Hygge Studio Earthenware / Pottery workshop
Let your hands move and mould as you learn the craft of pottery from experienced maker Connie Augoustinos, to create a unique stem vase, hand-built with stoneware clay. Typically in a course format over a number of weeks, this is a unique opportunity to create something authentically yours in one sitting, learning simple ceramic hand-building techniques from a professional ceramic artist.
Enjoy a glass of sparkling while creating your own bud vessel under the direction of Connie. You’ll also take home some floral tips and tricks from us at Hygge Studio, on how to fill other vessels you may have with dried blooms.
This is the perfect opportunity for beginners to learn in a relaxed setting, for friends to play with clay, or for pottery masters to perfect their art in a new inviting space with other like minded individuals.
We will provide you with an apron but remember that being arty is messy stuff.
You will leave your handmade creation with us at the end of the evening, to be fired and glazed and kept safe until it’s ready for collection the following fortnight. Here you will select from our dried bloom range, carrying your precious vessel home in your Hygge canvas bag.

Artist and Maker
With an intuitive making process, her work considers the history of clay as well as the natural world. Her practise predominantly uses the coil hand building and pinching techniques, playing with scale and surface. The slow process of hand making is reflected in the product – each piece is unique, imbued with patience and meaning.
