What materials do I need?

All the tools and materials you need are explained in depth in each course, but don't worry about going to the expense of buying specialized pottery materials if you don't have them - virtually every tool you need can be subbed for found objects around the house!

Help! I don't have access to a kiln! Can I still take part?

Lucky for you, if you don't have access to a pottery kiln, you can just as easily use air dry clay! There are steps included in each course that accommodate for both pottery clay and air dry clay. 

I want to use pottery clay - how do I fire my work?

If you are in Cape Town, you may arrange to have us fire your work for you at our kilns. Simply send us an email and we'll make the necessary arrangements. Otherwise, if you're elsewhere in the country, try get in touch with your local pottery studios - a lot of them hire out space in their kilns to the public.

How long do I have access to the course?

You have lifetime access to every course you purchase! So you can come back to it again and again! You can even get your kids involved, but please don't share the online course with others - that's not ayoba.

I'm sold! How do I sign up?

Select your course on this page, go through the checkout process and then we'll email you your guide.

Pottery workshop reviews

"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." - Lee-Ann 

"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
