Cathy is a warm and generous teacher, sharing what she has learned and offering her extensive expertise in raku methods with participants. Many people arrive at workshops feeling unsure and tentative or simply saying “I’m not creative – I don’t know where to start”. Cathy gently encourages them all to make a start - to get in touch with the clay, shape it, mould it and begin to give it a new life.
In many ways, she offers people a safe place to express themselves and permission to let the child within play and have a bit of fun. Participants leave feeling thrilled, excited and exhilarated at their creations – made with their own hands and with creativity sparked from within themselves. They often go away able to tell a new story about themselves: “Actually, I can be creative”.
Cathy’s style and approach to familiarising people with clay and what it can do, simplifying the process and then letting them feel their way, produces the magical transitions that make these workshops such special events.
Well worth the trip from Brisbane. A very pleasant and informative day playing with mud. Cathy shares her extensive knowledge without question.
Another great workshop with our Inner Goddess - Thanks to your magic fingers Cathy ! Looking forward to the next one 😀😀😀😀
I have done 3 workshops with Cathy, not only do learn skills, you have beautiful pieces for your home. Can't wait to do more workshops!
What a fabulous day at Cathy's Fried Mud workshop! Such an informed day making Guinea fowl! I learned a lot and had fun which is what I came for and I have wetted my appetite for more. Thank you so much Cathy for your expert help.
This is my 4th or 5th workshop with Cathy and every time is a wonderful new experience. I learn so much, the atmosphere is calm and relaxed and her new studio is homey. I also love when we all sit together for lunch, another great part to the day. There is lots to learn and take in while creating your own personal masterpiece.I have attended on my own and with a friend, I highly recommend her workshops. You walk away feeling a deeply accomplished. Thank you Cathy
Great fun workshop, beautiful studio. Cathy is an excellent teacher and very patient. Highly recommend her workshops.
another great class, love them to bits.
A great workshop Cathy. Thanks to your attention and assistance everyone achieved the goal of making a bathing beauty - even those who were new to clay. I'll definitely come to another workshop.
Amazing day with an amazing artist. Great fir a novice like myself, can’t wait to do more classes
A great workshop. The space was so well set up and organised for the workshop. A great day with a variety of different sculptures being made. Cathy was gentle and helpful. Enjoyed the company of the others who were friendly and supportive. Would definitely recommend this workshop.
Had a great time as usual at one of Cathy's workshops. Love the lady I created - with lots of help and advice from Cathy. Will definitely be back for another class 😀
Cathy is one special person, she is a wonderful tutor, has amazing skill and any one that attends a workshop can be assured of unconditional assistance in a nurturing space.
Cathy provides an amazing atmosphere of encouragement and advice to produce a fabulous piece of clay sculpture .The studio is inspirational and provides the most wonderful place to enjoy your day
Hello Cathy, Thank you for a wonderful day at Fried Mudd chicken workshop. You've created a lovely relaxed atmosphere and it was fun to create and explore designs, embellishments and colour. I'm looking forward to seeing the final outcome. Cheers, Moira
Thoroughly enjoyed the day! Cathy was great and I am very pleased with my bathing beauty.
Such an amazing day, with some amazing women. It was so interesting to learn how to put together my 'Winter Beauty' and see her personality come to life! Would thoroughly recommend a day spent with Cathy, creating something so beautiful out of a lump of clay! 😀😀😀😀
A great workshop with a lovely bunch of ladies. Cathy was very patient and helpful. We had great food in Cathy's beautiful studio. Would happily recommend this workshop.
What a fabulous workshop with Cathy! Highly recommend for any level of experience with clay. Loads of fun.
I had great fun doing the workshop, meeting other people and seeing their work, Cathy is a great teacher.I will certainly recommend it, for something different. A great day overall, and you come out with a piece that is your own creation.
Loved the Bathing Beauties workshop. Cathy is very encouraging and helpful and, for a beginner, I learned a lot of techniques in clay sculpture. I will definitely do another workshop with Cathy. They are good value and fun.
