Over one day Lea will teach you how to hand build using coil and pinch pot construction, and how to decorate your own leggy pots. You can make pots for plants, your pens, treasures or just about anything.
The class is suitable for beginners and people with more experience with clay. It will be a fun, no stress, gentle day of making with a bunch of lovely people. It’s a chance to bask in the lovely words everyone will say about what you are making, have a laugh and be creative. A day you can step away from of all the demands and just have some time to be in the moment.
Here is what some previous course participants have had to say about the workshop:
"The Leggy Workshop with Lea was a perfect balance of fun, creativity, friendly people and delicious food. I was surprised at how easy it was to make a pot that looks great and that I love. Lea provided the perfect guidance to help it have every chance of success! "
What a lovely experience! Some of us were beginners and some more experienced. Lea encouraged us all and gave pointers and assistance as needed to guide each of us to making our unique pots. Success was assured with such a calm, quietly spoken and knowledgeable mentor at our sides"
"Lea’s leggy pot workshop was the relaxing day retreat I needed. Amongst the beautiful farmstead setting in Braidwood,our small group learnt hand sculpting techniques to create, relax and enjoy working with clay. With homemade treats, cups of tea, good company and a generous lunch by the fire pit… I also managed to create a number of lovely clay pieces which now decorate my home"
"I did one of the leggy pot workshops with Mud Dept. and it was amazing. Beautiful atmosphere, great instruction, small group of interesting people, lovely clay, great service with the firing and delivery of my finished pots. Plus yummy snacks and the most tasty lunch. I had a brilliant time, and highly recommend"
