Residential Mastercourses in a range of ceramic techniques and processes for beginners, experienced and professional ceramists.
Our programme gives the opportunity to learn in a mutually supportive environment with experienced teachers, working with a full range of clays and kilns - from raku, high temperature gas and electric to woodfiring kilns for ash and saltglaze.
For more details on each program please click on the program image below. Some details are still to be confirmed and will be available shortly. Places available are limited so it advisable to apply early.
What is a personal object?
What shape is an emotion?
What is the game?
I look forward to colleagues in my course who are inspired by these issues and have a desire to think and create together on this topic.
Mik azok a személyes tárgyak?
Milyen formájú egy érzelem?
Mi a játék?
Várom a kurzusomon azokat a kollégákat, akiket inspirálnak ezek a kérdések és van kedvük közösen gondolkodni és alkotni ebben a témakörben.
The major elements in the creation of porcelain slip cast objects. Participants will learn the process of design, creating the original model from plaster and making the moulds, slip casting, and to have one high fire porcelain kiln with some of the finished works in at the end of the course.
Sledging, or profiling, is a modeling technique with huge potential. Sledging describes the act of dragging a profile through wet plaster and is, essentially, extruding with plaster. Success lies in the simplicity of sledging, which relies on the preparation of templates and tools that allow you to form the plaster
Due to the Coronavirus situation we have been forced to postpone some of our courses.
We are currently re-scheduling the following courses. Dates will be available shortly.
On the course you will create an original model from plaster and making the moulds ready for slipcasting or press moulding. Bring your drawings and sketches and Gabi will guide you through the process of moulds - single piece, two part, multiple parts etc.
My approach is experimental and observational and together we shall work with techniques that enable you not just to observe the creation of work that is in the style of ‘Eddie Curtis’ but to inspire a way of working that helps you to create vessels, containers and/or sculptures with a singular identity of their own.
Participants will have the opportunity to make their own moulds with guidance and tuition from this master, learning techniques and processes that make the European porcelain tradition the pinnacle of the porcelain arts.
