"Honestly, the closest thing I can compare this two week workshop to is a spa day. Two Sundays off mom duty, enjoying the most magical food, sipping on champagne and creating masterpieces. Love that we didn’t need to know what we were doing to be there. Amazing!"

"Honestly, the closest thing I can compare this two week workshop to is a spa day. Two Sundays off mom duty, enjoying the most magical food, sipping on champagne and creating masterpieces. Love that we didn’t need to know what we were doing to be there. Amazing!" - Lisa

"I had the absolute pleasure of taking part in one of Calico Ceramics' workshops. To say it was the one of my all time favourite experiences is an understatement. Dani is incredible, talented and just the most divine host and person. The venue and delicious food was perfect! I loved spending time with one of my best friends creating beautiful pieces as well as meeting such a lovely group of people. There is something so therapeutic about working with clay and Dani’s gentle and knowledgeable guidance meant that not only did we leave with a new appreciation for the art, but with our own beautiful creations, which will be treasured forever. Thank you Dani & Tim for everything. If I could, I would take part in every single workshop. X" - Lauren

"Danielle’s two-day workshop is a gentle, supportive way to begin learning ceramics. She carefully presents basics and more challenging projects in a way that allows free expression with just enough structure to ensure that nobody leaves without homemade treasures. The workshop is beautifully presented and catered, it’s a treat from start to finish. I loved it so much, I’ve booked a second round!" - Gina 

"I absolutely loved Calico's pottery workshop, and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good company, a bit of creativity, and yummy food! The workshop is great for people of all skill levels - Dani offers great guidance for the novices, and ample inspiration for those who are a little more skilled." - Meg

Great mindful experience

I needed a creative outlet, and an experience to keep me grounded and present. I needed to invest in an experience vs a thing, and an experience just for me. Dani's workshop was perfect. It was intimate, educational and creatively freeing. Thank you Dani for providing such a warm space to express ourselves and learn more about your craft.
