Come and have a fun and creative afternoon at Cauldron Distillery on Tamborine Mountain and create your own pair of ceramic gin cups.
During this two-hour workshop, you will make your own set of gin cups. (or a vase if you prefer!) Designed for complete beginners, this is a fun way to experience clay for the first time. Larissa, an experienced artist and teacher of 20 years will guide you through several hand building and decorating techniques, so that you can create some special and unique pieces.
Enjoy a complimentary drink of one of Cauldron’s award winning gins on arrival. (non alcoholic drinks also available). Located in the Hartley Road Winery Precinct, Cauldron Estate is an 18-acre property with beautiful established vineyards and lush green meadows perfect for picnics, lawn games or kicking back for an afternoon of R&R. Proudly located in the Scenic Rim, recently named by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 destinations to visit in 2022. We are 1 hour from Brisbane City and 35mins from the Gold Coast, Tamborine Mountain offers stunning views, rainforests to explore, great cafes and artisan shops.
All clay, tools, glazing, and firing are included.
After the workshop, Larissa will fire and glaze your cups -you’ll be able to choose between a lovely multi-faceted white or semi-matt black glaze.
They will then be carefully wrapped and posted to you within 3-4 weeks. Please select shipping option.
Locals and regulars will be able to come and collect their cups from Cauldron. Please select Local under the shipping section.
You may like to bring along an apron, please wear comfortable clothes & shoes.
Please do not attend this event if you are unwell. In the case of sickness or the need to isolate please get in touch via email as soon as possible. It’s been a difficult time for everyone, and we are still navigating within a constantly changing environment. If you are unable to attend due to health issues you will be able to receive a full refund up to 48 hours before the event. After that time, you can gift your place to a friend or receive a 50% refund. In order for this workshop to run, I will require a minimum of 8 participants, if insufficient numbers enrol, I reserve the right to cancel and refund all payments.
All of my ceramic pieces sold are useable and made to store liquids. The body of each piece is made using one of Australia’s finest porcelains, fired to 1280°C and fully vitrified. Due to the nature of combining various stoneware, raw minerals and porcelain clays, your work may have some very superficial (thin and only surface deep) spilts on the outside. This is rare, but does not change the function of the work. If your cup/vessel leaks, of course please contact me, however, all cups are checked and tested before sale.
If your ceramic piece has not been glazed, rather has a polished finish, I have applied Liquid Quartz ceramic sealer, which is a food safe, permeating sealer designed for use on unglazed ceramic ware. Click here for more information about this product. Due to the thin walls of your porcelain piece, please be mindful that hot liquids will be hot to touch if in a porcelain cup. Careful hand washing of your ceramic ware is advised.
I will ship orders within 4 days of receiving the payment. They will be well packaged with recycled packing materials and sent by Australia Post. A tracking number will be provided via email. Australia Post Standard is generally 3-10 days with tracking – no insurance. Please contact me if you would like to add insurance or express postage. COVID has impacted greatly on international shipping. I am currently able to provide standard and express postage to USA, Canada, New Zealand & Singapore. Any import duties, fees, &/or taxes payable in your country are the responsibility of the buyer. U.K. buyers please contact Thrown Contemporary in London to purchase.
If you end up paying too much for shipping I will refund you the access via PayPal and send you a message to let you know.
