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, in which you will learn the properties of this material while trying out and learning about every handbuilding technique used to form and sculpt clay. 

You will get 0,5 - 1kg of stoneware to work with. 

As we explore the different sculpting techniques, you will create up to 3 ceramic pieces that we will fire. They will be ready for pick up in 4-5 weeks after the workshop. 

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

Course structure

The workshop lasts 3,5 hours or 210 minutes. In this time we will:

  • Cover theory about 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 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
  • 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 clay with ease. 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. 

Come to learn something new, or simply have an immersive experience worth your time.

Receiving your piece

Ceramics take time to be fully developed, taking 4-5 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 :)
