Let's Make an Udu

Another two-day ceramics workshop

In case you've missed this workshop last year, this is your chance; Susan Melo organizes another new workshop at Keramiek Atelier Patty Schilder during the weekend of 24 & 25 October 2020.

The udu is a drum made of clay that originates from Nigeria. This musical instrument was developed by the women of the Igbo people, who inhabit the eastern part of the country. 

In this workshop you'll build an udu in the traditional way; using old modeling techniques combined with Susans knowledge of various ancient decoration techniques.


The udu will be finished at the end of day 2 and will be ready to be fired after a few weeks.

Level:  No experience necessary
