The Fried Mudd Studio is situated just 3 kilometres from Maleny village, in the beautiful green rolling hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, about an hours drive north of Brisbane.

The studio is run by Cathy Lawley, an award winning potter and artist best known for her whimsical frogs and collectable clay Hens.

Cathy shares her passion and style in these fun workshops where your creations come to life using the ancient Japanese form of firing raku, Aussie style. Once fired you’ll be able to take home something YOU created!

” Each piece comes from within and the characters come to life on the pieces I create. For over 28 years as a clay artist and potter, it is my desire that each sculpture lets you experience the fun and joy I put into each piece, and leaves you feeling a little lighter with a smile on your face.”
Fun in the Mud workshops for all ages, is an experience you will always treasure, its an investment in a memory that will last a life time. They are designed to be creative and fun, its very addictive!
