The seminars

Our beginner's two-hour seminar will be focusing on practicing the techniques provided by our introductory video. Furthermore, we will learn the basics of completing a ceramic piece and learn our way around our pottery studio. The price is 25€ per person for the complete seminar which can have up to 4 participants.

After the seminar

Our main objective is freedom of expression and creativity. Once the student has grasped the basics of the wheel and has gotten a glimpse of the various corners of our studio then it is time to practice and learn. For that we will provide the main ingredients and tools as well as a nice calm environment.

The first steps of creation

In our studio you will be able to produce pieces either on the wheel or by using our handbuilding tables.

We can provide four potter's wheels which create minimum noise and have a detachable pedal for speed control. We also have lots of pottery and electrical tools that you can use. The price of renting our studio is 10€/per hour (with an appointment the day before).

Firing

Participants of our beginners seminar will be offered a free bisque firing for one of their pieces. Firing clay requires a special kiln which can usually reach temperatures of up to 1300℃. Once the clay is fired to temperatures above 800℃ it becomes ceramic.

The price per firing is 2€ per piece of up to 10cm³.

Glazing

In our studio we have plenty of glazes and all the necessary tools to finish a ceramic piece and even make it suitable for tableware use. We can also provide you with the necessary ingredients to paint your pieces. 

Glazing costs greatly vary but an average (dip glaze) is 2€ per 10cm³ piece. The exact amount will be calculated using a high accuracy weight scale once the pot is dipped.
