Minna has been teaching ceramics sine 2010 and has extensive experience with all ages and abilities. Minna brings her love of nature to her students, aiming to teach in a way that emphasises creating without need of specised tools and equipment. Minna focuses on the use of everyday objects and the hands to create and nuture the creative spirit through clay. From beginners to the more experienced, Minna encourages her students to try new things, and to draw from the natural world around us for both inspiration, decoration and materials.
Minna teaches from her own studio, leading both private workshops as well as larger groups such as school groups and corporate teams. Minna has recently worked with Candlebark School, leading a Wild Clay Workshop and regularly works in conjunction with The Lakehouse, Daylesford to give guests an authentic experience in ceamics. Minna also tutors at Castlemaine Clay on a weekly basis.
