Ceramic Workshops in November and December!

 

Ελληνικά

Two new Ceramic Workshops will take place in my atelier in Modi in November and December. Beginners as well as advanced learners are welcome.

 

The first one is devoted to…

RELIEF

In this workshop we transform an idea or an image that we like into a three-dimensional picture. It could be a portrait, a landscape, a plant or animal, a mandala or just anything that you can imagine. There are no limits!
Here you find pictures of some examples.

 

25/11/2018 Sunday,     10:00-17:00     with a break for lunch which I will provide.
15/12/2018 Saturday,  10:00-13:00     painting and finishing the relief.

 

In the second Workshop we build…

MOBILES

… or any kind of art decor you can hang from the ceiling, on a wall, in a tree or on your balcony.

On the first day we build decorative pieces of different shapes and sizes out of clay and after the drying and firing process we meet again on a morning to decorate the pieces with acrylic paints and assemble them with strings to create a mobile.

We can also combine them with pieces of different materials such as wooden sticks, beads, pendants, amulets or whatever you find suitable.

Here are some examples.

  2/12/2018 Sunday,  10:00-17:00    with a break for lunch which I will provide.
16/12/2018 Sunday,  10:00-13:00    painting and putting together the mobile.

 


At the end of each workshop you will have the pleasure of taking home a finished, original and personal piece of work. Or more than one …

A previous knowledge in ceramics is not necessary.

For both workshops:

  • All the necessary materials (clay, acrylic paints, strings in different colours) as well as the firing and lunch are provided. For the Mobile Workshop you can also bring supplementary pieces of wooden sticks, beads, yarn, string etc.
  • My atelier in Modi is about 20 minutes drive from Chania. If you don’t have a car, there is a bus from Chania to Gerani from where I can also pick you up.
  • For any questions or registration call me under: 697 422 11 51 or write an email to schnyder.barbara@gmail.com.

 

The finished pieces…

Finally I can present our finished pieces from the last three workshops in February and March 2018!

Ever touched clay?

Ελληνικά

No? Maybe it’s your time. There are three more Ceramic Workshops coming up at the end of February, beginning of March 2018 – each one a chance to make a new experience!

All three workshops will take place in my atelier in Modi and are suitable for beginners and advanced learners. Each workshop has a different subject and a slightly different approach/technique.

So let’s see what they are:

1. Multiuse jars with lids…

…for organizing small things with a personal touch. A jar to put your jewellery, a jar to put cookies, chocolates or to present nuts or olives on a table.

25/2/2018 Sunday, 10:00-17:00 with break for lunch which I will provide.
3/3/2018 Saturday, 10:00-13:00 painting our pieces with engobe before they get fired and glazed.

There are many possibilities of different shapes and colours to design your own unique jar. I will show and explain step by step an easy way for beginners and also more advanced ways. On Sunday we build and form the jars and the lids and on the following Saturday we give our pieces a colourful coating with engobes which have to be put on before the first firing. After the firing I will glaze them with shiny or matt transparent glaze, whatever you decided for each of your pieces, and then fire them a second time.

Get an idea from the photo gallery here.

 

2. Beautiful decorated plant pots…

…for your garden, terrace and indoor spaces.

Before we put the parts (bottom, sides, feet etc.) together we make decorative imprints with stamps or whatever can be used as stamps such as flowers, leaves, textiles, buttons, pen lids, just anything you can think of.

These pots will stay in the terracotta colour of the fired clay and for a more contrasty effect I will treat them after the first firing either with a white or a dark colour (as you prefer) before firing them the second time with transparent glaze on the inside if you wish.

 

 

4/3/2018 Sunday, 10:00-17:00 with break for lunch which I will provide.

Here you find a variety of plant pots that we made in past workshops.

 

3. Sculpting a human figure

This workshop is devoted to sculpting. After a short study of proportions of the human body and some examples of different kinds of sculptures we shape and model our own figure. This is quite an open field from very realistic to completely abstract….
My intention is to help everyone finding an idea, a pose and a way to sculpt a figure that suits his/her abilities and tastes and to support putting it into practice.

The finished sculptures will be dried and fired and will get that typical terracotta colour of the fired clay.

11/3/2018 Sunday, 10:00-17:00 with break for lunch which I will provide.

 


For all three workshops:

  • All the necessary materials (clay, coatings and glazes) as well as the firing and lunch are provided.
  • For any questions or registration call me under: 697 422 11 51 or write an email to schnyder.barbara@gmail.com.
  • My atelier in Modi is about 20 minutes drive from Chania. If you don’t have a car, there is a bus from Chania to Gerani from where I can also pick you up.

So maybe it is your time…..
