A mindful take on introducing ceramics, offering both a vastly informative and engaging start in the craft, hosted by Bonafide Studio.

Our One Day Ceramics Workshop is a single-day course, tailored to help the participants understand the ceramic world from A-Z, and thoroughly introduce them with the processes behind, as well as to instill confidence in independently creating vessels in this material.

The course is knowledge-packed, yet practical. All the knowledge is shared while practicing the various techniques hands-on, giving the participant plenty of time to practice and get to know the materials.

We welcome between 3-8 attendees to our workshops. This is so that we can assist you fully and keep a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Book your workshop in time to make sure you secure your spot.

At the course you will learn:

• The full ceramic production from A-Z, from preparing a piece to glazing and firing

• Difference between earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain

• Why and how to wedge clay

• The stages of clay and what to know about each stage

• Four hand-building techniques (pinch, slab, coil, kurinuki)

• Decorating techniques

• Theory on more complex production techniques (wheel throwing, slipcasting)

• Practical tips on how to develop different pieces

Our focus is on offering a mindful approach to this craft.

 

Good to know:

As we explore the different sculpting techniques, you will likely create a ceramic piece you want to fire. You will be able to take your piece home after it has dried, fired, and glaze fired (approx. 3-4 weeks after the workshop).

Firing and glazing is included in the course price.

Recommended level:

This workshop is perfect for beginners, who have little to no experience with ceramics. This ceramic workshop can also be a very knowledge-packed experience for those who would like to refreshen their knowledge after many years away from the craft.

Receiving your piece:

Expect to receive your piece/pieces within 4 weeks from the day your workshop took place. Be aware of this if you want to give any of your creations to someone as a gift.
