Three weeks - Vases Workshops

Relax with Clay - Vases Workshops

These beautiful vases were hand built by Jessics Coates (@_jessica_coates_), a ceramicist working in Darmstadt, Germany. Together with Michel Müller she runs Studio MC.

The​​ workshop will be split over three sessions and you will leave having made a vase for your floristry needs. In the first session we will introduce you to the tools and materials required for the shape.

In the second session you will get the chance to decorate your vase, using sprig moulds and other forms of surface design. Then in the final session you will be able to apply colour and pattern to your piece.

All participants will receive plenty of one-to-one teaching and will be able to collect their glazed and fired vase within two weeks after the workshop date.
