Free Autumn Ceramics Workshop
September - October 2020
The National Museum of Slovenia is setting up a free ceramics workshop, which will take place from 28th September to 2nd October 2020 in Ljubljana. The workshop is open forinternational and public. The participants are individual artist working in the field of ceramic art using a pottery wheel, and would like to improve their knowledge.
At the workshop we learn some traditional pottery techniques of throwing on the pottery wheel and explore contemporary variations of pots. Participants also have the opportunity to fire ceramics in a traditional wood-burning kiln (reduction firing).
A renowned Slovenian ceramist Štefan Zelko will lead the workshop in collaboration with Eva Peterson Lenassi, a associated partner, academic sculptor, and potter from Pottery atelier SEM.
The workshop runs for five (5) consecutive days, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendance is mandatory all days. Equipment, materials, and lunch are provided and free of charge.
The workshop is part of the European project CerDee, within the cooperation program INTERREG V-B Central Europe 2014–2020, which is co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund and own funds.
