If an evening spent scoffing cheese, quaffing wine and mastering the art of ceramics sounds like your kind of lockdown situation, then you'd best clear all other weekend plans. The cheese experts at Maker & Monger have joined forces with The Pot Dispensary ceramics studio and created the boredom-busting iso kit you've been waiting for.

Designed for two-to-four people, the new Cheese, Wine & Pottery Pack ($190) is a jam-packed evening of fun in a box, which you can have sent directly to your doorstep. Inside, you'll find all the bits and pieces needed to whip up a few pottery masterpieces: five kilograms of stoneware clay, a cotton work surface, a ceramics toolkit and a step-by-step guide. Plus, there's plenty more expert guidance over on The Pot Dispensary's Instagram IGTV channel, with a series of easy-to-follow video tutorials for making bowls, incense holders and more.

While you flex all that creative muscle, you can enjoy some hard-earned vino. The box comes with your choice of Mosaique wine, either the Clotilde Davenne Crémant de Bourgogne fizz, or a 2019 Domaine Raphael Chopin gamay. They're both French and they both pair well to the kit's other star additions — a trio of cheeses and accompaniments, as chosen by Maker & Monger's Anthony Femia. Dig into the likes of a Marcel Petite comté, gorgonzola with honeycomb, the Delice de Bourgogne triple cream brie, Bonilla a la Vista potato crisps, fresh grapes and quince paste.

Pick up is available from the Prahran Market, or you can arrange delivery to select suburbs for an additional fee.
