All workshops are in ENGLISH
On two dates we will form the first pieces on the potter's wheel together in a relaxed atmosphere. Each workshop is made up of 7 hours in total. Two consecutive days of 3 hours each (Saturday and Sunday) and an additional 1 hour, approximately 2-3 weeks after the workshop, for glazing. The date and time for this session we will be discussed and decided together as a group.
Day 1: In the first session I will show you how to center a piece of clay, opening it, pulling the walls and giving shape to the mass on the potter's wheel. Afterwards, I will guide you on how to make a small bowl, cup and mug. Most participants throw between 2-4 pieces during each workshop, which you will take home once the course has been completed.
Day 2: In the second session, you will be shown to trim your leather hard pieces created from the day before. You will learn how to refine the shape of your vessels and form a foot ring using various trimming tools. Mugs will get a handle attached once trimming is completed.
Your pieces will need to dry for approximately 2 weeks. Afterwards, I will put them through their first firing, known as "bisque firing" at 950°C. On an agreed day we will meet for approximately 1 hour to glaze your pieces with a choice of available glazes. Finally, your vessels will go through a second firing, the so called "glaze firing" at 1240°C. All items will be ready for pick up around 2-3 weeks after this process (you will be informed via email when your pieces will be available for pick up).
