What you'll do

Inspiring and heartfelt words have gotten me through difficult periods in my life and step by step they helped me in creating a path through nature that has grown and shaped the little world I live in now, my Simbolik, that I would like to share with you.  You are welcome in my house and my atelier and be inspired in making a work of art to cherish and to remember Bruges by, I would like to help you bring out the artist in you.
Clay is a very organic material and let's you forget about anything else, it also has it's restrictions, which I will help you overcome.  You'll be making your own collage, one or more, depending on the time, I'm flexible as the clay! ;-) by using all kinds of shapes and by adding your own handwriting. I will help you 'erase' faults and make an interesting collage. You can put a lot of simbolism, figurative elements and thoughts into it.
Of course there will be time to reflect at a cup of tea or coffee or juice with some Belgian cookies, all our senses need to be adressed! At the end you'll get to choose which colourtones you would like it to be coloured in and I will send it to your home, shipping price not included.
Other things to note
The clay needs to dry and then it needs to be fired twice, that is a process of weeks I will do, I'll make sure it is wrapped and boxed and send to your home adress. The shipping price is not included

I'm a calligrapher and lettering artist and selected by 'Handmade in Brugge' as one of the artists making Bruges an artistic and historic work of art! I have been wanting to live and work in Bruges, twelve years prior to the moment I was able to accomplish that! I've been living and working in 'Simbolik', for seven years now, in the house that I renovated and decorated with all the skills I have, up until now. Here I create my work, I sell it and I have one guestroom where I host people who are discovering my beautiful, historic and inspirational Bruges. Excited?

Nathalie was such a gracious, knowledgeable and kind host. She offers an incredibly cozy experience in the comfort of her own home/shop, with so much inspiration to draw from all around you while you’re creating your own art. She is talented and caring, and we connected on many levels beyond ceramics. I highly recommend you check it out.

My friend and I spent a lovely couple of hours learning about how to create a collage out of clay - that Natalie will dry, fire and then send to us. It was great to learn how to use the tools, to have practice versions and then do the final piece. The workspace is lovely and charming, the cats were adorable - and everything was just perfect.

My husband Robert & I had a wonderful time visiting Nathalie's studio. What a unique experience! If you are considering this activity, we encourage you to go for it. Neither of us are "artists" but we trusted her guidance and it was a fun adventure. We don't need to purchase store-bought souvenirs when we have memories to acompany the artwork we created ! -Theresa
