In the first 3 hours of the morning session, you will focus on creating objects and centering. In the afternoon, after a 1.5-hour lunch break, the second part of the day consists of another 3 hours dedicated to trimming, where you will refine your pieces.

After the course, the staff will fire your creations in our kiln and then glaze them. During the course, you can choose from 3 available glazes, and we will glaze the pieces for you. If you prefer to glaze your own pieces, you can reserve a free 2-hour session during our workspace, where a staff member will guide you through the glazing process, or you can glaze during another class. If you want to glaze your pieces, please email us. Please note that the glazing session can be held at least two weeks after the course.

After glazing, your pieces will be ready within four weeks.

The course is open to everyone and perfectly suitable for beginners. 

 

The course price includes all the materials and firing costs. The student can produce up to 8 pieces.

It is highly recommended to come with comfortable clothes since you will get dirty. One clean apron will be given to you to further protect your clothes. It is recommended not to have long nails. 

Following the trimming class, the staff will fire your creations and they will be ready within four weeks after the last date of the course. The staff will send an email to the person who made the reservation when the creations are ready for pickup, and they can be collected during the opening hours. 

After the trimming class, the student can choose from three glazes, and the staff will glaze their pieces after firing. If the student prefers to glaze the pieces themselves, they can do so during the workspace sessions or the upcoming glazing classes. We invite the student to contact us at hey@lokistudio.ch to schedule the glazing class!
