ATELIERS

Our Ateliers are immersive experiences spanning from two days to a full week and can accommodate individuals and small groups. They are designed to facilitate creativity through re-engagement with the natural world and by inviting you to become a creator of your immediate environment. We believe that the relationships that people build with ceramics in the domestic sphere are deeply intimate and guarantee that after some time spent at Salvadore you will never drink from a cup in the same way again.

These workshops suitable for all levels including beginners, for more experienced practitioners we run offer a year round residency programme here

Weekend Ceramics Atelier

(2 night stay)

This weekend workshop is the perfect time to explore our rustic and traditional approach to working with clay and go home with a finished piece. You will have a full day making where we will walk you through basic hand building techniques including pinching, coiling and using molds. There is plenty of time to experiment with the aim to produce a hand built vessel or a series of smaller adornments. On the second day we invite you to experience the magic of our wood-burning kiln to fire your work before sealing with a traditional wax-polish or leaving unglazed.
