Kurinuki Carving Workshop

Driving Creek Pottery, 380 Driving Creek Road, Coromandel Town

Rescheduled for 9 October 2021

Kurinuki is a Japanese technique for hand forming clay vessels. The clay is removed or 'hollowed out' from a solid block rather than being built up by adding clay. The potter may take a tool or object to slowly remove clay in search of its form allowing it to emerge from the block of clay.


This workshop is suitable for all levels including beginners. Clay will be provided and tools will be available for use. Participants are more than welcome to bring their own carving tools if they wish. There will be lots of tips and techniques shared along the way by workshop tutor Kristen Calder of Bravery Inc.


The workshop duration is 2 hours. This normally allows participants enough time to create two vessels to take home, or to leave with us to be glazed and fired. Cost of glazing and firing is included in the price of the workshop. Possible postage is to be paid separately.


Cost $95
