Workshop: Painting Weirdo Bud Vases (june 10th)


On June 10th, I invite you to come and paint a pair of weirdo bud vases with me. It will be a fun and inspiring afternoon in which you will learn new decorating skills and explore your creativity. And: the two weirdo bud vases will be yours to keep afterwards!

Find all the details below:


In this course, you will be decorating Weirdo Bud Vases with colored clay slip; the material I use to paint my ceramics. Each student will be given two pre-made slip cast bud vases, which you will be painting entirely with your own design. After painting the vases, I will glaze- and fire your pieces, after which you will receive them by mail.


I will start the workshop with an introduction on painting with clay slip. I will also share some techniques on how I paint some of my favorite pattern designs, and I will share lots of inspiration and examples to help you get started.

After this, we will start painting the bud vases, with help of the examples and techniques I shared. You will start with the face and hair of your characters, before moving to the body of the vases, which you will paint with designs by your choice.

I love color, and I will make sure there will be lots of different colors to choose from! The patterns I paint on my work can be diverse, ranging from polka dots to botanical details. Whichever design you will choose to paint, I will be there to assist and guide you through it, when needed.
