"Make Your Own Woman"by Karina Smagulova
3 days of hand building Masterclass with the one and only Karina Smagulova
We are very excited to welcome Karina to the studio this summer. She is coming from London to teach us her master skills of hand building and how to create our own Woman Vessel.
During these three days of hand building, you will learn how to start the preparation of a vessel, experiment with clay, shape and texture and how to gradually come to your own piece with different hand building techniques combined. (Pinching, coils and slabs) On the last day you will also learn how to decorate your vessel with slips and texture. You can make your own woman shape or any other shape you have in mind. This is the perfect workshop if you want to learn how to make larger vessels and enhance your hand building skills.
You will have the choice out of different grogged clays to work with. (Crank, White and Black stoneware clay)
The courses are in small groups with attention to personal guidance.
Limited spaces available!
