Awaken your Ceramic Style - from Idea to Outcome ...

Choose to participate for either two or three days.  Workshop runs from 10 am to 4 pm daily.

If you would like to be alerted for any new dates for this workshop, please email us by clicking here, and we'll send you an email when this workshop is scheduled again. 

This workshop exposes you to a whole variety of ceramic processes, including wheel throwing, hand building, sculpture and more. You can nominate your ideas or areas of interest and Rowley will help you make them.

Each day will start with the class discussing ideas and / or techniques students would like to explore. Rowley will also demonstrate a few making techniques of his own. From this pool of ideas, Rowley will show you how to make the pieces that interest you. You can focus on one area of making or try a whole variety across the weekend. How much you want to learn or try is up to you. This workshop would be a good start point for someone new to ceramics and has the potential to kick start new creative practises for experienced potters.  

At the completion of the workshop you will have created a body of your own work, ready for glazing and firing. Whilst the program has structured content, the workshop will be responsive to the participants’ needs and will evolve in line with their creative instincts.

Places are limited to only five students, with access to your own wheel for individual practise and tutoring, so be quick to secure your spot. 

Cost - $375 for three days or $​295 per person for two days
Materials included. Tea & coffee provided. BYO lunch each day. 

The next dates for this workshop have yet to be scheduled. To keep updated about upcoming workshops at Quixotica, follow us on social media or join our email mailing list by clicking here 

FEEDBACK from students at Rowley's Shaping, Making & Awakening workshops 

Thank you for your fantastic workshop, and your kind hospitality … I thought that the whole exercise was brilliant. In addition to the workshop I really liked getting away from it all, and loved the peace and tranquillity of Quixotica….It was interesting observing the care and consideration that Rowley puts into each piece, and at each stage of the process. The facilities are great - a wonderful working environment. The cakes, great coffee and billy tea were all spot on too.
