Pottery speaks to our creativity and awakens the desire to experiment and play. In ceramics, we have fingers covered in clay, a plastic and flexible material that can be moulded and processed in infinitely many ways. When burned and glazed, it turns into a solid and waterproof material.


Ceramics are both a craft and a form of expression. You get control of a lot of fundamental things about the clay crafting it. There will be demonstrations of different techniques, so you can learn to rotate, shape, build, model and mould. You learn about what you can do to beautify the surface of your pottery and learn how to use tricks, glazes and much more. That allows you to develop your individual expression and design.

We work with both functional items - cups, bowls, jewellery, vases - and with more abstract aesthetic pieces. Based on your own ideas and projects, the teaching ignites a desire to experiment and test the material. Along the way, you train your eye so that you can make a shape more precise. You will learn more about what makes a simple cup and how you can augment it in many ways.
