Workshop description

Firstly, Dieter will welcome you with a smile to his beautiful workshop! Then, he'll teach you a little about ceramics and the different techniques used to create beautiful items. 

You'll also see that there are several modelling techniques, but in this workshop you'll be focusing on the pinch or mould technique!

The first step is to prepare the clay to remove air bubbles. Then, it's time for modelling. Dieter will accompany you step by step in the creation of your tray to ensure you make something that you'll love for a long time to come.

Once your tray is finished, Dieter will take care of the glazing and firing. You can then pick it up a few weeks later! 

This workshop is an opportunity to try your hand at clay modelling with a true enthusiast and to create a beautiful tapas tray to display proudly at every dinner party! 

This workshop is offered in French, English and Dutch simultaneously. Cécile will adapt the language of the workshop according to the participants present.

Meet Dieter T.

Dieter is a creative person with a love of nature. Beekeeper, ceramist and photographer, he practices all three on a daily basis! 

He fell in love with nature when he was younger and it's been a passion ever since. This is why a lot of his personal photographic projects have focused on capturing the beauty of nature, as well as various environmental issues. 

His concern for the environment led him to become a beekeeper. Dieter has about thirty hives and loves teaching others about his craft. 

More recently, his love of the Earth and its elements led him to the world of ceramics. Being able to create something beautiful from clay fascinates him. And he's more than happy to share his knowledge and expertise with you!

Cat lovers are very welcome!

Dans son atelier-maison très lumineux et cosy, on découvre toutes les créations de l'artisan et ce qui nous attend. Dieter est chaleureux, pédagogue et on vit chaque étape de la création de notre plat à tapas en céramique. On manie l'argile et tous les outils pour réaliser notre oeuvre. Même novice, on finit super fier de notre création grâce à Dieter. Super chouette expérience.

Nous sommes accueillis par Dieter dans sa maison-atelier ou règne une ambiance propice au calme et à la création, sous son regard bienveillant et encourageant. On arrive ,à notre insu presque,à réaliser de magnifiques pièces de poterie.
je recommande vivement les ateliers de Dieter.
