Experiences are what make us happy. Gift your Friends or Family with a unique; Art of Pottery and learning to let go - an intensive pottery wheel flowerpot workshop. (Osaamme myös suomea, tervetuloa. Vi talar också Svenska, välkommen).
Clay Dates are the perfect way to give pottery a try. They also make a fun outing with friends. Come along for this 2-hour pottery workshop and have fun learning the pottery basics in a relaxed atmosphere. Throwing on the potter’s wheel is challenging but fun and excellent practice to find your center. This activity demands focus and can open up the mind and relieve you of outside worries.
At UDUMBARA studio, you are submerged in a real pottery studio with an experienced professional ceramist Eva Spoof (https://www.finnishdesigners.fi/portfolio/eva.spoof).
Everyone will have their pottery wheel to try on, and Eva will guide in turns. Like piano playing, it looks like fun and looks easy. It takes a long time and patience o learn, but it is fun. We make flowerpots, as wild clay is ideally suited for it. The first pottery experiments are usually a bit wonky but look cute when you plant something on them.
The fee includes all materials up to 6 kg Kultela clay per person, guidance, trimming, and finishing work + flowerpot firing two vessels + 24 % VAT. Each adult and child (10+) attending needs to be enrolled separately and pay the class fee.
You can check the available time at https://udumbara.youcanbook.me or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Full payment is required on booking your session.
UDUMBARA studio (est. 1994) is Earth-friendly pottery; we use wild, red clay from the small village of Kultela in Somero, Southwestern Finland. The material gives the products a wonderfully rich earthy character.
General Class Information Please read this in detail before the purchase. Thank you. Working at the studio with Kultela clay is “slow design,” and big pottery kiln is only fired a few times per season. It also takes much more time and patient when working with wild clay. We will inform you when flowerpots are ready, so remember to be patient.

We will not give any refunds once a workshop has happened. You will be given if your workshop is canceled d by The Udumbara Studio & Gallery for any reason.
Please keep in mind;
The pottery wheel takes time and patience to master, and some 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. The studio will provide an apron to help protect your legs from splatter, but please wear clothes and shoes 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. *If you have long hair, plan on having a way to secure it. We will not be responsible for any unclaimed pottery after one month of the date of when they are ready, and you have been informed.
Thank You, and Welcome to UDUMBARA!
