It is not longer obligatory to wear a mask in our studio. Use if you feel like using it. (edit 27.4.)
Please wash your hands as you come to studio. If you are sick, stay at home.
At the first workshop you will get 800 g of clay and you can build anything you want out of it. We'll teach you some basic hand building techics and we'll transform the clay into an object /several little objects. Let's forget all the stress and craziness together with our hands in clay! Clay is a very relaxing and terapeutical material. It is more than welcomed to concentrate more on the doing itself than the result. No previous experience is required to attend the course. Please note that we don't throw on the wheel on this course, we handbuild.
At the glazing workshop you'll get to try glazing on your ceramics objects! We'll teach you everything necessary about glazing at the beginning of the session.
Price: 95 €.
Included: teaching, materials, VAT 24 % and bisque and glaze firing.
Sign up to the workshop is indelible.
Sign ups that are canceled under 24 hours before the workshop cannot be refunded.
Your ceramics works will be out of glaze firing in a week from the glazing workshop.
Please pick them up from the studio on Monday 16.5. at 17:00-19:00.
If you have asthma, please note that clay frees clay dust, so there will be dust in the studio.
