What you'll do
welcome to the workshop ! we are here to create with the material from which our food grows and holds the food that we eat. we will go over the philosophy of WABI SABI - the art of imperfection and how function follows form and vice versa. the TECHNIQUES that we will cover are pinch pots & coiling and slab & handbuilding. we will create TEXTURES through impressions, carving or stamps. first we will start with CLAY PREP through wedging to soften clay and slamming to align clay particles. then we can start CREATING your forms. after you have made your forms, the pieces will dry for a week and then will be fired in a KILN which will make the pieces glaze ready. you will choose from our vast selection of glaze colours and if you are still here in the city after 7 days, you may glaze your own pieces. if not, I will glaze your pieces and ship them to you as they will be fired a second time to 2200 degrees C. your pieces will arrive glazed and ready to hold and serve your meal in. cheers! grace
I would love to host you in my ceramics studio located in an artist's building in Strathcona, the artist hub of Vancouver. I have been creating ceramics for 10 years here in the studio and in this neighbourhood but have travelled all over the world with my work for shows and exhibits. Ask me about where all the best places to eat and to shop are here in Vancouver and I will guide you to many local eateries and handmade focussed shops.

Where you'll be
this workshop is held in my brand new blush studio upstairs where the sunlight streams in from our front windows and 2 skylights above. the space is also a green oasis of sorts as we have an obsession with hanging plants. we have made the studio a bright, calm space for creating to our hearts delight.
