Come along and have fun learning the pottery basics in a relaxed atmosphere. Throwing on the potter's wheel as therapeutic and relaxing. This thoughtful, meditative activity can open up the mind and relieve you of outside worries. At UDUMBARA you are submerged in a real pottery studio with an experienced potter (Eva Spoof). Learn the art of wild clay with an experienced ceramic artist in a relaxed atmosphere in a well-equipped sustainable pottery studio. Adults and children (accompanied by an adult) welcome to Eva's private workshops.
Note: making other than flowerpots, we require a minimum of two separate sessions if you want to keep the pieces you’ve made. The first lesson, two hours long, is dedicated to learning to prepare the clay and throwing the pots; the second lesson, one hour, is for trimming the thrown pots. These pots will also be glazed and fired twice.
You can check the available times at https://udumbara.youcanbook.me or send a mail to email@example.com.
At UDUMBARA we make sustainable ceramics We use Eco-energy, and we work with wild, local natural clay from the small village of Kultela in Somero, Southwestern Finland. The material gives the products a wonderfully rich character. If you make pieces you absolutely love, we will be happy to fire it, with extra cost 5 € or flowerpot (one firing), 10 € glazed (two firings and glazing).
Wild clay flowerpots are not glazed, and that's why are ideally suited for a plant's physiological needs. Part of their beauty is their tendency to beautify with age as they weather and absorb mineral salts from the soil.
When you make your planters in Kultela clay, you don't just get handmade pottery; you get a piece of Finland too.
General Class Information Please read this in detail before the purchase. Thank you.
Working at the studio with Kultela clay is truly slow design as the potteries big kiln is only fired a few times per season, and it takes much more time and patient when working with wild clay. Wild clay is unpredictable, so we can't guarantee that all your works will make it (trough drying firing) but we will do our best and take it very slowly to help the progress. We will inform you when they are ready, so remember to be patient. Udumbara will not be responsible for any unclaimed pottery after two months of the date of when they are ready. We will be happy to send the ready make products to your home; this will be charged extra.
