20 hours Workshop

Handbuilding Summer School

Handbuilding and ceramic decoration workshop: 20-hours divided into 5 sessions of 4 hours each


  • The course on handbuilding and ceramic decoration techniques in ceramics is very useful for delving deeper into your pottery practice;
  • We will work with different clay bodies for a better understanding of the qualities and characteristics of each: low temperature, high temperature, and porcelain;
  • The knowledge about the ways of building and decorating, as well as about the optimal timings and conditions for applying them, is a key element when choosing and designing our projects

The course on handbuilding and ceramic decoration techniques will stimulate your imagination and allow your creative self to flourish. We will follow a simple, personalized program adapted to your goals, as well as to all levels and skills.

In the handbuilding course, you will have the opportunity to create pieces that you can later decorate with surprising effects in our raku course. Alternatively, you can work on that unique design project you’ve been imagining and drawing inspiration from, to later use it as a prototype and create a mold in our plaster mold-making course.
