Bergamotte XXL Pop Up Dschungel 

This fall, Argile Studio was invited to hold a series of hand-building planters workshop at the Bergamotte XXL Pop Up Store, held at the Berlin Arena in the Glashaus.

For the duration of the Pop Up, Argile Studio invited participants to create small personalized speckled clay planters using various hand-building techniques. Keegan 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, glazed white and pick up by the owner a few weeks later.

Katie Gillies 2nd Coaster Workshop

In August, Argile Studio was happy to welcome back Katie Gillies for another installment of her Coaster Workshop.

Following the format of her first visit, she came to our studio for two sessions of a three-hour workshop, during which she taught us how to create and make customized Jesmonite terrazzo coasters.

The workshops included a detail demonstration on how to mix the colored Jesmonite and how to cast it into silicone moulds. Following the demonstration, everyone was able to make their own set of coasters with the design and colors of their choice.

While we waited for the coasters to dry and cure, refreshments and snacks were shared and Katie was on hand to provide more tips and information.

This past June, Argile Studio was invited to hold a hand-building workshop for the launch party of bergamotte.de

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.
