Workshop Details

Bring that warm and cozy feeling into your home with a beautiful electric tea light lantern.

Have you heard the term “Hygge” (hue-guh)? Hygge is a Danish concept that embraces a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being. It encompasses creating a warm and inviting atmosphere, enjoying simple pleasures, and cherishing moments of comfort and togetherness. ♡

Timeline

1. Build & Sculpt
Create your tea light lantern using our high fire clay. We will dry and fire the clay in the kiln. 2 hours of instruction, stay up to 30 min after to finesse.

2. Glaze
Return to the studio to add the beautiful glazes. Book at least one week after your build date. We recommend 1-1.5 hours, depending on the amount of detail :)

3. Pick Up
We will fire it again in the kiln. Approx. 10 days after glazing, it’s ready to be collected

Stoneware Clay 101

The most important thing to remember when working with clay is to relax and enjoy the process of making hand made art! Clay is like magical mud for creating fantastic pottery and cool ceramics. First, you shape it into whatever you want. Then it has to air dry and go into a super-hot oven called a kiln, where it gets fired at really high temperatures (around 1,200°C!). After it’s been fired once it’s ready for the colourful and clear glazes! Finally. it gets fired again to cure the glazes to the clay. 

“Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home.”
