Pottery & glacing - advanced

Pottery & glacing - advanced

In this workshop, we take the rotation to the next level and also take the opportunity to test different types of glazes and glaze yourself. When you turn, you usually need to train lots of times before you get to something that you are really happy with. There is access to two turntables that you can practice your technique with. You also get the opportunity to try other techniques such as rolling, modeling and thumbing the clay. In this workshop you have plenty of time to work yourself, but of course you get help when you need it. Small exclusive group of four people. We will also go through which glazes are suitable for different clays and how to get a desired and beautiful result. Barbro is a bit of a master when it comes to glazes and you will definitely be able to create several works that you are happy with. The works you create will be burned and glazed in the desired color scheme and you can pick it up after 2-3 weeks or have it sent to you for a shipping fee. You can enjoy a good homemade lunch, coffee and freshly baked coffee bread.

Personligt möte med gott att äta, trevligt prat, mysig trädgård och inte minst roligt, intensivt drejande med instruktioner och glada tillrop från Barbro!!



Det var som att komma till en kreativ oas. Jag släppte allt och kunde bara fokusera på att njuta o suga in allt kring drejandes. Jag har haft en helt fantastisk dag.

I helgen var vi på kurs hos Barbro som med öppna armar välkomnade oss in i hennes hem. Barbro bjöd på en härlig dag där hon väldigt pedagogiskt lärde ut och inspirerade oss alla trotts våra olika förkunskaper! Vi fick prova på olika tekniker och själva komma med idéer på vad vi ville skapa. Utöver detta bjöds det även på fantastisk mat och fika (även för mig med matallergier)! Vi kommer garanterat komma tillbaka och kan varmt rekommendera alla att åka dit!



Barbro är en jätteduktig lärare som stöttar en till att utvecklas. Roligt att få prova både drejning och andra tekniker med lera. Förutom kursen så är miljön fantastisk. Under dagen är man i Barbros fina hus med trädgård och äter mycket god hemlagad mat. En härlig upplevelse! Jag har varit på kurs hos Barbro flera gånger och alltid varit jättenöjd. Kommer garanterat att komma tillbaka!
