L'atelier en détail

  • 4h
  • 2 à 6 participants
  • 15 ans min.
  • Important: for this workshop there will be a short second session where you pick up the lamp after the firing process and assemble the lamp. More on this below. 

    This workshop, hosted by Dilara, offers an opportunity for participants to delve into the world of ceramics and lamp-making.

    Held over a span of four hours, the workshop introduces two distinct techniques for working with clay. The handform technique allows for the shaping of clay by hand, encouraging creative freedom and resulting in one-of-a-kind shapes and textures. Alternatively, the slab technique involves rolling out clay into flat sheets, cutting shapes to construct the lamp with more precision and uniformity. Under Dilara's guidance, trainees are meticulously walked through each step, ensuring that everyone creates a beautiful and functional lamp.

    Participants are invited to choose from five different glaze colours—white, dark blue, yellow, orange and green—to add a personal touch to their creations. Following the initial session, the pieces are left to dry and undergo a biscuit firing process, after which Dilara applies the chosen glaze.

    Approximately 5 weeks later, participants reconvene for the second part of the workshop, lasting 1.5 hours. This session is not just about admiring the glazed creations, but also about learning the technical aspects of lamp assembly. Skills taught include stripping cables, attaching light switches, connecting cable plugs, and inserting stripped copper wires into the socket. You'll plan this second session directly with Dilara.

    This workshop caters to all skill levels, whether one is a beginner or an experienced artist. By the end of this session, each participant will have successfully created a lamp from scratch and will be equipped with newfound skills.
