LIL’ WORKSHOPS

WITH CLAIRY LAURENCE

Coming from three generations of ceramicists, with over 35 years personal experience working in the ceramics industry as a maker, artist, artisan, commercial potter and ceramics instructor, Clairy Laurence is a master at her discipline. Lil’ Workshops are an opportunity for ceramic artists, makers and enthusiasts to learn how to make her signature figurative clay sculpture.

Students get to make their very own piece of art in the Clairy Laurence style with their personal flair, and receive a workshop pick up date to return for their creation after it has been fired. A studio lunch is included, giving students the opportunity to pick Clairy’s brain for tips and to get friendly with other ceramic enthusiasts from all walks of life.

Set up in her open air studio
at her home in Indooroopilly, the
Lil’ Workshops limited places allow students to learn directly from Clairy herself, in an intimate and encouraging environment.
