The workshop is suitable for beginners with clay and more experienced practitioners who are interested in learning the Japanese Kurinuki hand building technique.
Kurinuki translates in Japanese ‘to hollow’ and is a traditional technique to make pottery from carving away or hollowing a single block of clay. It is a methodical and meditative process that produces ceramics that can never be repeated, hence the final result will be unique to you.
Once complete, your beautiful totem will be between 30cm and 40cm tall and suitable for indoor or outdoor installation. If you would like something taller, you may consider installing on top of a post.
