Every month we organize various workshops in our studio. Most of them don't require any previous experience.
The groups are small (5 people) and run for 2-3 hours; so you get plenty of individual attention and guidance from our experienced ceramic artist, Bojana Ristevski Mlaker.
Each workshop includes all required materials (clay, tools, glaze, kiln firing). Finished pieces can be picked up at the studio 7-10 days after the workshop.
All pieces are fired at 1250° and are dishwasher safe.
We will make beautiful and practical cups for coffe or tea. Each participant will make two cups.
Using brown clay we will be building with slabs and printing various textures on the cups surface. Special attention will be paid to the design of the handle, its proportion to the rest of the cup and its unique design.
