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 / 2.5h / 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 / 2.5h / 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.

Matcha & Pottery Ceremony
Create your daily ritual and handcrafted pottery for it.
March 22/ 2020, 10:00-13:30
Ceremonies and Rituals used to play a very important role in the lives of our ancestors and are still deeply ingrained in some cultures.
We aim to “translate” them into the language of our contemporary tribe and recreate them in a manner that fits organically into our modern day life.
A “Matcha Ceremony” is a beautiful way to start your day and set your intentions. Every Day. Let us show you how and help you create your very own ritual.
You will also learn to shape and form your own ceramic matcha bowl from scratch that will remind you daily of your purest intentions.
- Learn about the history and cultivation of Matcha and it’s ceremonial uses
- Prepare and enjoy a Matcha Latte as a part of modern day “Matcha Ceremony”
- Take part in a Guided & Silent Meditation to have a smooth transition into crafting
- Learn the basics of pottery craft
- Create your own Matcha Bowl as a part of a pottery workshop
- Get all the knowledge – and the ceremonial bowl itself – needed for your daily practice
Rituals and Ceremonies are not necessarily about connecting to forest fairies and full-moon-spirits (even though they could be). We would like to guide you through a down-to-earth approach to daily Rituals as a tool for being present, focused, calm and grateful throughout your day.
