Our Classes, Workshops and Events
Introduction Class Wheel Throwing
Want a taste of what its like to be a ceramicist? Our introduction class lasts about 3 hours. Here we teach you the basics of pottery on the wheel and you can of course try it yourself. With two teachers we are always available with advice and support to make the most of your pottery class.
You can choose a glaze color for your pieces and we will finish them for you afterwards. You can then pick them up within 4-5 weeks or we send them by mail (plus shipping).
All pieces are food safe. Usually you will make 2-5 pieces.
The introduction class costs 180€ per person.
Two Days Wheel Throwing Workshop
Our two days workshop includes a total of 6.5 hours over 2 days + one optional evening for glazing. On the first day you will learn how to throw on the wheel and produce pieces and work independently as well as finish the produced goods.
On the second day you can deepen your learned skills and produce more pieces.
Your pieces will dry for about 1-2 weeks. On an additional evening you are welcome to come and glaze your pieces yourself.
Alternatively, we offer to glaze your pieces for you and they can be picked up within 4-5 weeks or I will send them by mail (plus shipping costs).
The workshop costs 280€ per person.

Our Ceramic Event is a private happening for closed groups of 6 or more people - the perfect event for bachelorette parties, corporate events or a leisurely day with the family.
The Ceramic Event lasts about 2.5 hours. Here we focus on the handbuilding technique at the table. You will make bowls, plates, candlesticks, soap dishes and much more. Usually our students produce about 2-5 pieces each. We will finish your pieces with your desired glaze and you can pick them up within 4-5 weeks or we send them by mail (plus shipping costs).
The ceramic event costs 100€ per person. Bookable for private groups of 6-15 persons.

There are still too many vouchers in circulation and we cannot guarantee a place for everyone, so we have decided to stop selling vouchers.
We recommend to get out the good old crafting scissors again and make your own voucher for the beloved person. :)
Our studio is often visited by our little dog Kiwi. If you are afraid of dogs, please let us know in advance so that we can make the class as pleasant as possible for everyone.
Please wear appropriate clothing as chances are you might get some clay on them.
Don't worry, the will come out in the washing machine.
Short fingernails make learning much easier..
