Ceramic Workshop

From the remote Scottish Highlands to Perth WA we are excited to be holding a workshop hosted by the talented and established potter Fergus Stewart.
Fergus is well known to Perth. In 1984 he set up his own studio at Glendalough, WA. The following year Fergus, together with Greg Crowe designed and built a wood-fired salt kiln in Hovea, which was the starting point of his work with salt glazing.
Fergus will be teaching us throwing and trimming techniques along with decorating ideas and an insight into wood firing, salt glazing and kiln building.
