"Slowing down with clay"

HANDBUILDING WORKSHOP

SLOW ART OF CLAY

Working with my hands and this earthly material have taught me to slow down. It is a creative process that asks for attention and patience and therefore trains you to be in the moment.
These workshops offer the space for you to experience the slow art of clay. 

During this workshop you will be shown hand building techniques such as "pinch pot" and "coil building" that have been used since the beginning of time.


This way you will be just using 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!

SLOW AFTERNOON

Find upcoming workshop data below held in my home studio in The Hague.

It is also an option to choose the date/time/location for a workshop yourself when gathering a group of min 2 - max 6 people. Feel free to contact me for further details and pricing.

 

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.

 

It takes 1,5 week before the pieces are completely dry for the first firing. Then the glaze is applied by me followed by the final firing. It can take up to 3/4 weeks before your clay creations are ready.

In The Hague we can arrange a pick-up time. Sending the ceramics is also possible, but please bear in mind that you will have to pay another 6.75 euros for postage.
