Love Gardening? Want to be more sustainable? Then this workshop is for you.

During this three hour workshop you shall make your own olla using terracotta clay and the coil building method. Your olla will hold approximately three to four litres of water, and we will also make a lid. Your garden creation will remain at the studio to dry and be kiln fired.

Once you learn the making method you can make as many as you need at home for your garden and bring them into the studio for kiln firing.

 

An Olla is an ancient watering/irrigation system constructed with unglazed porous clay pots. Olla is the Spanish word for “pot” and is a clay pot used for irrigation. An olla can save 30 percent to 70 percent of the water used by other irrigation methods Veggies and flowers love ollas, because they provide just the right amount of water exactly when the plants need it.
