Ceramic Design Course

Recommended if you want to learn core practical and theoretical principals of ceramics in a fun hands-on way, in an inspiring environment of a professional pottery workshop.

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 or interior objects.

4 Group Classes (7pm-9pm):

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.

Engobes
Current session will be devoted to Engobes – one of the main materials used to give color to your ceramic creations.
You will learn different techniques of working with it. As Engobes are applied to green ware (not yet fired clay objects), during this session you will be
welcome to continue experimenting with hand-building.

Painting on Ceramics
From fine Chinese porcelain to rough Indian earthware – painting has been a part of the game ever since pottery exists.
During this session you will learn numerous ways, materials and techniques to create stunning colorful patterns on your ceramic object.

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:

personal consultation time with the course holder each week (to make sure you successfully advance with your project and
know exactly, what is the next craftsmanship step towards a splendid result)

6h studio time, in case your project would require more time, you are welcome to do some parts of the work at home or
book additional studio time at a rate of 10 euro/h

The course will be held in a small group (max 8 people) to make sure that each participant gets personal guidance.

Description

It is a 2-DAY Workshop, yet you can decide to book only one of the days and go through only part of the learning process with us. In case you only book DAY 1, your creation will be fired and glazed transparent for you.

DAY 1 / 7 to 9:30 pm / HAND-BUILDING
In the current session you will learn tips and tricks about creating irregular shapes with clay. It will be all about hand-building, so no throwing wheel involved. We will start with a 40 min lecture introducing you to different types of clay, different stages of drying and firing, ways of preparing it and ways of shaping it into a final piece. Then we will get right into practice and get your hands dirty. Each participant will get a chance to create his/her own little vase, shaped according to his or her personal master plan.

DAY 2 / 7 to 9:30 pm / GLAZING
The current session is fully devoted to bringing colour into your ceramic object. There are several colouring techniques in pottery, but in the current session we will fully focus on glazing – covering your object with a combination of chemical elements that turn into glass-like plating after firing. We will start with a 40 min lecture, introducing you to the different techniques and possibilities of glazing. Once all the basic rules are shared, you will get down to glazing your vase according to your desired plan, under an attentive eye of your instructor.
