Teacher Evan Powell


Handbuilding and ceramic decoration workshop: 16-hours divided into 4 sessions of 4 hours each.


  • The handbuilding and ceramic decoration workshop is very useful as a first contact with the clay and its vast possibilities. Once completed, you can practice the acquired skills independently, or continue moving towards more complex projects in our ongoing courses.
  • Mastering the hand-building and ceramic decoration techniques as well as acknowledge the optimal times and conditions to apply each, are key elements to conceiving our projects.

The handbuilding and ceramic decoration workshop will stimulate your imagination and will allow your creative self to florish. We will stick to an easy going programme, personalized and adapted to your aims as well as to all leves and skils.

We are very proud of our students creations. Visit our Instagram and Facebook pages to see what they’re up to!
