Bud Vases

Bud Vases

3 Hour Workshop


A Bud Vase is small vase that can hold just one flower or a small bouquet. It’s quite easy for a beginner to make a vase around 20cm high, which makes this a fantastic workshop for all levels of potters.

In this workshop you’ll be creating your vases using the tactile building technique of pinch-potting, where you pinch down into a ball of clay with your thumbs and slowly work it into a vessel.
Once your vase shape is complete, you are free to decorate how you see fit. Carve out patterns, add colour or attach clay shapes.

This is a 3 hour workshop and costs $89 per person. Once finished, we’ll dry, glaze and fire your pieces, ready to pick up within 6-9 weeks.

Because of it’s simplicity, it is a wonderful pottery class to do with the family. Children under 12 are welcome but must be accompanied by a paying parent.
