Hand Building with Clay

Ended - Saturday 13 March 2021

As a potter, Amani prefers exploring a process outside of a result-oriented context. To Amani, becoming a potter meant embarking on a journey, destination unknown. She believes she must remain open minded, observant and humble in order to explore the possibilities and ideas that present themselves through one's environment and nature. Her practice is intuitive and respectful of her heritage, experience and sense of aesthetics instilled through her surroundings, upbringing and education. Amani perceives pottery as a very technical craft. Through diligent practice, repetition and perseverance Amani aims to grasp the layers of skill and understanding required to make proper pottery. The potter's craft requires humility and acceptance of the challenges as a learning opportunities rather that an obstacle and discouragement. Amani believes that the process requires a quiet and a calm mind, hands and eyes working together in order to execute an idea into a tangible object.

Join this introductory hands-on pottery workshop with Amani Eltigani Badur, the founder of Amani Ceramics Pottery & Art studio, who will guide participants in making functional pottery and decorative ceramics using only their hands, fingers and simple tools. Participants will be introduced to the fundamental techniques of coiling and slab-building guided by clay hand-building demonstrations. These processes will then be used to build a cylindrical shape as a mug, cup, or oil incense burner. The workshop will also cover decorative techniques like imprinting using plastic elements or crochet.
