A monthly course for beginners and advances students, all levels are welcome!
In this course, I will teach how to build a small-scale decorative objects from scratch without using any machinery or molds.
We can work on several objects, like a mug, planter, or vase, and of course, a sculpture.
We will start from the design and stylization and learn where and how to look for inspiration; you will see how the random animal can be turned into a creature full of character that can tell a whole story of its own. We will create a fantastic toad, forever young axolotl, a wise toad, an elephant, or whenever you have in mind.
More advanced students can try to create a standing sculpture, that requires a but more of skills and your attention.
We are going to create an animal character and sculpt it in clay, using hand-building techniques, following the process of sketching and modeling, making test tiles, practicing how to shape the details, and painting with glazes and underglazes.
There are 4 lessons per 4 hours each in a ceramics course, we meet on Saturdays four weeks in a row + 2 classes for independent work at the studio that you can use for decorating all objects we have made through the course, or making extra pieces.
There is a 6-week course for kids in a small group of 6-8 participants.
A monthly course consists of 6 lessons with a duration of 2h, split into blocks per 45min with a 15min break in between, we talk, let our creations to dry before painting part, have a snack. We offer a range of organic homemade pies!
You can come at the end to help, talk a bit and feast your eyes on the masterpieces made by your small Picassos and Rodins.
There are 6 lessons per 2 h each every Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 13:00 and from. Possible extra dates during the holidays and weekdays, check out my schedule or contact directly.
A private course
The private course has almost the same program as a group course but suits more advanced students who want to dive deeper into ceramics and make a standing sculpture or a teapot.
You will have even more of my attention and a tailored schedule that is comfortable for you.
The program is totally up to you; I teach in a performative form, working simultaneously by your side, so you can follow me step-by-step but sculpt your unique piece.
Also, I show a few extra techniques; we decorate with underglazes, glazes, and luster; we will try sgraffito and paint with slips and stains. With such diverse skills in your toolbox, you can create an intricate and more complex character in clay.
Also, I'll explain some general knowledge of ceramic technology: how to mix glazes, engobes, and slips, and how to program the kiln so you can set up your studio when the time comes. The themes are up to you; not necessary to work in "my style" I will happily support any individual project and help you develop your unique voice.
The schedule is flexible and discussed individually with each student, the price starts from 500€ for a one-day workshop (approx 6h +a lunch break),
Private lessons and consultations are possible too; write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
