Trial-Workshop 'pottery for beginners'

If you'd like to try some pottery on the wheel, but you don't have the time to follow a 14-lesson course, this may be what you're looking for! A one-time pottery workshop that has everything in it from 'wedging'and 'centering' to the actual throwing on the wheel. After an introduction and the necessary instructions, we all trow a few cups or bowls. The best ones we save and we decorate them with coloured slib. After a few days of drying, we glaze and fire the cups and after about two weeks they are ready to be picked up.

Level: This workshop is for absolute beginners.

Time : workshops take place on Saturdaynights 19:30-22:00, including welcome with tea and coffee.

Prize: the workshop costs €50,- per person, including materials, glazing, firing and coffe/tea. There is a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 9 participants

Workshop will take place on:

  • Saturday 24 March 19:30-22:00
  • Saturday 14 April 19:30-22:00
