In brief:

NEW! - Discover the magic of ceramics with this 6-week course in the studio. Immerse yourself in a world of clay and discover the art of shaping with your own hands. During the course we learn different handbuilding techniques, and you have time to work on your own mini collection for your home!

What is the hand-cranking method?

The hand squeezing technique is an age-old technique in ceramics in which you squeeze the clay with your hands and fingers and shape it into the desired shape. During the workshop you will be guided step by step in the process of building your own created works of art using this technique.

You start by kneading and preparing the clay, then slowly and gently begin to squeeze and shape the clay into the desired shape of your mug. You can play with the thickness of the walls, the shape and the handle to create a mug that suits you completely. During the course we will work on coil building, slab rolling and hand pinching, among other things.

The price of the course includes:

- Coffee, tea and something tasty.

- Choice of natural or black clay and underglaze.

- You may choose a glaze that I will order for you, to glaze your items during the glazing class.

- Clay for home, so that you can practice again in peace.

- 2-hour lessons where you can work in peace and have plenty of time to sink into your creative bubble.

- The opportunity to start your own mini project during one of the last lessons and create what you want.

- Guidance and useful tips & tricks about ceramics. You will learn different techniques and useful facts.

- At the end of the course you will have made at least: a mug, three breakfast plates, a vase, spoons, bowls and a bowl. The items you've made are dishwasher safe and strong, so you can treat them (with love) like your own tableware. You may want to give an item to your grandchildren as an heirloom later. Or putting something in a time capsule for people 2359 years from now.
