Welcome to join our wild clay FLOWER POT — intensive workshop at UDUMBARA studio.
We will have a small group for a relaxed workshop with individual attention. Throwing on the potter's wheel is challenging but fun and excellent grounding, mindful practice to find your center. This activity demands focus and can open up the mind and relieve you of outside worries.
This class is suitable for all levels. The workshop starts at 4 PM and ends at 6.45 for cleanup.
Osaamme myös suomea, tervetuloa. Vi talar också svenska, välkommen.
Coping With COVID-19: Prudence: Let us exercise extra caution and use a surgical mask as a precautionary measure, and if the weather permits, we will keep the workshop outside in the front of the studio. We will have only six students per workshop, and because of the limited capacity, we need to maintain full attendance in all classes. Please ensure you have read and understood these Terms and Conditions before booking your course. By booking or attending a workshop, you are deemed to have read, understood, and accepted them.
Tuition is 75 €; The fee includes all materials up to 6 kg Kultela clay, guidance + flowerpot firing two vessels + 24 % VAT. Each adult and child (10+) attending needs to be enrolled separately and pay the class fee.
At UDUMBARA, you are submerged in a real pottery atelier with an experienced potter (Eva Spoof). Everyone takes a turn with Eva, and everyone has their wheel to work on. Class size is limited and will is filled on a first-come,first-served basis.
Like piano playing, the pottery wheel takes time and patience to master, and beginners may 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.
BRING YOU OWN apron and FACE mask, and please wear clothes and shoes you're ok with getting dirty. 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.
Working at the studio with local 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.
