An impressive display of potted crafts will be on display at the Albany Creek Library in June 2019. A workshop on how to create these handcrafted works of art will also be underway at a studio in Everton Hills.

The pottery exhibit called “Hand Built: Slabs, Coils and Blocks,” will feature the creations of artist Marisa Young of Hills Pottery. It will run until Saturday, the 29th of June 2019 and open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Visitors can check the wide range of stunning clay objects, wall decorations and tableware Ms Young made since she started her craft in the ’90s. Adept in other mediums like watercolour, mixed media and printmaking, Ms Young has also tried her hand at working with slabs and coils in her technique.

In connection to the exhibit, Ms Young will also be offering pottery workshops at her garden studio located at 104 Buckland Road in Everton Hills. Held during Wednesday and Saturday at 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 p.m., the classes will teach students to make something out of clay, as well as glaze and use the kiln fire.

Lisa Halls will assist Ms Young in the workshops. While the pottery exhibit requires no booking, the classes have limited slots so reserving a spot is required.

Rates for the 3-hour classes are at $65 per person.

“The goal for me is to have a great space for people to discover the wonders of hand building with clay and to keep potting forever and ever,” Ms Young said of her classes.
