Stoneware Planters with Ingrid Tufts x Cool Cactus

  • The Windsor Workshop Level 1, 115 Chapel Street Windsor, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

You may not realise it yet, but you are very familiar with Ingrid Tufts’ ceramics.  Yes, you have sipped coffee from her cups at establishments such as Cumulus Inc, Dukes Coffee Roasters and Auction Rooms (you can also add The Windsor Workshop to that list – custom made thank you very much); you have seen her pieces in Donna Hay, Safari Living and Koskela; you have seen her collaborate with artists such as Katherine Bowman and Michaela Bruton AND she has been an Official Merchandise partner for Opera Australia.  Now that is what I would call an impressive ‘projects’ list!  And now you can meet this wonder woman of porcelain powers at The Windsor Workshop making stoneware pots for plants (including hanging pots and saucers) - create an instant indoor garden or perhaps an outdoor oasis is just what your home needs…

PLUS this time we are excitedly pairing with Cool Cactus who will bring your STONEWARE PLANTERS to life - like, literally.  Each participant will receive 3 small succulents to plant directly into their planters, as well as potting tips and care instructions.  Instant ‘shelfie’ right there folks!

Over a fun filled, coffee fuelled, champagne sipping lunch, you will learn…

  • How to hand-build pots for plants (including hanging and saucers)
  • How to create these wee pots using three different robust stoneware clays plus different decorating techniques
  • Potting tips and care instructions for succulents

What You Get

  • Students will make their planters, which will be fired and ready for collection one to two weeks after the workshop.
  • Students will be required to pick up their pieces between business hours on designated days the weeks following the workshop (you will be notified via email).
  • 3 small Succulents per person to take home and plant into their new planters.
  • You will also enjoy a gourmet lunch – and did I mention wine? Yep – wine too...
