Workshop Details

At The Amazing Technicolour Glow Tree workshop, first you will be guided through the project step-by-step to create a unique and fun design for your tree. 🎄

Learn basic clay techniques and tools and use our professional studio and equipment while you catch up with a friend or family member. Next, return once your clay is dried and fired to add the glaze—you choose the colours!

Timeline

1. Build & Sculpt
Create your Glow Tree using our high fire clay. We will dry and fire the clay in the kiln. 1.5 hours of instruction, stay up to 30 min after to finesse.

2. Glaze
Return to the studio to add the beautiful glazes. 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

Stoneware Clay 101

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.
