Knowledge is worth little if not shared. We only came so far in our project by the generosity of many people that shared their knowledge and experience with us. We know that each one of us has the potential to learn and teach, and that this information transfer is essential to a healthy society. And now, after years of accumulation, we are ready and want to share it with others
In our atelier we offer divers workshops where you can learn about ceramics and clay techniques, where you can get inspiration and answers to your questions.
Our workshops are offered from 3-4 hours to weekend activities, or as a series that take place a few weeks in a row.
