Slab building workshop

Architectural form, 3-hour workshop

with Kesem Yahav


Slab building is working with sheets of rolled Clay. You can cut, fold, curve, and join the clay sheets.

It is a beautiful way to create structure, forms, and detailed pieces. I enjoy this way of working and can spend hours designing and building slab pieces.


In this workshop, you will learn about the slabbing technique and make an architectural form.

You can add imprinted, textural surfaces and cut-out details to make your creative structure.

We will work with soft and hard slabs (leather hard). When slabs are left to dry, it is easier to construct them,

making them perfect for building architectural pieces.

I will demonstrate and give step-by-step instructions about rolling, cutting, attaching, and slab building.


Each one will create their object and decorate it, using underglaze colors.

When the project is finished, you will leave it in my studio so it can dry.

After the first fire, I will glaze it in clear glaze, fire it again in my kiln, and it will be ready for pick up after two weeks.


What can you make? 

One architectural form.

You can already think about your idea and bring sketches of the object you want to make.


What’s included in the price?

The Clay, the use of the Studio tools, transparent glaze, underglaze colors, two firing to finish your object, and tea & cookies,

Meet your instructor

Hi, I am Kesem, a ceramic designer and a Creative Coach.

I’ve been working with Clay for the last 20 years. I run my Amsterdam Clay studio, making small-batch ceramics collections and working B2B with European shops.

 I have been teaching for 20 years. I gave different clay workshops and hosted many groups for their team-building events and party workshops at my studio in Amsterdam.

So, I bring my rich experience with Clay and creativity to every workshop. 

Besides that, I’m also a life and creativity coach and studying to become a Clay Therapist.

I am looking forward to seeing you in my studio.
