Olla workshop

February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Potter and permaculture guru Clare Wimmer is offering a hands-on workshop where you can create your very own olla!
Ollas are permeable clay pots used around the world as passive irrigation systems. These wonderful pots will help keep your garden watered through this dry summer!

These workshops will be conducted in collaborative groups to achieve one olla per person at the end of the day (finished ollas can be collected from WEC following firing in the kiln).

Come get your hands dirty, play with some clay and create a wonderful new way to keep your plants watered and happy!

Please register your interest at WEC – either pop in to the centre, call 825 0480 or email

Places are limited (max 7 people per workshop)
Cost: $54
To secure your space please deposit $54 into the Whaingaroa Environment Centre bank account:03-1563-0036271-00 with reference OLLA

note: if both workshops are not filled to capacity (less than 14 people), we may need to juggle everyone into one date.
