Service Description

Prices for firing costs will be calculated individually based on the amount of work created (18€/kg for both firings). ------- What to expect? This weekend course is all about Japanese tea bowl ceramics. You will learn how to create a tea bowl inspired by Japanese traditions using common handbuilding techniques in clay such as kurinuki, learning about the zen philosophy and looking at local sources of inspiration. The course is a good mix of theory on Japanese ceramics and the practical part, including demonstrations, guidance and self explorational time for personal creations, in which you can apply ceramic techniques. We draw inspiration from traditional regional styles such as Echizen or Seto as well as modern Japanese ceramics and approaches such as WabiSabi. Who is it for? This course is aimed at people with and without previous ceramic experience. Based on the group the class will be held in english and/or german. Firing the created ceramics? The ceramics are fired by the course leader, Anke Buchmann after the first weekend workshop. A few weeks later we meet again for the second part of the workshop: the glazing. This is the time where you can add colour and decoration to your tea bowls. The ceramic pieces will then be fired again up to 1220*C. After the second firing you will be informed and invited to picke up your creations. Scheduled Sessions: The workshop is split into 2 parts. Part 1: Sat / Sun 11am - 4pm (1h lunch break) - creating and fine tuning Part 2: Sat 11am - 1pm - glazing session What others say about this workshop: "Thank you for this fantastic workshop. It was very inspiring, informative and fun. One of the best ceramic workshops I had taken so far." (Julia S.) "I very much enjoyed the combination of theory and practical exploration. I keep talking to my friends and family about it. It is still working in me and the great learnings and memories keep coming back to me, inspiring me to keep creating." (Jana R.) "I loved this particular method so much that I kept using and applying it for other pieces as well. I got really hooked. I loved the calm and friendly energy and the atmosphere and aesthetics of the studio. It was a pleasure creating within this environment."
