34 Running with the horse

August 17th – 30th 2014

Handbuilding. Beginners and advanced

In this workshop you will experience ways of loosening up; of allowing your intuitive inner voice to speak; of playing; and of ‘just doing it.’

I create an atmosphere of calm acceptance in which it is safe for you to be yourself and for that to be celebrated.

You will
be in the moment
doodle
do exercises with your eyes closed
do exercises with your non-dominant hand
experiment
play, be free
learn to accept the outcome
find that your creative voice has a lot to say
find your strengths
find out what your creative voice wants to say
gain confidence

We will do this via the medium of clay, with some drawing and painting.

This way we will discover what your intuition wants to do, and then you will do it!

You will be able to use slips and coloured glazes, and we will be able to fire work during the course.

This workshop is suitable for professional ceramicists and for complete beginners.

Cost: € 1700

The workshop fee includes
the following:
- Tuition (class is 6/7 hours per day with 12 hours studio time)
- Materials and firings 
- Lodging in double room; single room on request at extra cost of € 280 €
- Welcome dinner and welcome breakfast
- A freshly prepared full Tuscan lunch with wine on all working days



La MeridianaSandy Brown 'Today it is hard to imagine the European ceramics scene without her. She is famous for her spontaneous, passionate use of clay and colours. Her almost provokingly simple use of form and her strong, energetic brush decorations feed from direct emotion, from confidence in her own intuition and from a portion of childlike anarchy she preserved for herself. Sandy Brown's catalytic, liberating influence on European ceramics in the seventies and above all eighties must not be underestimated. At a time when European ceramics threatened to get stuck between Asiatic ideals and local traditions, her impetuous, lustful approach to the material demonstrated exciting new possibilities.'
