Bergamotte Germany Launch Party
This past June, Argile Studio was invited to hold a hand-building workshop for the launch party of bergamotte.de
Started in France and now in Germany, Bergamotte is an online botanical shop that host pop-up stores and plant related special events.
For the launch party, Argile Studio invited participants to create small personalized terra-cotta planters using various hand-building techniques. Marilyne and Lisa were presents to teach and guide them though the whole process. The pieces were collected and catalogued and later brought to the studio to be fired and pick up by the owner a few weeks later.
It was such a pleasure meeting everyone and we were blown away by the participants creativity!
Kana London Workshop Series
The last week-end of May, Argile Studio hosted a series of workshop with visiting ceramic artist Ana Kerin from Kana London.
Ana’s approach to clay work is experimental and playful. She works with a unique mixture of clays and mix her own signature glazes, often turning her back on traditional ceramic practice. Hand building, rather than turning on the wheel, further emphasizes the individuality of each of her piece.
Participants to the workshops were able to choose between three different hand-building sessions: a hand-building taster, a large scale vessel workshop or an introduction to the Japanese kunikuri technique.
