In this Ceramics Workshop you will learn how to build pieces using the four hand-forming techniques: Slab, Pinch Pot, Coil and Carved Solid Block. As well as a theoretical introduction to the types of pastes and the process of transforming clay into ceramics, we will cover some decoration techniques on raw clay, using engobes and textures, and finally, we will learn how to glaze the pieces. The shape of the pieces is directly linked to the type of techniques we'll be covering and means that at the end* you'll take four (or more) ready-to-use utilitarian pieces with you.

No previous knowledge is required.
Minimum age for participation: 16 years / Accompanied by an adult (two entries): 14 years
