Floral Vases and Vessels with Connie Augoustinos | 4 HOURS
Workshops at Seppeltsfield Estate
Create your own set of small plant vessels in this hands-on workshop led by ceramicist Connie Augoustinos at JamFactory's Barossa site, located within a heritage building amongst the iconic palm trees at Seppeltsfield Estate.
Participants will be guided through coiling and pinching construction methods to create a series of small floral vessels in a variety of forms and proportions; starting with a shallow bud vase with a small opening - or multiple openings - intended for minimalistic floral arrangements with an emphasis on small details. Participants will then be able to apply these hand-building techniques to other pieces in the style of their choice.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners; students can expect to complete 2-3 small pieces depending on their chosen size and complexity. All tools and materials are supplied.
