What to Expect: Have you heard of Kurinuki? Take a journey back in time and immerse yourself in the traditional Japanese technique of shaping and decorating ceramics. Kurinuki, meaning hollowing or excavating, is the very technique you'll be working with. Originating from Japan's rich cultural heritage, Kurinuki has evolved into an art form that embraces both precision and creativity.

Under the expert guidance of Sigita Hjort, an experienced instructor at Lodewa Studio & Boutique, you'll embark on a transformative journey through clay. From the moment you touch the raw material, you'll feel a connection to centuries of craftsmanship and tradition. Kurinuki is not merely about shaping clay; it's about channeling your creativity and intuition into each delicate movement of your hands.

As you delve into the process, you'll witness the clay transform under your fingertips, gradually revealing the form it desires to take. With Kurinuki, every cup created is a unique expression of the artist's vision, shaped by the subtleties of touch and the flow of inspiration. Each hollowed-out space and meticulously carved detail reflects not only technical skill but also the inner journey of the creator.

Experience firsthand how a single block of clay is meticulously hollowed and shaped both inside and out, resulting in a surface that closely resembles natural rock formations. The texture, the curves, the imperfections – they all contribute to the charm and character of your finished piece.

Once your cup is complete, you'll have the choice of two glazes - black and white - to perfect your creation. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of monochrome or the striking contrast between light and dark, the glazing process adds the final touch to your masterpiece.

This workshop isn't just about learning a technique; it's about embracing the artistry of Kurinuki and discovering the endless possibilities it offers. It's a chance to tap into your creative potential, connect with like-minded individuals, and leave with not just a cup, but a tangible symbol of your artistic journey.

This workshop emphasizes an intuitive and meditative approach to ceramics, welcoming participants of all levels. Whether you're a seasoned artist or a curious beginner, Kurinuki invites you to explore the depths of your imagination and create something truly extraordinary. Join us at Lodewa Studio & Boutique and unlock the secrets of Kurinuki – where tradition meets innovation, and art comes to life.
