In this crafty workshop, you’ll learn the art of clay weaving and create your own hand-built object, such as a basket or vessel.
First, we’ll prepare clay slabs and coils using strips and cut slabs.
Then, you’ll weave your project over a mold or form to create the desired shape.
I’ll demonstrate the technique and offer guidance throughout the process.
Once your project is complete, it will need to dry in my studio before it can be bisque-fired. After that, you can choose from three glaze colors, which will be applied and fired in my kiln.
You can pick up your finished piece after two weeks.
Join this beginner workshop. It is perfect for you if you’re interested in textiles, crafts, and clay.
What can you make?
One basket or another woven clay piece.

The Clay, the use of the Studio tools, one colored glaze of your choice, two firing to finish your object, and tea & cookies,

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.
I am looking forward to seeing you in my studio.
