REGISTRATION FOR JUNE 2019

Classes in Hand-work, Throwing and Sculpture, for absolute beginners and advanced students. I am currently conducting interviews with prospective students, who wish to start classes in June 2019.

A Beginner’s Course in Handwork will commence at the beginning of June 2019. The minimum time that a student should think of taking a very basic series of lessons would be for 8 weeks, and preferably twice a week. This would really start one on a path of getting a sense of how one goes about working with clay. If you are not able to do this, then obviously once a week would also have benefits.

I will also be offering instruction in Decorating, Sculpture, Glaze making and working with Porcelain and other alternative clay bodies. There are limited places available. The classes will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9.30am – 12.30pm.

There are no evening or weekend classes currently.

Contact Kim by e-mail or what's app to enquire (083 3777499).

THROWING COURSE

It is with great excitement- that I offer a series of lessons/workshops (beginner and master-classes in the wonderfully meditative pursuit of throwing clay forms on the potters wheel.

It is a wonderful skill to have and one that often frustrates people who are new to clay, but if taught with patience and the correct attitude it becomes a hugely gratifying experience. Working on the wheel is a very meditative and gratifying experience – and once one achieves excellence in this area, the pleasure of having a row of exquisitely fine vessels in front of one is just magical and awe-inspiring.

If you are a person studying and want to only come during the school or university holidays- give me a call. That is also possible and I can accommodate you on this basis.

I am also open to students who are in South Africa for a limited period, to coming and taking a limited series of classes. This option depends on the availability of places, but by talking to me, I am usually able to help you design a programme to suit your needs.

If you are a working person, for instance – this should not exclude you from working with clay. I believe that everyone, who feels inclined, should explore what clay has to offer us. I love being a facilitator with that kind of unique process. Come and give it a try. You would be most welcome. I also welcome people with physical handicaps.

My web-site us currently under re-construction, so please contact me directly by e-mailing me at: kim@kimsacks.com - or phoning me on 083 3777499 (I am also on what’s app) I am only too happy to discuss a course that will suit your specific needs and requirements.
