After many years operating workshops around Brisbane and earning a cult following with her own handcrafted pieces, ceramicist Bonnie Hislop now boasts her own bricks-and-mortar boutique and painting studio in California Lane. The shelves in Bonnie’s store are stocked with a selection of hand-built and adorned pieces – each imbued with a joyful spirit and oodles of colour. Bonnie uses studio days early in the week to craft new items, so customers can always expect new pieces to pop up week to week. Those keen to try painting something for themselves can sign up for a casual painting session, painting a coffee cup on site before its fired and made available to pick up within two weeks. If you really want to get stuck in, Bonnie hosts weekly painting classes on Thursday evenings where attendees paint themed ceramic pieces fashioned by Bonnie herself.
