School of Ceramics

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.

Part-Time Ceramic Classes

We started classes at our new premises in Parkwood in February 2022 and are absolutely enthralled by the space and people’s response to it. You are welcome to call Kim and come and visit and see what happens in the space. It might inspire you to come and explore your creativity in one way or another.

We offer ongoing morning, afternoon, and evening ceramic classes for all levels of experience.

We will be having a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning class from 9:30 am – 12:30 am on an ongoing basis. Saturday has two classes, a morning and an afternoon class. There is a Wednesday evening class from 5 – 8 pm. Contact Kim about securing a place in one of these classes. There are limited spaces currently available.

If you are visiting Johannesburg for a few days and would like to join a class, contact Kim before you arrive and she can check if there is space available.

We welcome visits from the public.

WhatsApp (+27 83 377 7499) or email Kim (kim@kimsacks.com) for more info or to make an appointment.

Classes Available During School Holidays

Our school offers limited tuition and space to younger learners who are starting to develop an interest in working with clay. They can come for the duration of the school holidays on a regular basis. It is advisable to talk to Kim about this. Space is limited, so booking is essential. Working with clay is a very helpful way to develop fine-motor skills.

We also teach young learners who are being homeschooled.

8-Week Ceramics Course

There is also possibly an option to do an 8-week series of lessons, depending on availability. This acts as a good introduction. It has a beginning and an end. If you like it, then you will be able to carry on, on a more regular basis.

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 WhatsApp 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 having a conversation with you to find out exactly what your personal needs are rather than only written communication.

Full-Day Workshops

We are also planning on doing regular Saturday workshops, which will be conducted by skilled practitioners from different creative fields. If this interests you, you are welcome to put your name down on our “workshop list”. This can be done by sending Kim an email (kim@kimsacks.com) or a message on WhatsApp (+27 83 377 7499) indicating what your skill level is and what you are aiming to learn.

Life Drawing Classes

We are busy exploring the possibility of starting life drawing classes with a live model. Please email or WhatsApp me for more info on when these sessions will take place. They are currently in the planning stage, and you are welcome to give us your input. We would welcome that.

Paper & Textile Programs

We also offer paper and textile programs on a regular basis during the year. We will post the workshop program as soon as it becomes available.
