Try pottery for the first time or take your practise to the next level with a one-on-one workshop that is catered to your needs. Or grab a friend and carve your own tumblers in a group workshop (max. 6 participants) that will leave you feeling zen and creative!
WHAT TO EXPECT
For one-one-one wheel throwing workshops:
Although we are working with clay and tools, I strongly believe that the most important medium we work with is our body. A lot of my tips and guidance will focus on body-awareness. Believe it or not, even the toes of your left foot play a role in determining the result of a pot! Hips, core, shoulders, triceps; understanding and focussing on how your body works together with the laws of physics of a moving wheel, will make your life so much easier!
These workshops focus mainly on technique, shape, and contemporary design in ceramics. For more in-depth decorating and glazing courses, and for more traditional shapes, colours, or sculptural work, I can point you into the direction of some skilled artists and community studio’s in Vancouver, BC.
DATES & TIMES
Select the date and time in the booking menu of your workshop of choice. Make sure to select the right date before check-out!
Please note that during the summer months, only a handful of one-on-one workshops openings are available. If you don't see a date that suits your calendar, please contact me to see if I have other options available.
When choosing the 3-day workshop “THE PROCESS”:
Be mindful that the trimming session will be on the second day after your throwing session. Ie: throwing on Monday, trimming on Wednesday.
The glazing session is determined after your trimming session to suit your schedule and my firing schedule.
WHAT TO BRING
Clay and tools are available for use in the studio and free of charge. Please bring a towel and wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, or an apron. And a little reminder for the wheel throwing workshops; short fingernails, long hair that’s tied up, and removing your jewelry, makes throwing so much easier!
The workshops take place in my East Vancouver studio. There is ample parking in the alley near the back entrance. I will provide you with more details after your workshop is confirmed.
No cancellations. In case you need to reschedule, a 48-hour notice in writing is required. Workshops can only be rescheduled once and a CAD 10.00 fee will be applied for rebooking.
