HAND-BUILDING POTTERY COURSE - Intro

Weekend of the 7th & 8th of October from 10 - 5pm with teacher Camille Steyaert

  • Starts 7 oct.
  • 210 euros

Service Description

Teacher and studio founder Camille welcomes you for this in depth course over one weekend that will allow you to dive deep into clay and get your hands busy in a little studio hidden in the center of Brussels. PROGRAM: The course is playful and informative to get acquainted with the basics of the ceramic process through different exercises. You will learn about the different textures of clay and how to work with them, discover 3 ancestral hand-building techniques : pinching, coiling and slabbing and make a pottery vessel out of each and learn to 'sculpt' them for refined details and character at "leather hard" texture. The course shall be given in English. Please note this course does not include the potter's-wheel technique. We propose a separate intro course for this approach and recommend it after this hand-building course. PRICE: * Includes all the material and the firings (cooking of clay) for your hand-built vessels made during the weekend *The time to glaze your work is not included in the weekend fee (see below under 'Glazing' chapter) SMALL GROUP: The intro course welcomes maximum 8 pairs of hands. AFTER THE COURSE: Completing this course means you are welcome to become part of our studio member's community, and continue practicing to hand-build your ceramic projects at your own rhythm during our weekly member sessions with a Membership Pass (for more info see our website menu). Please note that you cannot take your pieces home at the end of the weekend ! The ceramic process has several steps, so patience is a real virtue in ceramics ;) GLAZING: 10 or so days after the weekend, your work will have been fired at 950° and be ready to glaze. Here are 3 options : *If you have not yet glazed in our studio, you may sign-up to one of our Glazing Intro Classes (more info on our "Introduction Courses" menu'). *If you have already been initiated to how to glaze in our studio, you may book yourself a table during a Member Session (with or without a Membership Pass). * We can glaze your work for you in a glossy transparent glaze for no extra cost TERMS AND CONDITIONS : **Please ensure you can attend all 2 dates of the course as it is a process. The classes are usually full so we can't move people between them. ** If you are not able to complete your work to the detail you would like during the course hours, you can continue working on your pieces during our member opening hours by booking a table. This is not included in the pack of the course.
