Saturday 30th June - 9am to  3pm

You will be guided through the process of joining the already prepared neck and head together.  The neck is thrown in our studio in Brisbane and the head is press out of a mould by our employees in the studio. You will then be able  to give your head planter some personality by adding hair and any other sculptural embellishments! 
The head planter is approximately 30cm high.
In the afternoon you will be decorating the head planter with underglaze colours.  You will be shown several decorating techniques that Monte Lupo uses to decorate the sculptures.

 After you have decorated your head planter, your piece will be fired by our talented team at Monte Lupo Studio in Brisbane. Sculptures will then we returned to  Gatakers Art space  for collection (approximately two weeks later).  

Your piece will be handled and fired by our staff with the utmost care. However, if breakages or kiln related mishaps occur, they will be repaired by our skilled staff. If it cannot be repaired, you will be offered an opportunity to make a new piece during studio time at no additional cost.
