#SHAPEANDMOLD was inspired by our own love for all things ceramic. with a deep appreciation for the hands behind our favourite pieces we felt drawn to create a morning that would celebrate this ancient art and invite you to experience the creation process that is often overlooked.
taking your own love for ceramics beyond simple admiration, this morning is all about coming to grips with the clay itself as we learn how to trust our hands and practice our patience.
our maker for the day Amor of Dayfeels will join us as our guide through this intricate practice. sharing her story and imparting her knowledge onto us and allowing us to see ceramics through her own keen eyes.
under Amor's guidance you will learn the in's and out's of trusting your hands with this most ancient of materials as she guides us through the step by step of a variety of methods to shaping and molding.

going home with |
this 'hands on' experience will leave you with the confidence and courage to turn a lump of clay into so much more. with this newfound knowledge we encourage you to keep shaping away with the help of your notes from the day and our step by step guide, allowing your hands to guide you as you play with this ancient art at home.
as the creation of ceramics is one of many intricate stages the piece that you will be making on the day will be left in our very loving hands and sent to a local kiln for firing. once this final step is complete and your creation is ready for its 'close up', we will deliver it to you. so think of it as a belated gift from your hands, into ours and back into yours.
this does not mean you will be going home empty handed! along with you own clay creation as well as a step by step guide of shaping + molding techniques, each guest will take home a lovely Dayfeels piece of their very own made with care by Amor herself.
