Ceramics – Raku (naked raku) and Obvara​

Ceramics course week in collaboration with Elly Tourney from Het klein Atelier. In this course week we work with fast (primitive) firing techniques for both beginners and advanced students. Elly has been providing ceramics courses and workshops in its own workshop for more than 15 years. Under her leadership, she knows how to inspire the most inexperienced student and how to get them to create beautiful objects. As with sculpture courses, this is also a fully catered course week based on full board, course and materials (7 nights, 7 x breakfast, 6 x lunch, 7 x dinner) and including tourist tax.
