Get to know the basics of creating a ceramic object. In this workshop we will be using the traditional hand pinching method to create a bowl out of clay. Once we have fashioned our bowl, we will turn our attention to the surface of the work. Using different types of foliage, we will create imprints on the clay, you will see some amazing prints appear. You’re also free to add your own creative ideas to the design of the work!
At the end of the workshop you will choose the colour of glaze for your bowl. The teacher will apply the glaze in her own studio and finish it off in the kiln. After three weeks you can pick up your artwork at Hae Winkel.
