Handbuilding workshop with Robin from Studio Bloei

Date & Time: Saturday the 23rd of november, 14PM.

Location: Your Space Amsterdam, Herengracht 407, 1017 BP Amsterdam.

The advice is to come by public transport, parking coasts are very high in the centre of Amsterdam.

Duration: approximately 2 hours.

Take with you: an apron and a kitchen towel.

Language: Dutch and English 

What will you be learning?

This class is all about touching clay for the first time, or maybe the second or third time. It doesn’t really matter, because you will learn something new anyway! I will explain a lot about pottery; the process, clay and glazes and how to make something out of a ball of clay.

What will you be making?

We will be making a ceramic mug. Because this is a handbuilding workshop, we will not throw on the wheel. I will explain all of the little steps in the process of making the mug and will help you make and design your own mug. How cool is that!

The process in pottery is very long, so we can’t do everything. Because of that I will finish your mug in the studio and will glaze it with a glaze of your choice. When it’s finished, I will send it to you, so you can enjoy your own handmade mug at home.

We will use a speckled clay body and there will be 3 glazes to choose from.

For who is this workshop?

This workshop is for anyone interested in clay, it doesn’t really matter what your level is. However I have to say, if you are a more advanced potter, I don’t think I can learn you something new (I am just being honest here). The more advanced potters are, of course, also very welcome. Making something out of nothing is for everyone!

What is included in the workshop?

All the materials are included, like clay, tools and a glaze of your choice. There will be also drinks and some snacks at Your Space Amsterdam.

What do I need to bring?

Because we are working with mud basically, I wouldn’t recommend wearing your best dress!

You can bring an apron to protect your cloths and an old kitchen towel to clean your hands.

So what is included in this handbuilding workshop?

  • All materials such as clay , glazes, tools, snacks and drinks.

  • I will finish your mug in the studio. This means that I will fire it, glaze it (with a glaze of your choice) and fire it again.

  • Ship your handmade mug to your home.

Bring an apron to protect your cloths and an (old) kitchen towel to clean your hands.
