SATURDAY CLASSES.

There will be a new intake of students for ongoing classes commencing at the mid-June, for classes starting either mid-June or beginning of July, on a Saturday morning and afternoon respectively. These classes will be taught by myself as well as my colleague, Eylene Clifford who is a past student of mine and who also exhibits her work in the gallery. There are limited places available, and the classes will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

CLASSES AVAILABLE DURING SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Our school offers limited tuition, and space, to younger learners who are interested in starting to develop their interest in clay. They can come for the duration of the school holidays on a regular basis. It is advisable to talk to Kim about this, timeously, and booking is essential. Starting to work with clay as a young person, is a fabulous way to get integrate many different skills into the journey. Come and visit and see for yourself, the possibilities are endless. Clay is very helpful, to develop fine-motor skills in all people.

LIFE DRAWING CLASSES

We are busy exploring the possibility of starting life drawing classes with a live model.

Please e-mail or what’s app me for more info on when these sessions will take place. They are currently in the planning stage. You are welcome to give us your input. We would welcome that.

We also have paper and textile programmes on a regular basis during the year. We will post the workshop programme as soon as it becomes available.

What is sometimes possible, you need to ask.

There is also possibly an option to do an 8 week series of lessons, depending on avaibility.

You will be able to either do a beginners block for 8 weeks, or as a more advanced student, choose something you would like to explore for 8 weeks. If this block of classes interests you, please e-mail or call me on what’s app and let’s see what can be arranged to suit your creative needs.

You are welcome to e-mail or message Kim on whatsapp. As soon as I am able to call you, once I receive your message I will. I prefer a conversation to find out exactly what your personal needs are than only a written communication.

FULL DAY WORKSHOPS ARE ALSO PLANNED

We are also planning regular Saturday workshops, given by skilled practitioners, in different particular creative fields, as well throughout the year, so if this interests you are welcome to put your name down on the “workshop-list”. This can be done sending an enquiry email or what’s app indicating what your skill level is and what you are looking to learn.

We will also be offering classes for children during school holidays, and at half or mid-term. We also teach learners who are young and doing home schooling.

if you are visiting Johannesburg for a few days and would like to join a class (depending on availability), write and ask, preferably before you arrive. Lots is possible.

If you need to find out more about the classes on offer, in general, you can either send Kim a message via what’s app or have a look at the school section of the website. We also have a fabulous instagram page which is constantly being updated. #kimsacksschoolofceramics

Working with our hands, has many fabulous advantages, and is a very profound thing. Clay heals. It is a Balm. It is Magical and takes us to far-away places inside ourselves. Come and explore. You are welcome to visit and see what we do.
