Therapeutic properties of clay are well known. There is no need to try to relax. Just take a lump of clay and let it work its magic. In no time you will be transporeted to a place of mindfulness. Book workshop for yourself or bring a neighbour, a friend, colleague, and do tell us if it is a gift or a special occasion you are celebrating by creating something unique in clay.
Here at Art Studio Laura Rainbow we are incredibly lucky to be situated in an unspoilt countryside but only 20 minutes drive to the center of Zagreb and we offer individual workshops held in the studio and also outdoor when weather permits. Our workshops last for 3 school hours (135 minutes). They are suitable for one or two persons booking together, such as two friends, mother and daughter or mother and son, girlfriend and boyfriend, work colleagues. You can book as few or as many workshops as you wish. Date for each workshop is agreed separately to suit all parties.
All necessary tools, clays, glazes, special engobas and two kiln firings per workshop in a ceramic kiln on temperatures of 1000ºC are included in the price.
Play with clay will take us to a place of calm, connection and focus.
Choose what type of workshop suits you the best or book all three as many times as you wish.
Individual clay modelling workshop is created for adults and children alike. This calming tactile workshop is tailor made depending on your previous experience therefore suitable for total begginers as well as more advanced students. At the end of the three school hours you would have made one or several items, depending on your experience and preference. The pieces will be left in the studio to dry, will be glazed and fired twice in special ceramic kilns and will be ready for collection in approximately two to three weeks depending on the size of your items and the type of clay you used. Alternatively we can ship your pieces to your home address at a fee.
Individual clay decorating workshops are meant for adults and children alike. You will decorate your own hand modelled pieces you have made at previous workshop with special ceramic paints called engobas. Allow your imagination to take charge and free your hands to express themselves through drawing and painting clay. After drying, glazing and two firings you can collect your pieces. Alternatively we can ship your pieces to your home address at a fee.
Should you like your fired pieces to become watertight and food safe it is necessary to glaze them. Laura will glaze your pieces in transparent clear glaze. However should you like to experience this part of the process and glaze your own pieces and choose from a selection of about 30 ready made glazes, please book our glazing workshop. Your glazed items must be kiln fired one more time and you can collect your hand modelled, hand painted glazed item and proudly present it as a gift to a loved one or simply keep it yourself for everyday use or as an original piece of art.
Due to specific process, glazing workshops are suitable for adults only. However, Laura can glaze kid’s work. In that case the fee payable is only 100,00kn.
All workshops last 3 school hours (135 minutes), are held indoors or outdoors (with access to warm running water and toilet in our sudio). The prices are per person and include all necessery materials, clays, glazes, engobas and use of tools. Children must be accompanied by adults.
