About the Event

Introduction

This is the perfect workshop for anyone interested in ceramics - earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. The event is part lecture, part workshop. We will discuss the properties of these materials while trying out and learning about every technique used to form and sculpt clay. 

You will get 0,5kg of stoneware to work with. 

As we explore the different sculpting techniques, you might end up creating a ceramic piece you want to fire, to later take home (ca. 3-4 weeks after the workshop).

The focus of this workshop is knowledge, discovery and connection to the material.

We will explore and cover:

The workshop lasts 4 hours. In these hours we will:

  • Cover the learning material (properties, differences and usage, its stages and its qualities in each stage) 
  • Explore the different form-building techniques (slab, coil, pinch building + theory in slipcasting, molding and wheel-throwing)
  • Try out different texture/sculpting techniques (additive, subtractive, impressing)
  • Learn the do's and don'ts of working with clay, so you can avoid common mistakes (cracking, explosion, breaking)

We urge you to not expect to create a fireable piece, so you can freely explore and try out each technique without limitation.  We will glaze + fire your finished piece later at our studio (incl. in the price).

We will finalize the workshop material with the knowledge on:

  • How to trim your piece
  • Cover how to work with a leather hard / bone dry piece.
  • Bisque firing and glaze firing, learn more about the firing processes
  • Choosing your glaze and glazing your pieces

Expected outcome

After this workshop you will be able to grasp the world of ceramics. The techniques and knowledge in this workshop will help set a secure ground for your imagination to run wild - you will further be able to continue working with clay with the knowledge necessary to progress and feel capable to make anything your heart desires.

Recommended Level

This workshop is perfect for beginners, who have little to no experience with ceramics. This workshop can also be a very knowledge-packed workshop for those who would like to refresh their knowledge, relax and explore the various techniques building a more in-depth overview of all the properties ceramics have.

Receiving your piece

Ceramics take time to be fully developed, taking 3-4 weeks from start to finish. Expect to receive your piece/pieces within 4 weeks from the day your workshop started. Be aware of this if you want to give any of your creations to someone as a gift :)
