Tiny houses with Sally from Deep Earth Ceramics
Join local Walyalup (Fremantle) ceramicist Sally Smith from Deep Earth Ceramics and learn all about the fun and meditative craft of slab building to create your own tiny ceramic house. With dark stoneware clay you'll learn to assemble your piece from a starting slab. Sally will also guide you through any tweaks so you can customise the design of your piece.
At a finished size of approximately 9x7cm, these adorable pieces would make a darling addition to your home, or a wonderful housewarming gift.
Place a tealight candle underneath and watch the flicker through the little windows, or pop an incense cone inside and enjoy the rising scent through the tiny chimney. Alternatively, the open chimney can act as a small bud vase – there's so many uses for your unique piece!
All tools, materials and light morning tea will be provided. There are no previous skills required, simply bring your authentic self. Participants are welcome to bring along their own aprons or borrow one of ours.
- Time in our warehouse with an incredible local artist
- A Tiny House crafted by your own hands, and decorated in your style
- Coffee and cake from our cafe to enjoy while you are crafting
- The skills to continue at home
Your piece will be glazed and fired at Sally's studio. Cost included in your ticket. A huge amount of care is exercised when finishing off your precious hand-made items. Please note that clay is unpredictable and on rare occasions, items break in the kiln. This is all a natural part of the fun of perfecting your craft.
Works will be available within ~ 4 weeks of the class date for pick up from the Stackwood store. You will be contacted when they are ready to pick up.
For any classes after the 4th November 2023, we cannot guarantee works to be finished and returned by Christmas. They will be available in the new year (2024). See here for opening hours.
Sally Smith discovered clay when she was just 5 years old. Since that day she has travelled many creative paths and all have brought her back to her first love; clay as a vehicle for expression. From her small garden studio in Fremantle, Sally creates unique pieces with emotional authenticity, preferring essential beauty over conventional perfection. Most importantly her work is made with love and designed for use each and every day.
