At this free workshop, artist Tracy Keith will introduce a range of clay handling and construction techniques. Tracy is known for creating artworks that showcase the characteristics of the clay itself and the energy of their maker. You’ll come away with the confidence to experiment and play – the beginning of the journey to finding your own style.

The focus of this short workshop isn’t making completed pieces to take home, but instead trying out new techniques, playing with form, and learning in a supportive environment.

This workshop is designed for adults. No booking required, but places are limited.

This experience is part of the Mihi ki ngā Ringa Waihanga| Celebrating Makers series.
