Saturday 21 January at North Freo Social Farm
Summer time is tomato time and that means passata! There are about as many ways to make passata as there are varieties of tomatoes - and that’s a lot! Join us to learn just one tried and true method used by Amy and her family. You will see how to set up an electric and a hand passata machine, see our secret method for making thick and rich passata and how to then preserve it.
This workshop includes light morning tea.

Learn the basics of making pinch pot and coiled ceramic vessels in this three hour workshop. With instruction from local ceramicist Shupiwe Chongwe you will learn to hand-build your very own unique mug or indoor planter. All works will be slowly dried, fired and glazed by the teacher- ready to pick up ~ 4 weeks after the workshop.
Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and bring along a tea towel or apron.
Shupiwe Chongwe is a Walyalup (Fremantle) raised ceramicist focusing on creating unique pieces that speak to her love of nature and strong family connection to ceramics. Shupiwe's journey with ceramics started from a young age.
Growing up surrounded by the art of her ceramicist father, Shupiwe was inspired to also explore the world of ceramics. Her family connection to ceramics dates back even further, to her great, great grandmother who was a practicing potter in Zambia.
Shupiwe began experimenting with ceramics under the direction of her father, later moving on to study at North Metropolitan TAFE (Perth, WA) whilst continuing her own practice from her home studio.
Shupiwe mainly practices with stoneware clays producing sculptural forms as well as functional art for the home. She experiments with Raku firing, employing traditional techniques to produce erratic, unique patterns on ceramic forms.
