This course is for anyone who wants to test their skills with clay and learn the basics of hand-building techniques. The focus is on creating ceramic objects, but also on immersing oneself in a creative atmosphere, combined with fun and being together.
- 1.5 hour workshops in our ceramic studio in Furi.
- 35CHF for children, min. age 6 years.
- Groups up from 2 to max. 6 participants. For a group booking of 6 Kids, one is free.
- The price includes 2kg of clay per kid, use of tools and materials, subsequent firing and glazing of one piece per person, as well as professional and friendly supervision.
The workshop consists of a short introduction to the studio, the materials and the whole ceramic process. This is followed by a short demonstration of the various hand-building techniques by the ceramist and an inspiration tour of the studio. While you let your creativity run free, the ceramist is always available for questions or suggestions. You will also have the opportunity to paint your pieces with our available colours. At the end of the course we will discuss the firing process. This means that you tell our ceramist with which glaze from our standard range she may glaze and fire the pieces.
Any additional costs: If you have created several pieces and would like to have more than one fired, we will charge you 15CHF for each additional piece. If you are unable to collect the pottery in person and we send it by post with the additional insurance "FRAGILE", you will be charged shipping costs of 15CHF-30CH. This depends on the weight of the pieces created. Whether shipping is possible depends on the nature of the ceramics. Furthermore, Zermatt Ceramics does not accept any liability for possible delivery of damaged goods by the postal service, despite additional insurance "FRAGILE".
This course is normally offered from Monday to Friday. Weekend sessions are also available on request. Please do not hesitate to contact our ceramist directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 079 952 48 58 with any questions or to make a booking.
We look forward to your questions and a creative time together in our beautiful studio in Furi.
