Take Home Kiln Clay Kit

OUR DIY KITS

Make and underglaze in the comfort of your own home. Please note: this clay will need to be brought back to our studio for firing or taken to your closest studio with a kiln and firing services.

 

Clay

Our clay comes from all around New South Wales regional country areas – a great way to support those in the country. In this kit, you will receive 1.5 kg of premium white earthenware clay. Let us know if you prefer brown clay, and we will arrange it.

 

Tools

Hands are the best tools; however, we will get you started with a set of pottery tools that will help you add character and charm to your masterpiece. If you have a rolling pin and cookie cutters in the kitchen or pieces of textured fabric like lace lying around, these are great for rolling clay and decorating. Our instructions will show you how.

 

Instructions

We include illustrated instructions that take you through the process of hand-building clay step by step. You will find this fun and easy peasy. You will also find video instructions on our web page.

 

Painting

After making it, you can leave your piece the natural clay colour or choose to paint it with under-glazes. We include two colours of the best ceramic underglazes to paint your piece, as well as brushes. What we love to do and recommend for a great outcome is grabbing an old toothbrush, dipping it in the colour stains and flicking it over your piece for a crazy dot effect. Painting poker dots and anything you want is also possible.

 

Firing & Kilns

For this kit, you can bring your piece back to be fired at our studio at no additional cost. If firing, you can make items that you wish to eat or drink from, as all our glazes and under-glazes are food-safe. We will be firing and clear-glazing your piece before contacting you to pick it up after approximately two weeks.
