This course takes place on one weekend and is perfect for a short holiday.
Discover the many possibilities to create beautiful ceramic pieces without a potter's wheel. In this course you will learn the basic hand building techniques such as slab technique, coil technique and pinching technique. You will also learn how to glaze your pieces.
This course is taught in English (con un poco di italiano).
During one weekend, on 3 sessions of 2,5 hours each, you will learn to build different shapes and objects, such as cups, plates, bowls, etc. I will demonstrate every technique and of course I will be by your side the entire time with tips and help. At the end you will have made several of your own handmade and glazed ceramic pieces.
Due to the small group size of max. 6 people, each participant will be able to get enough one-on-one time with me to get the help they need.
In the last session, I will provide you with bowls made by me, which you can use to learn how to glaze and even keep them after they are finished. I'll explain different glazing techniques and give tips, demonstrate glazing on an object, and then help you decorate the provided pieces with different coloured glazes.
Since your own handmade pieces need to dry for a few days and then be fired once before they can be glazed, I will take care of the glazing. You can choose your favourite colours from a small selection of my glazes.
I will send all glazed pieces to your home a few weeks after the end of the course (if you are on site longer, you can of course pick them up personally at the shop around two weeks after the course).
The shipping costs are determined individually depending on the destination country and are calculated in addition to the course price. If you are not sure how much shipping to your country costs, please contact me before booking the course and I will give you the necessary information!
