What you'll do

During the workshop, you will immediately plunge your hands into the ground! 2 options to choose from for the materials: sandstone or mixed earthenware. You will discover the technique of stamping in a plaster mold. The plasters are numerous in the workshop and you will be able to choose among all the models proposed the one which corresponds you the best: bowl, spoons, seeds, pumpkins, spheres ...
In the use of sandstone, there is no special preparation before stamping, simply spread the soil. The gestures are free. For Earthenware faience, it is a question of superimposing several layers of different colors of earth (black, gray and white during the workshop) to obtain a particular drawing. This technique requires patience and care but the result is always fascinating! As the grounds are mixed, to find the reason, it will be necessary to clean it with the esteque then to sand it down. You will definitely have to finish your piece
(part sanding at home) because it must be completely dry.

Visual artist and designer for many years, modeling, sculpture and ceramics are an integral part of my approach. My preferences go to the practice of porcelain and faience mixed earth.

Merveilleuse expérience avec Violaine, qui partage son art avec générosité et passion. Nous avons aimé découvrir son parcours de plasticienne, son univers onirique et symbolique, sa culture des arts, et ce lieu hors de l'espace-temps qu'est l'atelier.

Violaine est très agréable, sympathique, calme et esprit cultivé. J étais passionnée de terre. Après la expérience, nous avons pris un thé dans son salon. J ai passé une heureuse journée et une très belle rencontre. Je vraiment recommande.
