(Osaamme myös suomea, tervetuloa. Vi talar också Svenska, välkommen).
Welcome to UDUMBARA studio and learn pottery basics in a relaxed atmosphere guided by professional ceramic artists (Eva Spoof).
Eva will prepare you plenty of clay to practice pottery wheel throwing. We will make flowerpots. The first pottery experiments are usually a bit wonky but look cute when you plant something on them.
This tutorial is for two hours, a private guided workshop for one person. The fee includes: All materials and preparation ( up to 6 kg). Tuition. Finishing, trimming, and firing off four flowerpots.
Additional participants for the private workshop are welcome to purchase their participation from the webshop ( please, two days in advance so I have time to prepare everything).
You can check the available times at https://udumbara.youcanbook.me (copy-paste the link). Full payment is required before booking.
If you have received a gift card, please use your voucher code for the payment.
When you make your flowerpots in Kultela clay, you don't just get handmade pottery; you also get a piece of Finland.
General Class Information Please read this in detail before the purchase. Thank you.
Working at the studio with Kultela clay is slow design, and pottery's big kiln is only fired a few times per season. It takes time and patience when working with wild clay. It is unpredictable, so we can't guarantee that all your works will make it (through drying firing), but we will do our best and take it very slowly to help the progress.
We will inform you with an email when they are ready, so please be patient.
Udumbara will not be responsible for any unclaimed pottery after two months from when they are ready. We will be happy to send the ready-made products to your home; this will be charged extra.
If you find you are unable to attend your booking, and it's more than seven days in advance, we can offer a transfer to another date, 40 € handling fee for transferring the date one week to the date.
Do not come to the class if you are sick with a fever or cough — no matter whether you were officially tested and diagnosed with COVID-19. You can pass on your space to a friend.
There is no rescheduling or refund within two days of the workshop date (unless there is a doctor's sick leave certificate).
We will give no refunds once a workshop has happened.
We will provide a full refund if Udumbara Studio cancels your workshop for any reason.
Please keep in mind; The pottery wheel takes time and patience to master, and many beginners become frustrated early on.
The pottery wheel and ceramics studio, in general, can be a dirty, messy place. No matter what precautions you take, you will end up with clay on your clothes and shoes at some point.
We will provide an apron to help protect your legs from splatter, but please wear clothes you're ok with getting dirty. Wild clay has lots of iron, and it can stain light fabrics. It is best to wear old loose-fitting pants.
Long nails can cause accidental gouges in the piece you're working on. Nail polish will wear off almost immediately when working with most clays. If you have long hair, plan on having a way to secure it.
Thank You, and Welcome to UDUMBARA.
