SLOW CLAY CLUB

Now that the days are getting shorter, the weather outside more miserable, it is time again to come "gezellig" together inside. How better can we spend those dark cold evenings that working with our hands and clay!  Make your own morning mug, breakfast bow, candle holder, soap dish, christmas presents or birthday gifts! 

One's a week I open my studio for you to come and work on your own projects. My kiln can be used to fire your work, and you can learn how to glaze your piece by yourself.

 

* required is that you have participated in one of the basic courses, like a "Clay in the Woods" or another indoor workshop to know the basics of handbuilding. Plus, If you want to glaze your own pieces you need to have done a introduction workshop about glazing.

* For the open studio during a "slow clay club" evening, you pay per session 15,- (2,5 hours) plus de costs for material & firing/glazing which is 7,- per kilo.

volledig traject 425,- 

wat is natuur coaching:

methodiek om door te vertragen in de natuur en door middel van het inzetten van de symboliek in de natuur, inzichten, antwoorden en refelectie te krijgen op situaties in je leven. 

Dat doen we in 5 losse stappen, waar we elke keer vertragen en los kijken naar wat er speelt.

1e en tevens ook de intake sessie kijken we naar hoe de situatie is zoals die nu is.

2e sessie wordt er langzaam gekeken naar wat het verlangen is in deze situatie, wat zou je aan het einde van het traject willen bereiken om stapjes dichter bij in de juiste richting zijn gekomen.

3e sessie, wat weerhoud jou om dit al te bereiken.

4e sessie, we kijken naar wat je allemaal al meedraagt en hebt aan tools en kwaliteiten

5e sessie is ter bekrachting en afronding, om met een wat concretere stappen te komen. 

natuur coaching en het zijn in de natuur brengt, ruimte, vertraging, rust, herlderheid, verstilling, kracht, duidelijkheid.

door het inzetten van de symboliek die overal te vinden is in de natuur, kom je tot nieuwe inzichten of wordt het kleien stemmetje bevestigd.

Het gaat om het terugkeren naar jezelf. wat er in jou speelt en leeft. de natuur is hier een mooie spiegel voor. 

samen met mij maar vorral met jezelf ga je dit process aan van vertragen.
