introduction to the use of wild clay

Tierra de arcillas is a pottery workshop located at the foot of the Alpujarras of Almería. Through the use of local clays that we collect, process and turn into clay bodies, we make pieces with origin that speak of the identity of a territory. During this course you will learn to recognize clays in nature, collect them, process them and turn them into pieces with unique characteristics. In addition, all participants will receive a guide with everything learned in the workshop on the use of natural clay. With this guide you can create your own pieces with local clay wherever you are.

Key skills you will learn

Finding and identifying wild clays Processing techniques Tests to know better a clay Basic clay bodies using wild clays Understanding the results after firing

The location – NoNe cerámica

Nora Nebreda is the person behind NoNe, a pottery workshop located in the forests of Ourense, specifically in the village of Abruciños, in Amoeiro. In this small village, Nora has set up a workshop in front of her house, which is surrounded by nature. A perfect place to disconnect from the rhythm of everyday life and enjoy the slow rhythm of ceramics.
