Lygon Street Pottery is the new pottery in Melbourne’s North bringing together Brixton Street Pottery and Brunswick Clay Collective/ Sundborn Ceramics.
Opening this May, Gordon Hickmott and Brigid Sundborn have joined together to provide classes, workshops, studios space and a whole lot more.
Classes will be running from the 1st of May while we build up the pottery.
Classes cater to all levels of experience and includes hand building, wheel throwing, sculpting and glazing. We believe in learning by doing and encourage students to explore, experiment and refine their skills.
Gordon prides himself on creating a relaxed teaching environment that creates a sense of community and an energised space for exploring the materials. He brings with him 25 years of experience as both a ceramic artist and educator.
Brigid became hooked on clay 12 years ago. She was an assistant teacher at Brixton Street Pottery, learning the ropes from Gordon before opening her small studio Brunswick Clay Collective four years ago. Brigid’s functional work (Sundborn Ceramics) is informed by a quiet aesthetic with Scandinavian and Japanese influences. Brigid loves seeing her students find joy in clay and creates a warm and welcoming space for people to learn at their own pace.
