Here an impression of our first week of creative holidays in Heucourt- Croquoison, France..... What a week, what a joy. Looking forward to the next one but still thinking a lot about this one :)


Welcom in week 27/28 van 2023 - The second of many more to come - A holiday week with lots of ceramics, good food and fun!! -

This week is for the intermidiate & advanced thrower or handbuilder.

Also we have decided totally beginners are welcome to start there ceramic adventure :)

Throwing : Beginner - Let the edventure begin :) - Learn the basics and create some cool pots.

Intermediate - So you have likely followed a few throwing courses, you can centre a kilo and can pull up your clay than this week is for you :) This week we will go in depth of the basics and like the throwing days go by we will learn new technics and can practice a style, object and have fun learning. Or just make those all important throwing hours and let it get to a muscle memory in a nice and relax setting. Advanced - You want to practice a special technic, throw bigger with less clay, in need of a plan, etc. Suus & Ralph are here to guide you in all doable projects. After throwing we ofcourse are going to be trimming and finish your creations ready for some decorating and the biscuit (first fire). We also will talk about the basics of glazing....

Handbuilding : You are welcome as a beginner or with a bit of experience (in doubt how much, just ask us), for the just starting with clay persons - We are going to do some basic technics like pinching , coiling a little vase and work with slabs. Every week we have a special that we will show and explain. If you are familiar with handbuilding you can do projects on your own with guidance from us. We also have soooooo many great ideas and tools to get you inspired again when you are a bit in lack of inspiration.
