The weel workshop requires independent calmness, and to be challenged to take time to learn a skill, and to think about your values and sustainability as a maker.”

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. Please wear loose clothes and shoes you're ok with getting dirty. The Iron rich wild clay will leave stains on light-colored garments. If you have long hair, plan on having a way to secure it. Long nails can cause accidental gouges in the piece you're working on.

We have seven pottery wheels at our studio. On one wheel you will take turns with Eva, she will make sure that everyone tries on the pottery wheel will be successful. On the other wheel´s you can test your skills on your own in turn, it is fun and also important to watch each other's attempts on the wheel. ​

Full payment required on booking your session. You can check the available times at https://udumbara.youcanbook.me or send a mail to eva.spoof@gmail.com.

At UDUMBARA we make sustainable ceramics and we work with wild, local clay from the small village of Kultela in Somero, Southwestern Finland. The material gives the products a wonderfully rich character. Wild clay flowerpots are not glazed, and that's why they 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 a slow design as the pottery's big kiln is only fired a few times per season, and it takes 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 (through 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. We will be happy to send the ready-to-make products to your home; this will be charged extra.

If you find are unable to attend your booking, and it’s more than seven days in advance, we can offer a transfer to another date or a refund. Refunds are not available if cancellations are made within seven days of an agreed time. One-half of the course fee will be held (for any reason sickness etc.). No refunds within three days of the workshop date. No refunds will be given once a workshop has happened. A full refund will be given if your workshop is canceled d by The Udumbara Studio for any reason. Udumbara will not be responsible for any unclaimed pottery after two months of the date of when they are ready. ​

​ Please keep in mind; Like piano playing, it looks easy. It takes a long time and patience to master it, but it is fun! You and Welcome to UDUMBARA!
