"Slowing down with clay"
Working with my hands and this earthly material have taught me to slow down. I see this creative process as an act of mindfulness that asks for attention and patience bringing you back to the present moment.
These workshops offer the space for you to experience the power of the "Slow art of clay" yourself.
During this workshop you will be shown hand building techniques that have been used since the beginning of time. This way you will be using just your hands to make your own ceramic creations in a simple and satisfying way.
Whether you want to make a set of cups, a plate, bowl or candle holder, you are free to decide, you are the artist!
All creative levels are welcome and there is no previous clay experience needed.
YOUR CLAY CREATIONS
We will be working with an white, earthy and sandy coloured stoneware clay. At the end of the workshop you choose a glazes as a finishing touch. All clay creations go back to my studio where the slow clay process is continued. After 8-10 weeks you receive your clay pieces back completely finished and ready to use in your daily life.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT
THE PAST HAND BUILDING WORKSHOPS
The workshop is a nice step towards learning about clay, Laura has a nice way of teaching and instructing. You come across very warm and open!
I had a lovely slow afternoon with a small group of others, crafting the clay and sipping away some tea. The atmosphere was very cozy and allowed me to concentrate and relax fully which is not so available in the daily routine.... Best part is that, now I have three beautiful, ocean-coloured and slightly crooked mugs with my finger prints on them to reminding me to take it slow at times. Thank you Laura!
I expected to switch off my mind, and I did just that!
