Make a mug with mum- special Mothers’ Day workshop!

Snakebird Designs

Regular price $40.28


Mothers’ Day is on Sunday, May 14.

Celebrate together by bringing your mum or mother-figure in your life along to make your very own mugs together by hand.

In a calming environment and small class with a maximum of 12 students, you will be walked through the basics of handbuilding a mug and saucer with ceramics in a no-pressure, leisurely paced workshop. 

Snack on some pastries and fruits and enjoy a tea or coffee while you first learn about the process and principles of ceramics.

You will then be taken through various handbuilding techniques (slabs, pinching, joining and coils), and then encouraged to mix and match them to bring your creative vision to life. 

When you're done for the day, your pieces will be left to dry and then bisque fired, glazed and fired again. They will be ready to collect within four-six weeks (you will receive an email/text to arrange pickup.)

Cancellations- If you are no longer able to attend, please get in touch up to one week before the class date and your spot can be transferred to a later date. Unfortunately cancellations within a week of the date will not be refunded- perhaps ask around and see if a friend or family member can take your place.

Upstairs at Coburg Studios- 69 Charles St, Coburg North (right by the velodrome)

Who's it for?

Anybody who wants to have a special experience with their ma!

Pricing information:

The price per lesson is based off the high cost of ceramic materials and equipment, transport and firing costs, rent for the space, time & money spent on advertising/admin and to try and enable me (the teacher) to earn a living wage through ceramics.

If the pricing is a barrier but you would like to attend, please get in touch via The pay-it-forward spot may be available (see below) or we can arrange payment alternatives (like helping out with cleaning or other studio jobs).

Before the day:

- If you have any accessibility requirements or injuries to be aware of, please email me ahead of time via and I'll try my best to accommodate. 

- Let me know of any dietary requirements- we'll be having snacks!

- Please consider cutting your nails short- they tend to get in the way. 

On the day:

Clothing: comfort is king! Don't wear your finest threads- clay does wash out but it's best not to take chances.

Parking: There is free and unrestricted parking at Coles down the road or on Lens street next to the studio.
