What is Available to you?

How to Use Open Studio

OPEN STUDIO

Get stuck into your own projects!

You can use all of our materials when you work in the Open Studio on your own projects! We stock a good variety of midfire clay and we have a great selection of Firebird Studios own glazes. We recommend Mayco stoneware glazes if you would like to bring your own brushing glazes. You just need your own set of tools and a hand towel! We don’t teach you how to do your projects – you should have basic hand buidling or potters wheel tecniques under your belt – however, we have teachers, interns and staff on hand to help with some of the tougher questions!

There is a rhythm and flow to clay. It can’t be done all at once! Even the making process! It can take weeks to get everything done!

About Clay And How To Handle It

Clay is a special kind of dirt! It has been formed over millennia of grinding up and weathering of regular dirt. Sand has interesting particles that are jagged and not uniform and not organised. Clay has particles that line up and can be organised. Part of the process...

New Digs

Firebird Studios has moved into the new space at unit 4 / 6 Ramly Drive! Over the last week we painted the walls (they were red and grey) moved the martial arts upstairs, built a glazing room, had wash down areas and clay traps plumbed in, set up a nice lounge area with tea and coffee, and set up the little kitchen. There is open space we will be utilising for larger workshops and events as well.

“Booking a private class for my birthday was the perfect way to celebrate with my girlfriends. It was both relaxing, and most importantly heaps of fun!”

A celebration everyone will treasure forever.
