What you'll do

Do you want to get your hands dirty without any regrets??? I hope so because handling with ceramics it will not be a clean job! But it will be extra relaxing, fun and soo rewarding at the end! In this experience we will provide the basics of this medium to get the apprentice involved and comfortable with what he has in hands: clay! For that we will start on a brief introduction on how to handle with the material and the rest of the experience to develop your own work. We will provide some examples on what you can achieve, but as in all, you can do almost everything with clay. From now just show up with lots of curiosity, willpower and enthusiasm and we will give you a little push for you to start on! Just for you to know, you can use a lot of things. Since the traditional work tools such as knifes, wood tools, metal tools to other materials like leaves, rocks,... You owe and control this class and she will flow depending on which kind of crowd will be present, so be aware that no class will develop the same way. Don't worry it's a lot to take in, I know. But once you are here we will guide throughout the messiness and give you a clear direction. You will go out from here a new human being and in a hunger for ceramics. And don't forget, everything can happens so watch out, you will leave here completely in love with this medium and proud of your author's piece!

Marisa

Hello everyone! My name is Marisa Grilo and I'm a ceramic artist. Altough I usually use it envolving another mediums in my work, such as textile, organic matter and glass, ceramic will allways be my base to start on. My backgroud in this area started when I was in my third year of bachelor and did a ceramic class. Since then I falled completly in love with this material and I've been in places like Russia and Prague to work on ceramics. That class was the very start of my own practice and since then I begin to discover this art on my own and also discovering my own style as an artist and a sculptor. You will see in my works that I'm very experimental and I'm proud of that! We can do and try everything! If it fails, go for another round!!
