Gyr :

Claudia completed a 3 ½ yr potters apprenticeship in Switzerland in 1979 learning all facets of making a living from pottery.

She has been teaching pottery in Switzerland at an adult education school for 4 years before immigrating to Australia in 1988.

In 1992 she opened her own pottery studio with adjoining art gallery in the Channon where she made a living as a potter and gallery owner for 8 yrs.

After the sale of the gallery Claudia studied and then worked as an Art Therapist and only recently through one of her clients found her way back to clay.

Now still working as a part time art therapist and without the pressures of having to make a living from clay she enjoys sharing her knowledge with others in a relaxed and supportive environment.

“Looking forward sharing some creative and playful time with you.” Claudia :-)
