We are very excited to announce that our much loved Plant-Based cafe will be open during the following weekends this November!
Laurie Steer will be running an amazing Pottery Workshop on Saturday December 1st here at Solscape. Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced clay hound this is a chance for you to get your hands dirty in a beautiful and supportive setting under the guidance of a master craftsman.
This relaxed and playful workshop will focus on the making of hand built tea bowls. Laurie is a
huge fan of Solscape and their peaceful approach to living. As a regular guest, Laurie has been
hoping to teach at Solscape for many years and is wildly excited about this unique opportunity to
share his passion in a place where he feels creatively connected.
Aspiring potters will explore multiple techniques for creating their own unique tea bowls and
broaden their understanding of the value of the humble vessel and of clay as a dynamic natural
material. Broken into two easy going parts the morning session runs from 10:30am till 12:30 noon
after which there will be a one hour lunch break. Hungry potters are encouraged to refuel at
Solscape’s very own Conscious Cafe and enjoy the incredible plant based cuisine on offer. The
workshop resumes at 1:30pm and concludes at 3:30pm with everyone completing their own
original handmade tea bowls.
This inspiring and educational day out will cost you $150 and includes all necessary materials
including snacks, tea and coffee. Take the first step to igniting your passion for pottery or reignite
an old flame at this intimate, inspirational ceramic experience.
