Event Series Event Series: CERAMICS SUMMER SCHOOL
Thursday 11 Jul 2024


9:00 - 15:00 Børnehaven 3rd floor 1800 kr.

Absalon’s ceramics workshop invites you to a 5-day Ceramic Summer School. Together with other ceramic enthusiasts, you will have the opportunity to learn techniques, play with materials and make beautiful, functional, artistic objects that you can take home. We will do a new activity each day, like calm yoga/stretching, going on an inspiration trip or taking a dip in the ocean.

As a starting point, you will hand mold a jug and a vase using pinching, coiling technique and slab technique. You will also try your hand at colour selection and engobes. Absalon’s ceramicist glazes all your pieces after the course.

We start most days by getting our bodies moving before we have to immerse ourselves in design and decoration. We have lunch together at 12:00 every day. If you have allergies that we need to be aware of or any questions, please write to

We meet for breakfast in Absalon and then we spend the day building a jug using coiling technique.
