porcelain slipcasting course


always wanted to learn how to make your own porcelain cup/plate/bowl/vase ?!
then join us for a 6 weeks course in which you’ll learn all the skills!
in this course you will learn the complete process of the production of a porcelain object.

the course consists of six lessons of aprox. 3 hrs each, starting with a brief introduction about ceramics and the basic theory of slip casting.
we will then discuss your idea and turn it into a model, from which you will make a (multiple piece) mould. after your mould has dried, it’s ready to be casted!
we will experiment using different colours of porcelain, design and finishing techniques.
you will glaze your pieces yourself and there is also a brief introduction on how to load and use the kiln.
you will be guided step by step through each process. by the end of the course you will have a number of casted items to take home with you!

(in the future it will be possible to return to studio k. on scheduled evenings to experiment some more with the mould you made or to start a new project.
in this way you can build your own collection and use the skills you learned in this course to work on your own under guidance of studio k.)
