Barry’s Pottery Workshop “It’s not the thing but how…”

Driving Creek Railway and Potteries in partnership with Ceramics NZ are running a series of one-day pottery workshops celebrating the hand-built techniques and approach of the incredible Barry Brickell.

This small, intimate and relaxed workshop will focus on unravelling the hand-building sculptural techniques of Barry Brickell (with a close up look at some of his most iconic works held by the Driving Creek Railway, Arts and Conservation Trust Collection).

Your tutor will be Laurie Steer. Laurie is an artist and potter. He is also an occasional educator and human. With 27 years practical experience and a Master’s degree in Art & Design, Laurie has collaborated with and studied under some of New Zealand’s leading artists and designers. From ceramics to design Laurie leads a richly diverse life, comfortably merging art and craft sensibilities with contemporary education for endlessly interesting outcomes.
