If you didn’t manage to master your sourdough starter or hula-hoop skills during the last lockdown (or, frankly, you just want to get your hands dirty and take your lockdown frustration out on a block of clay), now’s the chance to give learning a new skill another last-minute whirl. Clay Sydney is taking one of its most popular handbuilding classes – its Wine and Clay Nights – online, every Friday.

Clay Sydney Live kicks off at 7.30pm, with a livestream of the class, hosted by their very clever and entertaining tutors. They’ll take you through the process of making a mug, a planter, a vase, or whatever else you feel like creating. All you need to do is buy one of their Clay At Home Kits online; they come in three sizes, each tailored to the size and type of project. Each kit includes clay, tools and cheat sheets. Clay Sydney will even glaze and fire your handiwork once lockdown ends.

The studio – which has three locations around the inner west – strongly encourages punters pick up a bottle of wine and their favourite takeaway and make a night of it. Kits are available via courier or can be picked up from Clay’s Enmore studio.

Clay Sydney Live starts at 7.30pm every Friday.
