Have you ever wanted to learn pottery and have no wheel?
During this pottery class we will talk about the basics of clay and I will demonstrate 3 basic hand-building techniques. You will have some time to start a project and I will be there to answer questions. We will be working with air-dry clay so that you do not need a kiln, but the techniques are easily applied to any type of clay you may be working with. This class will come with a home pottery kit with 1kg air-dry clay and tools.
The workshops take place online (on Zoom) and lasts around 2,5 hours.
After the class you will receive a PDF with a summary of my tips and instructions. The class is in English but I can answer questions in Italian, German and French if needed.
Is this a gift? If yes, let me know when you order and I will print a nice voucher gift card. You can also personalise your message on the card.
Once you book a class, I will send you the big kit around a week before the class. See below for what is in the kit. The course covers:
- Basics of handling clay
- Pinch pot
- Slab building
- Carving clay/giving clay an interesting texture
- Discussion of decorating clay with acrylic colors (this class does NOT cover glazes). Because decorating can only happen once the piece is dry, I will give you ideas but you will not be able to decorate your piece right away.
- a bowl of water
- a surface you can work on, ideally covered by a piece of cloth
