2021 Ceramics Summer Programme

Take your ceramics experience to a new level this summer!

 

2021 Ceramics Summer Programme is designed to empower you as a ceramic artist, to enrich your vision and elevate your skills to the next level.

 

Programme extends for 6 weeks

 

Create at your own pace while enjoying the freedom of 24/7 studio access.
From Monday to Friday you will meet daily with one of your 3 tutors whom will offer you support and direction by helping you to adapt ceramic processes to your skills level. You can make the most from their expertise and experience, helping you to widen and achieve your creative ambitions.

 

Submerged in an artistic and inspirational environment, sharing space and ideas with artists from all over the world, you will develop your projects from the beginning to the end, practising with functional pottery, conceptual installations or experimental sculpture using traditional and contemporary shapes. In a small group (taking into account regulated hygiene and safety measures) of intensive work sessions everyday, you will give your creativity a boost, building confidence and skills along with your ceramic creations. Artists of all levels of experience are welcomed.
By making ceramics your everyday routine you will experience living as a full time artist and you will have a glimpse of what it takes to run a ceramics studio.

 

2-hour Classes every week – Achieve mastery in making, decorating and firing techniques.
The programme includes a 2-hour class every week focused on evolving your skills in wheel throwing, hand building, and surface design. Lessons may include using slip, underglaze and terra sigillata for different decoration and finishing techniques.

 

Raku Firing
You will take part in a raku fire. For this occasion we will be visiting the 137º outdoor studio, located 45 km distance from the city, and we will spend the day outside, experimenting with this popular firing technique where the fire and smoke come together to create unique patterns and designs.

137º Ceramic Art Studio offers access to a variety of different firing methods: 3 electric kilns, 1 gas kiln, 1 raku kiln and pit and smoke firing. Our premises consists of a 300 square meter studio in Barcelona and a 45 square meter studio on the outskirts of Sant Celoni surrounded by the Montnegre and Montseny mountains. Both our indoor and outdoor premises house plenty of room for everybody to work freely to develop their projects. For pictures and a full list of equipment you can click here.
