Introduction to Working with Clay




This private workshop is tailored for guests staying at Villa Rustica who have always wanted to get their hands in clay!


We begin on Saturday morning when Greg takes us for a tour through his ceramic studio introducing us to the equipment needed to produce ceramics. Our workshop setting is in the Pavilion that overlooks the Moroccan courtyard, and here Greg will guide us in creating our own masterpiece with raku clay!


The small group size will ensure plenty of individual attention. When our pieces are finished, they are dried overnight to be ready for glazing on Sunday morning. After glazing, the pieces are fired in the gas raku kiln.



This weekend is all about having fun while gaining confidence in handling clay and experimenting with glazes.


Workshop Cost: $150.00 including all materials and firing costs.


Please note accommodation is extra depending on whether you choose to stay in the Potters Cottage or the Jaipur Suite.

I was fortunate to attend Greg’s ceramic workshop at Villa Rustica. Initially, I had planned to create a useful piece but this changed when I discovered there was so much more to learn about working with clay. Greg was wonderful at explaining the process, and everyone went home a finished piece of ceramic.


This creative getaway was so much fun that I would like to do it again!”
