Q. Do you teach wheel throwing?
A. No, I don't teach throwing anymore. There are 2 electric pottery wheels in my studio that can be used during the Open Studio hours.
However, to qualify for the Open Studio, you should have advanced ceramic skills.
Q. I have no experience. Is there a beginner's class?
A. No, as the classes are designed for beginners as well as advanced individuals. Beginners get explanations about tools, materials, techniques and modeling clay. You can bring ideas of your own, or respond to the techniques I will show you.
Q. Can I follow a trial lesson?
A. I'm sorry but that's not possible. I pay a lot of attention to all my students, but especially to the newcomers. Offering the possibility of a trial, would mean that I can pay less attention to my regular students. Plus it wouldn't be fair to the people who are on the waiting list.
Q. I would like to start with the ceramics course a.s.a.p. Is that possible?
A. Currently there is a waiting list for the ceramics classes. However, it may happen that a spot opens up within a few weeks. Therefore, it does make sense to contact me and let me add you to the waitlist.
Q. Do you offer any workshops or classes for children?
A. No I'm sorry, but there are no classes or workshops for children. The minimum age to participate in classes and most workshops is 17. In a few cases there may be an exception to this age requirement.
Q. Regarding the 'Open Studio'. Can I use the studio in the evening or during the weekend?
A. No, sorry. The Open Studio is only available during work days. The evenings are reserved for other activities.
Q. I want to come to the next Raku firing. What should I bring?
A. You have to sign up first in order to participate. This applies to all of my workshops.The specific dates are listed on the Raku Calendar. Once you've signed up, you will receive all the important information from me by email.
Q. I want to sign up for a raku workshop. Can I sign up for a date other than indicated on the calendar?
A. Yes, but only if you register as a group (of at least 10 people), you can apply for other days outside this schedule (throughout the year as well as on Thursday and Friday).
