Time for touching clay again!

The following Ceramic Workshops will take place this November and December:

 

1. FRAGRANCE AND OTHER LAMPS

  • For creating a nice and warm atmosphere with a special candle lighting and filling the room with beautiful fragrances.

24-11-2019 Sunday,   10:00-17:00 with break for lunch which I will provide.
30-11-2019 Saturday, 10:00-13:00 painting our pieces before they get fired and glazed.

There are different shapes and types of fragrance and other lamps that we will design and build by using templates and following step by step demonstrations. An entire Sunday will give us enough time for more than one project. 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.


2. COLOURFUL 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.

1-12-2019 Sunday,   10:00-17:00 with break for lunch which I will provide.
7-12-2019 Saturday, 10:00-13:00 painting our pieces 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.

3. PLANT POTS WITH VARIOUS STAMP ORNAMENTATIONS

  • For your garden, terrace and indoor spaces.

8-12-2019 Sunday, 10:00-17:00 with break for lunch which I will provide.

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.

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


For all three workshops:

  • All the necessary materials (clay, engobe, glaze, stamps…) as well as the firing and lunch are provided. For the Plant Pot Workshop you can also bring supplementary stamps or things you want to use as stamps.
  • No previous knowledge in pottery is necessary.
  • 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.

I’m looking forward to seeing YOU there!
