We are so happy to announce that Lidia Bosevski, internationally known potter based in Croatia, will come and teach a two weeks workshop in our studio in Bali in June 2024.

 

The Ceramics and Nature Course is an approach to ceramics through the five senses: two weeks of immersion in nature, creativity, and silence characterizes this course.

Observing and following our impulses, attracted by the most incredible details that nature offers us, awaken our creativity, our natural sense of harmony and aesthetics. Free of preconceptions and expectations, we create our ceramic pieces, being part of nature.

Walking through the jungle and at the beach, we search not only for inspiration but also textures, tools, and materials. Back in the studio, we will investigate and test to select the raw material for the ceramic objects we want to create.

In the Ceramics and Nature Course, we will learn to look further afield to learn about the characteristics of our raw materials, nature and throughout the ceramic process until firing during the ceramic classes.

Participants have the opportunity to create their own collection of ceramic objects inspired by the learning and days of immersion in nature.
