Course focusing on textures and coloured clays.
This course includes a practical and a theoretical part. The teacher Nathalie Doyen will teach a technique inspired by nature (such as lichens or molluscs adhering to a rock) and through repetitive gestures will lead the participants to a meditative concentration necessary to develop wonderful textures. During this course, the tactile qualities and velvety colours of clay will be examined. Participants will have the opportunity to make both a sample and small objects by practising the technique of artist and teacher Nathalie Doyen.
The lessons are totally practical in addition to a theoretical chapter, firing and materials and a DPF (Frequently Asked Questions) session.
