What you'll do

At UDUMBARA you are submerged in a real pottery studio with an experienced potter. If this is your lifelong dream, then roll up your sleeves and take the wheel for a spin at a throwing taster workshop in Helsinki. Now is the perfect opportunity to experience it! We’ll start your taster workshop with a short demonstration covering the basics of wheel-based pottery. We have two pieces (500g ) of clay ready for you to use. With one piece you can try the wheel with Eva (@finnishdesigners.fi/portfolio/eva.spoof) she will make sure that everyone tries on the pottery wheel will be successful. The second piece is for you to try the wheel on your own. This will take about 20 min per person. It is fun just to learn and experience our wonderfully rich natural clay. You can take some cute pics to remember the occasion, and we will give you a small wild clay flowerpot to commemorate your experience. *Please keep in mind that the cost of finishing and shipping is not included. Wild clay pottery is "slow design" and it will take a few weeks before the pots are ready and it is unfortunately quite expensive to ship lottery abroad.
