Summer course
Four days of trowing, all levels are welcome!

What are you learning?

All levels are welcome in these summer throwing weeks. As beginners you will learn how to wedge, center and make a bowl and cups and trim them. If you have already followed a beginners course with us, it is possible to do the program of the follow-up course in 4 days. But you don't have to, you can also organize these days yourself with the help of the teacher.

 

Decoration and glazes

During these throwing weeks we will make use of decorating with engobe (colored slib/clay). We will discuss different techniques such as: sgraffito, template technique, intarsia, spatter, stamping and color gradient. You can choose which techniques you want to use and even combine them. 

 

After the ceramics are made, they have to dry for 1 to 2 weeks before they go into the kiln for the first time. Normally we glaze at the end of the course, but because the lessons are so close together, the teachers will glaze the work later. All ceramics are given a nice glossy transparent glaze, which makes the decorations stand out nicely.

The studio is located in UNIT 13 of the Labs55 building at Lulofstraat 55 in The Hague.
