January | Perfect Penguins | 2 Hr Instructor Guided Workshop


Workshop Details

Hygge is a Danish concept all about creating coziness, comfort, and happiness in your life. What better way to practice hygge than by making a Perfect Penguin with your own hands? Learn the art of stoneware clay sculpture in this no-experience needed workshop. You’ll be guided through step-by-step how to sculpt a cozy little penguin. Then, return once your clay is dried and fired to add the glaze—you choose the colours!


1. Build & Sculpt: Create your sculpture 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.

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. 

"The joy is in the process of creating, not just in the finished piece."
