Lisa West presents

Rustic Ware: plates, dishes, mugs, spoons, knives


Come and discover your inner potter! We will pinch, roll, sip and nibble our way through 2 1/2 hours of fun in my studio on my farm in the Derwent Valley Tasmania.


Beginners and novices this is for you! My sessions are more social and than serious though you will make some pieces you will be proud of and impress your family and friends. My workshops are inclusive and the environment supportive.

This lovely mud like clay has lots of gorgeous grit which is only fully seen once it has undergone the final glaze firing. I have chosen it for this workshop because it is a very easy clay for beginners to use. It is full bodied and robust.

Non-alcoholic drinks and snacks will be served. You are welcome to bring wine, beer, champagne etc, if you let me know before hand I will supply the glasses.

I will fire and glaze your pieces in the 2 weeks after your session using a lovely gloss white glaze which contrasts beautifully with the unglazed areas. I will email you when they are ready so you can pick up. If you are unable to pick up I can let you know the freight cost and send it to you. Any left pieces after 2 months will either be destroyed or donated.

No further costs except optional postage/freight of finished pieces


Would you like a workshop just for your group? Just email or message me to organise.
