Cleaner Wanted  |  Next week in the studio   |  Term 3 classes and workshops  |  UKU Clay Hawke's Bay deadline 

Some lovely ceramics handbuilding techniques coming through the studio recently - spaces are still available in our upcoming Tursday morning handbuilding class with Yasmin

A grid shows four thumbnails with images of four handbuilt ceramics items. Top left is a ceramic dish made using nerikomi clay techniques, top right is of a cup with attached blades of green grass and red mushrooms with white polkadots, bottom left is an image of a brown bowl with white flowers, the surface has a deliberate cracked appearance, bottom right is an image of a ceramic shark with a blue bottom and white top.

Cleaner wanted

We are still searching an independent contractor to help us clean the studio for 4 hours each week. We need a hard working and reliable person who can clean outside of studio and teaching hours so usually on Sundays late afternoon. It could also be split across two sessions in the mornings before the studio opens. Please help us spread the word if you know of anyone who might be interested. Interested parties should contact

Studio next week

The studio is closed next week while the bathroom renovation continues. Larissa will be on leave next week spreading her creative wings at Driving Creek Pottery. If you have a query between Wednesday and Friday and need a reply before 1 August, please email Sarah who will try to answer your question.

Term 3 classes and workshops with spaces remaining

There are still a few spaces in these upcoming pottery classes and workshops in our Hamilton studio:


Some feedback from a parent of some children who attended Linda's Term 2 class:
"Linda went above and beyond and delivered a fantastic presentation for the kids, parents and caregivers. I can only imagine how much thought, planning and effort Linda put into the class and the exhibition.
The variety and diversity of the kids' artwork reflected just how much they enjoyed the class.
All the children were presented with an award that acknowledged their individual artistic skill and talent. The exhibition reflected how the kids were afforded freedom to use their imaginations while learning the craft of working with clay and hand building.
So, a huge thank you to Linda for her efforts, she's done a stellar job! I've no doubt, all the kids will now have a passion for pottery and working with clay."
