Mas & Miek Ceramic House
Often we are equally as excited about the ceramic plate our food is presented on than we are about the food itself. If this sounds like you, then you should be excited about Mas & Miek Ceramic House. The Ceramic House comes from creative mother-daughter duo Mieke and Charlie De Deyne, whose work you may be familiar with from their pop-up shops and GOMA market visits. The Ceramic House realises Mieke and Charlie’s dream to open a permanent shop, as well as a ceramic studio for classes and workshops, with eight wheels, work benches, kilns, tools, storage, a clay bar to purchase your clay from and more. You can purchase one, four, or ten classes, then book online for either a throwing or hand-building class. It doesn’t matter if you are a clay novice or a seasoned professional – The Ceramic House works on a open-learning structure, with each session open to all levels. There are limited spots in each class, which means you can progress and learn in your own time and the tutors will come around to individually help each student. All tools, facilities and glazes are free to students, with firing coming at a small cost per weight. The Ceramic House also offers masterclasses, private functions, and Paint A Pot sessions for those not quite ready to get their hands dirty. There is even an in-house cafe and pottery library offering the curious an excuse to sticky beak!
Mas & Miek Ceramic House opens on Tuesday April 18. Bookings are now available online.
