You will work with an electric wheel

  • First you will learn to knead the clay, center the clay, and create the pieces: cylinders, bowls and plates
  • Then you will learn to trim your pieces and put handles, feet, etc.
  • The last day of the course will be dedicated to decorating with different techniques: brush, sponge, sgraffito, masking, etc.
  • A few days after the workshop, we will glaze and fire your pieces and we will notify you to come and pick them up. If you do not live in Barcelona, we will wrap and ship them to you. (Please consider this as an additional cost dependent upon your home location.)
