Upcoming 2023 workshops
Colour Happy- The 2.5 hour online workshop will be on Sunday 30 April at 9am Brisbane, Australia time.

-The workshop includes:
– an introduction talk, a tour of Larissa’s studio (a converted underground bunker) and a peak into her lush mountain setting
-a demonstration of how to mix colour into clay (specifically porcelain)
-how to create freestyle nerikomi pattern blocks
& how to incorporate these pattern slices in both hand built, slab and wheel thrown works

-You will also receive a professionally produced 10 page PDF resource which covers the methods, materials and tools discussed, as well as how to successfully dry and fire your works.
-Become a member of the Colour Happy private instagram group so that you can be supported and encouraged by other workshop alumni.

Suitable for beginners and experienced clay folk, I will focus on how colour and pattern can be used to communicate moods and your own unique style. We will explore how to embrace colour in ceramics without the use of glazes, as well as how to make wonderful contrasting/ harmonious combinations or monotone blend.

In the fold presents a playful approach to exploiting commercial and wild clay bodies. With emphasis on creativity and experimentation, we will test a range of locally sourced and commercially mined minerals, rocks, pigments and clays and discover how these can add wonderful new textures and effects to your ceramic ware. Along with building a collection of test pieces, we will explore the surface on a hand built vessel by using wild clay slips, oxides, terra sigillata and burnishing. 
The day workshop will include all ceramic materials, supporting digital resources, a catered lunch and drinks. Participants will take unfired ceramic items home with them on the day. Firing and postage of ceramic works will be an additional cost. 
I pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging, recognising connections to Wangerriburra Country, history, culture and spirituality through this location. As an artist, I strive to ensure I walk softly on this earth and that my practice works in a manner that respects and honours the Elders and Ancestors of these lands.

All over Instagram potters are getting their hands dirty in ‘wild clay’, the DIY-trend for gathering your own. But before you pull on gumboots and pick up a shovel – what are the ethics of digging up your own clay? Artists Larissa Warren and Violet Bond speak to producer Rosa Ellen alongside Indigenous archaeologist Dave Johnston and Journal of Australian Ceramics editor Vicki Grima to unpack (and wedge!) the subject of gathering clay.
