With strong naturalist backgrounds, Waiheke Ceramics finds inspiration from the beauty of native flora and fauna. Designs are grounded in Danish and Māori heritage.

The key skills you will learn include understanding clay quality and ability, manipulating and shaping using hands as the tools, 3D conception. This is the first technique to practise and can lead on to great things. Then you will design and decorate a handmade lunch plate using coloured glazes.
