December | Fika Cookies | 2 Hr Instructor Guided Workshop
The holidays are the time to indulge in the most tasty snacks and treats! This year, create your own custom jar to fill with your favourite cookie or snack and share with your friends and loved ones. In our Fika Cookies workshop, you will be guided through how to build your jar and lid step by step, with no experience necessary.
1. Build & Sculpt
Create your cookie jar using our high fire clay. We will dry and fire the clay in the kiln. 2 hours of instruction, stay up to 30 min after to finesse.
Return to the studio to add the beautiful glazes. You can get super creative or go with a simple design (we will have some inspirational ideas available to you). Book at least one week after your build date. We recommend 1-1.5 hours, depending on the amount of detail :)
3. Pick Up
We will fire it again in the kiln. Approx. 10 days after glazing, it’s ready to be collected

The most important thing to remember when working with clay is to relax and enjoy the process of making hand made art! Clay is like magical mud for creating fantastic pottery and cool ceramics. First, you shape it into whatever you want. Then it has to air dry and go into a super-hot oven called a kiln, where it gets fired at really high temperatures (around 1,200°C!). After it’s been fired once it’s ready for the colourful and clear glazes! Finally. it gets fired again to cure the glazes to the clay.
