Throwing classes and Workshops

„Good opportunity to calm down after a busy day.“, Kathleen Petz, Marianne Jeindl & Iris Knapp

Throwing classes, Porcelain workshops, special guests, holiday and weekendclasses:

I've got five to eight students per class. This way it is possible to learn the techniques with professional instruction in an individual, creative and relaxed atmosphere. Also you can work in the "Open studio".

In the region of Stuttgart, Esslingen, Reutlingen and Tübingen this is one of the rare pottery and porcelain studios which offer continuous classes.

My porcelain workshops

First we see a slide show with the work from 10 porcelain potters. Then I show a lot of little tips and tricks you have to know to be able to throw this difficult and beautiful material . How do we avoid worps and cracks? We train throwing really thin to get translucensy, we work with shellac and underglazes.
Other subjects will be : Lamps , underglazes , gold , colouring porcelain .
This workshop is for advanced students and proffessionals, who want to try porcelain and porcelain potters who want to learn new tricks. It'll be exciting!
