Clay is a fascinating material with endless possibilities.

In Ceramics electives, you learn how to make cups, vases, dishes, sculptures, things with a function that can be used for something and things that just have to look beautiful. You learn the three basic techniques; thumb technique, plate technique and sausage technique. You learn the whole process from getting raw clay in your hand until you have a finished product, how to process the clay at the start, how to build it up, how to decorate, drying time and how to work with the surface to get the desired expression.

You work with two types of clay, both are white. One with chamotte, which is best suited for slightly larger works because it is coarser and more stable. A clay without chamotte, which is very soft and on which you can make more delicate and small details. The school has its own ceramics workshop. Here there are work tables, burners and tools to explore the possibilities that exist for creating exciting surfaces. To surface treat and / or "color" the ceramics, we use coating, oxides and glaze.

In ceramics you work with your hands. A lump of clay can turn into the most amazing thing.
