Give yourself permission to create, slow down and play in the mud with Tali’s ceramics workshops. You are invited to journey through your own creative process from idea to finished product. Tali creates a space that invites you to slow down and sink into the meditative and playful experience of clay and ceramics. Experience the pleasure of making, the satisfaction of self expression and the opportunity to learn new skills. Her fully equipped studio, The Depot in Mullumbimby, Byron Shire, provides you with all you need to bring your designs to life. Tali’s teaching style skilfully creates a safe and nurturing space to fully surrender to the creative process, whilst guiding you with more than 10 years experience in fine art and ceramics.
“I teach because I believe that the more people we have expressing themselves creatively in our community the healthier and more connected that community becomes. I teach because it challenges me personally and I like that. And I teach because it’s fun!”
Tali offers regular ongoing ceramics workshops throughout the year as well as seasonal short workshops. She also provides 1 on 1 tuition and custom workshops. 1 on 1 sessions allow you to deepen your skills and creative process with fully focussed and tailored teaching. Custom workshops are the perfect addition to retreats, family holidays and weekend getaways. A beautiful way to honour special life events such as baby showers and hens nights by celebrating in a space to connect and play with family and friends.
