August-Start 5-Week Courses



Thank you so much for your interest in Gyttja Keramik! I hope you can find a class below that fits your schedule.

I look forward to meeting you!



Please read full cours description

5-week courses

Our courses have a 6-person max, so you'll get lots of individual attention

What's included

The price for a 5-week course is 3950 SEK. That includes clay and firing (some studios charge for this separately!) as well as the use of the studio's engobes, underglazes, and glazes.

New students in the Mixed Techniques class

New students will get an introduction to several foundational ceramic techniques. We will spend a week working on each of the following:


  • Throwing (drejning)

  • Trimming (beskickning), the 2nd step of the drejning process, and altering thrown pieces (carving, adding handles, etc)

  • Slab building (kavling)

  • Pinch pots (tumning) and coil building (ringling)

  • Glazing (glasering)


We will also cover proper clay preparation (wedging) and sink-saving studio cleanup. Students will help to prepare their own clay and will clean up their individual work spot. The last 15 minutes of class will be "clean up" time.


Returning students

Students who have previously completed a mixed techniques class with me will have two weeks of wheel access per 5-week session and will have the freedom to work on whatever hand building techniques interest them during the remaining two “clay” weeks.


Returning students will receive a bag of clay and manage their own clay. This means that you can manage the moisture level of the clay and that you can recycle and reuse your clay. This, I think, will make you feel more free to make mistakes, squish them up, and learn from them. 



We don’t offer refunds. Please review the class schedule before you register and plan ahead to be sure that you can attend all classes! Please note that “Ångerrätt” does not apply to free time activities like the ceramics courses we offer, since they are offered during a pre-specified time period.


Make-up class policy

Please review the class schedule and plan ahead to be sure that you can attend all classes! There are no make-up classes, however, if you have to miss class for some reason and you let me know as far ahead of time as you can, I can usually find another students willing to switch a day with you so that you don’t have to miss any class time, but this is not something I can guarantee. You will need to agree on a switch with another student. If we can't find a switch for you, another option is that you continue to work with clay on glaze day and I will glaze your pieces. If you glaze your own pieces on glaze day, you can use lots of colors and experiment with overlapping, brushing, and splattering glazes. However, if I glaze your pieces for you, you'll have to choose just one color and all of your pieces will be glazed in the one color.

If I have to cancel class due to my own illness, I will of course schedule a make-up class(es)!

Extra wheel time for 5-week students

Moving forward, when I am unable to fill my Prova På Drejning public event spots, I will offer them to current 5-week course students who want more wheel time… at a deep discount. The price for a non 5-week course student is 1200 kr. A 5-week student can book a spot for just 660 kr. This discount comes from the fact that:

  • You have already purchased 5-classes, think “bulk pricing”

  • You will be using clay from your 5-week course allowance

  • You will clean your wheel spot. Normally in a Prova På event, I do all the cleaning and my time costs money :) Because learning to clean the wheel is a skill in itself, I don’t teach it to those visiting the studio just once for a Prova På event


If you have already completed you’re beskickning/trimming session, I will use the “scary wooden thing” to clean up the bottom of your pieces and give it a more graceful base (because you won’t be able to trim them). If your trimming session is in the weeks ahead, you can trim these pieces during that time. You will also be able to glaze your pieces week 5 of your course, glaze week!
