How are we going to work:

You will work with an electric wheel

 

  • First you will learn to knead the clay, center the clay, and create the pieces: cylinders, bowls and plates
  • Then you will learn to trim your pieces and put handles, feet, etc.
  • The last day of the course will be dedicated to decorating them with different techniques: brush, sponge, sgraffito, masking, etc.
  • A few days after the workshop, we will glaze and fire your pieces and we will give you a note to come and pick them up. If you don’t live in Barcelona, we will wrap and ship them to you. Please consider this as an additional cost dependent upon your home location.

Note that:

  • No previous experience is necessary;
  • The classes are comprised of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 people to ensure a personalized service;
  • We provide all the materials and tools that your creative process may need.
