Japanese Pottery and Ikebana

Cerdeira

The Japanese Pottery and Ikebana course with Shirobey Kobayashi offers a unique immersion in ceramics, wood-firing, and Japanese culture.

It is a program dedicated to ceramics and the creation of pieces, always in a broader context. The pursuit of beauty and functionality to integrate into everyday life when serving food, tea, or flower arrangements, is the essence of Japanese culture

His philosophy of life is based on peace of mind, which means (for him) living with simple and beautiful things that enhance the aesthetic sense of life.  During the japanese pottery and ikebana course, Shirobey Kobayashi will share with us his philosophy of life-based on this peace of mind, which means living with simple and beautiful things that enhance the aesthetic sense of life.

He will teach you how to integrate ceramics and natural beauty into everyday life through Ikebana and the values and care to be taken when plating food. You'll learn and practise ceramic techniques such as tebineri (hand techniques) and rokuro (potter's wheel) to create chawan, vessels, and bowls, and you'll actively participate in all stages of wood-firing in our 36-hour Sasukenei - Smokeless Kiln. We'll also take part in cooking and enjoying a Japanese meal on the day the kiln cools down.

On the last day, you'll take these pieces home with you, after celebrating our learning with a Japanese tea ceremony.
