Founder Kit Han believes people can get more satisfaction out of making ceramics as every single piece is different to another. We agree with her view as you never know how your ceramic project is going to turn out until the colours are all blended together in the firing process. Workshops include; mug and plate set, animal plates, and wheel-throwing. We’d happily pay $600 for these two-three hours sessions to design our own unique creations!
