Ceramic Design Course



Learn practical and theoretical principals of ceramics with us in a fun hands-on way.

Our Ceramic Design Course will give you a solid introduction to all the core ceramic techniques and materials. Plus tremendous amount of fun working with clay. Learn an ancient craft while discovering ways to integrate it into contemporary design fields, which could be anything from jewellery to tableware, interior objects and art pieces.

4 Group Classes:

DAY 1 - Hand-Building and Ceramic Design Current session will be devoted to techniques of working with clay. You will get introduced to qualities and capabilities of clay and create your first ceramic piece.

DAY 2 - Slab-Building This technique is incredibly useful if not to say essential for creating ceramic vessels of numerous shapes and functions and adding a new dimension to your work. In this session you will try it out, learn different tips and trick on handling the clay with this approach.

DAY 3 - Sculpture Current session will be devoted to Sculptural work with clay. Ceramics as a medium goes far beyond functional tableware and this class will allow you to explore the techniques that could take you to the next level of 3-dimensional expression.

DAY 4 - Glazes, Colorstains & Oxides Glazes are the queens of coloring, colorstains & Oxides are the best way to spice it up! You will learn how to create stunning and experimental glass-platings on your clay objects.



On top of that, each of the participants will be offered:  

  • Inspiring project-based homework to make sure that through this course you confidently step into whatever you were dreaming about making
  • Assistance and tools required to set up a ceramic working station at home (wherever you have 1m2 of table surface) + 2 kg of clay. If your project will grow into a big scale, additional clay will be available for purchase via hello@barsega-studio.com or at your workshop time via the teacher (physical purchases with cash only).
  • Personal consultation time with the course holder (to make sure you successfully advance with your project and know exactly, what is the next craftsmanship step towards a splendid result)
  • Covered firing costs of the ceramic items you create at home during the first two weeks of the course, and all the items you make in class in first and second sessions. For further firings after the Ceramic Design Course, you can join the Studio Membership at Barsega Studio.
