Service Description

START THE NEW YEAR SLOW with your both hands in the clay. "Clay Hand-building workshop" 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 levels are welcome to join this handbuilding workshop where you will experience the joy and fulfilment of working with your hands and this earthy material (no pottery wheel needed). ​At the end of the workshop all pieces will undergo a transformational process, "the slow clay". Starting with the slowly drying off the clay, bisque firing, glazing, followed by the final firing. **For the workshops in January the processing time will be a bit longer, up to 4 months**.
