WORKSHOPS

SLOW CLAY WORKSHOP

"When working with clay, time slows down. Sculpting with your hands connecting with this earthy material, brings you from your head straight into the moment".  WHENLIFEISSLOW  

 

During this 2,5 hour workshop you will be introduced to the basics of working with clay. The focus is on handbuilding, showing you some different techniques. You will be guided step by step through the process of making your own piece(s). From a simple cup, mug, bowl or little vase, your are the artist! 

 

SLOW CLAY PROCESS

What happens after the workshop?

The pieces you make during the workshop need to dry for 2 weeks. After that they will be carefully fired and glazed.

 

Working with clay takes some patience, it will be about 4 weeks later that your clay pieces are finished!

A pick up/drop off moment can be arranged or sending it to you is possible (postage costs 6,95 excluded).

CLAY IN

THE WOODS
W

CONNECTING WITH NATURE THROUGH CLAY

Last summer season you could join in on of the "Clay in the Woods" outdoor workshops. Where we spend time outside in the forest, sat down working with our hands and clay.

During these workshop basic handbuilding techniques were shown, to create an unique hand made piece. Elements in the natural surroundings were integrated into the sculptures, like leaf imprints or structures made with twigs or seed pods. Spending a few hours in nature took us for a moment out of the daily hustle, slowing down in nature connecting with just the green around us and in good company.

 

Looking forward to continue next summer season.

Hope seeing you in the woods!
