teaching projects

On the pictures you see schools from the area around my atelier. They visit here for ceramic classes. And one of my favorite workshops to teach: making insect hotels from leem and found materials this can be done at every location.

Within an assignment I think it is important to stimulate a certain freedom of expression. In my previous teaching experience I notes that children or students are very focused on creating a perfect result even when they use clay for the first time. My goal is to emphasis on a more artistic approach for example: to show them the quality of a more humble made piece or on the variety of how they can work with one theme.
