About the evening

Enjoy cheese and champagne while you dive into the eccentric world of Brisbane-based ceramist, Clairy Laurence. Clairy will give you insight into the creative process and inspirations behind her signature quixotic, spirited ceramic characters. Then watch her in action as she demonstrates her incredible hand-building techniques.

We will also have a wonderful selection of Clairy’s work for sale on the night!
