Shape Your Own Clay Object

My studio will be fully operational in 2020, but in the meantime I partner with two cozy spaces (Associazione Arcobaleno, Teatro Ygramul) in the center of Rome to host my Ceramic Workshops and Classes

The Airbnb Experience is designed for everyone, there is no need of previous experience in shaping clay. The experience will allow you to work with Coiling Technique, one of the oldest techniques in modeling clay.

During the workshop you will be introduced to the basics of the Coiling Technique. You will shape your own object and, at the end, it will be yours to take away.

First of all, we will do some design work, making a simple sketch to visualize the object that you want to create and to figure out what will be the size of it.

After that, we will cut a piece of clay and start working on it, we have to make sure there are no air bubbles in our clay block. From this block we will prepare the base and shape the coils. Then, we will  start to roll the coils over one another, gently modeling the object. Finally, we will give the final touch: smooth the outside and inside surface.

Duration is three hours

Location: San Saba, Rome

Workshop

“Ceramic Class” | Experience a continuous weekly program | 2 hours every session

The Evening Class is focused on the learning of the Coil Technique and the experimentation of some decorative techniques such as the use of ingobbi (colors clay based), engraving and texture. The lessons provides a gradual acquisition of manual skills; we will start from modeling simple shapes with a cylindrical base to achieving more and more complex shapes.

The class is open to everyone, no previous knowledge is needed, but at the same time, those who are already familiar with the working of clay will have the opportunity to learn about a new technique or to refine their skills. In fact, the lessons includes the participation of a limited number of people, allowing me to follow each of them carefully, respecting times and attitudes of each participant.

The class also includes an introduction to processing equipment, to the types of clay mixtures, to raw materials, to processing and production systems, to the types of colors and coatings, to fire systems.

The class will be held every Monday starting from October 7th 2019 and it will last two hours, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
