Clay Workshop - Textural slip cast bowl - October Sessions


Get creative and have some fun where all the Iggy and Lou Lou magic happens – at Irene’s beautiful studio in Aspendale. (Featured in numerous publications like the Design Files and the Thames & Hudson publication of plant loving studios from around the world- Indoor Green)

This intimate workshop (10 people max) will help you flex your creative muscles. No prior ceramic experience is necessary with sessions catering to all. Come with your friends or make some new ones in a relaxing and creative environment. (Get 10% off when you buy two or more tickets.)

You’ll be making your very own bowl similar- but with your unique design- to the beauties in the photo above which were featured in Belle magazine.

With a Master of Fine Arts in ceramics Irene will share some top tips and secrets about the ceramic-making process. We’ll focus on using a slip cast bowl mould to create intricate textures, layering with paint and decals. Materials and tools will be provided. Everything you make at the workshop will be professionally glazed and ready to be picked up from the studio 3-4 weeks following your workshop.

“I had an amazing afternoon at the Iggy and Lou Lou workshops with the wonderful Irene. She is such a fun, down-to-earth teacher and patiently helped me tap into my (latent) creativity. I can’t believe how beautiful my bowl is. Like Irene, the studio is warm, welcoming and inspiring. I can’t think of a better way to spend a couple of hours.”

“I am not artistic at all, but I have always wanted to be! I decided to attend the Iggy & Lou Lou Ceramic Workshop and give it my best.
I really enjoyed the workshop and found Irene to be so helpful, friendly and lots of fun. She was very clear with her instructions.
The result of my day was a gorgeous bowl that I keep displayed with the rest of my Iggy and Lou Lou items!
