Handbuilding 101 –
Come and get your hands dirty in the beautiful Wintti550 barn! This workshop of the basic slab technique will open up the wonderful world of ceramics to you. Suzanne will guide you through the in’s and out’s of handbuilding. You’ll knead, roll, shape and stamp the morning away, creating your own beautiful slab bowl. After a lunch break, we will return to our bowls to add colorful underglazes. You will walk away from the workshop with the satisfaction that you’ve created a bowl that’s also art to display proudly in your home.
Experience that satisfaction of making something with your hands and enjoy a playful morning being creative. We’ll keep it simple, so you can confidently leave Wintti550 ready to kickstart your own journey into the age-old craft of pottery, if you choose to take another NiiloVilla Studio Workshop.
Your pieces will be finished, glazed and fired by the NiiloVilla team, and you will be notified when they are ready to pick up (about 2-3 weeks after the workshop).
No experience? No worries. All levels are welcome (ages 16+), however the content has been designed with the complete beginner in mind.
Just bring yourself, wear clothes you don’t mind getting grubby and come with an open, and inspired mind.
