nerikomi express class; canes : September

Regular price

nerikomi class, 2 days: mixed level class. This is a shorten class to make the cost more affordable. I took out of my usual program the period about coloring clay and cane making.

*all included: stains, clay, tools, protection gear, glaze  and firings.


You will learn: 

nerikomi techniques: all the basic patterns, collage, and make your own ceramic projects with colored clay. 


example of individual projects: 

beginner student: small dishes, tea cups, thumblers, small bowls...

intermediate student: mugs, vases, pots with feet...

advanced student: tea set with a teapot and 4 tea bowls, sculpture, large dishes...

(the levels are regarding hand building clay techniques, I expect that all are beginners in coloured clay designing)
