In this classes, I’ll teach you all the steps to make a set of cups with black stoneware clay using a variety of technics from wheel to handbuilding. During this intensive workshop, you will make a set of 2 to 6 wheelthrown cups.

You’ll learn the different techniques of wheel throwing and handbuilding with black clay. I’ll guide you through the different steps to make handmade pottery pieces and it will be glazed for you after the class to make it foodsafe and waterproof. You can also book an additional glazing session here if you wish to glaze your piece in a specific color/texture. (Ps: Note that the glazing class should happen minimum one month after the black cups workshop so the pieces you have made have the time to dry and be fired once in order to be glazed) You will receive an email when your cups will be ready to pick up at the studio within one month after the workshop.)

Little reminder : Wear preferably comfortable clothes and which can be dirty. It is also easier to work with clay with short nails and no rings / bracelets / attached hair.
