Organic textures: Hand-building Clay workshop

Come join us to discover your creative side in this hands-on clay activity.

In this fun workshop, we bring the garden to the clay studio.

We will use organic textures like plants and flowers to create beautiful textures on the Clay.

Everyone will make their piece by pressing the plants into the Clay. The impression left is highly detailed, showing the vein formations of these textures.

I will demonstrate and give step-by-step instructions about the process, including how to roll, join, ‘glue’, tidy, and refine the clay pieces.

I will provide the organic textures, but you can bring your own if you have something special you wish to use.

Participants will decorate their pieces using underglaze colors.

When the project is finished, you will leave it in my studio so it can get dry. Then, I will glaze it in clear glaze and fire it twice in my kiln, and it will be ready for pick up after two weeks.

What can you make?

Up to two pieces: A plate, vase, cup, or tile.

What’s included in the price?

The Clay, the use of the Studio tools, transparent glaze, underglaze colors, two firing to finish your object, and tea & cookies.

  • The workshop is in English.
  • Bring clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.
  • For all levels. The workshop is intended for beginners but is also suitable for the more experienced.
  • Please be on time or a bit before
  • I offer a relaxed and supportive environment.
