Product description

Thursday 24th of August from 5 PM to 9 PM

Brighten up your winter with you self made tea-light lanterns. To make it through the Nordic winter you need to add “Hygge” in your life.
"Hygge" means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight in a dark winter evening is “hygge" in essence.

Come along and learn the pottery basics in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. At UDUMBARA you are submerged in a real pottery studio and learn how to handle local wild clay. In lantern workshop You will learn coiling and slap techniques. Whether you are a beginner or have worked with clay before, this class is the perfect place to get creative and make new friends.

In UDUMBARA pottery we work with wild, natural clay from the small village of Kultela in Somero, Southwestern Finland. The material is sustainable and gives the products a wonderfully rich character. Lanterns are are glazed with clear glaze and when light up the iron rich Kultela clay will give a beautiful golden glow.

When you “hygge” with Kultela clay lanterns, you don't just get handmade sustainable pottery, you get a piece of Finland too….

Welcome to UDUMBARA:

General Class Information Please read this in detail before the purchase. Thank you.

All classes are for ages 18 and up, unless otherwise indicated.

Working at the studio with Kultela clay is truly slow design as the potteries big kiln is only fired 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 your lanterns will make it (trough drying and two 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.

Complete payment 95 € is done at registration (Clay, teaching, tools, finishing and bisque and glaze firing are included in tuition. We will serve tea, and light snack. The price 24 % VAT. included in class fee.) Materials Fee This fee covers up to 6 kg clay used, including clay, tools and the cost of firings.

Just to make sure this tea-light lanterns will bring joy and “hygge” , remember this with using living light:

Burning candles should never be left unattended and keep candle lanterns away from anything flammable. Lanterns should be placed where children and pets can’t reach them.m Extinguish candles with a candle snuffer rather than blowing them out, as hot wax can splatter.

Flameless candles are also a safe alternative to lit candles and produce a soft, glowing effect.
