Flip Flop Slip Workshop

Join us for a fun and relaxed session of Flip Flop Slip making. You’ll get some basic clay knowledge, and we’ll teach you techniques such as flop-molding and slip decoration. You’ll get to make your own plates, bowls and dishes, apply your own textures and colours to your work, and make them your very own.

We’ll glaze and fire the work in the following weeks, so you can take your own plates and bowls home with you.

NB: Flip Flop Slip is a range of ceramic tableware designed and made by The Fortynine Studio. To see the range click here.

The Planthunter + The Fortynine Studio

DESIGN/PLANT workshop series

We’ve joined forces with The Planthunter to present a series of intimate plant + design focused workshops called, you guessed it, DESIGN/PLANT.

The first one of the series is called POT + PLANT and is guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing. Over the course of a two and a half hour evening workshop you’ll pick a plant provided by us, learn all about it, and then hand build a ceramic pot custom made for your new plant friend. We’ll wind up the night with conversations about plants and creativity and The Fortynine Studio will fire your pot for you. It’ll be wonderful.

WHAT YOU’LL GET

  • A ceramic pot, made by you, and fired by The Fortynine Studio (ready for pick-up 2-3 weeks after workshop)
  • A plant for your pot
  • An evening of great conversation, creativity, and connection with like-minded folk

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • A bunch of different ceramic hand building techniques such as slab forming, coiling and pinching
  • The basics of object design
  • The basics of plant care
  • How to experiment and play with forms, plants, texture, and ceramics

This workshop is limited to 12 people only.
