What you'll do

The experience, which is planned to last 2.5 hours, will start with a convivial moment over a drink where everyone will be able to express their creative desires. Then, a quick presentation of the different clay types (black, white, grey, red...) will help to define the material with which each person wishes to work. Step by step, the creations will be shaped with the help of practical and technical advices given according to the different steps of creation. A discovery of 'engobe' and enamelling is also planned.
At the end of the experiment, the pieces created will be put to dry for a later firing.
The finished pieces will be collected from the workshop or sent by post (extra shipping costs to be expected).
Other things to note
If you dream of working the clay, don't hesitate to try the experience, no special skills required, just the desire to create and let go. A convivial moment for a reconnection with the earth/nature/clay and with yourself.

Having always been passionate about ceramics, we initiated a reconversion towards this art in 2015...after having quenched our thirst for creation and given life to our universe by mixing the matt aspect of the clay and the shine of the glaze, we naturally wanted to share this passion by opening the doors of our workshop and offering support to help amateurs create their own unique pieces.
As an AirBnB host for several years, we are used to welcoming and sharing with travellers who choose to stop by. With this 'Create your own Potteries in Cévennes', we would like to share with all those who like to create, discover and be surprised.

Merci pour cette très belle expérience. Emmanuel et Isabelle sont à l’écoute des souhaits de chacun et aident chaque participant à réaliser sa pièce. Le plus dur, c’est d’attendre que les pièces soient finies…

Je suis venue avec ma fille (25 ans) en situation de handicap, Isabelle et Manu ont fait preuve d'attentions bienveillantes, leurs conseils et explications pertinents, et nous avons hâte de voir nos oeuvres cuites et émaillées !

Une très belle expérience dans un cadre idéal pour découvrir ou approfondir les différentes techniques autour de la céramique. Tous deux passionnés et pédagogues, Isabelle et Emmanuel nous ont mis à l'aise pour profiter en famille de cet atelier. Le temps semble s'arrêter pour laisser libre court uniquement à la création... A (re)faire !
