Intensiv pottery week


This offer is suitable for anyone who wants to seriously learn the craft of pottery on the wheel and get to know the different working steps with the aim of making their own pottery. Take the time to create your own plate set, your own family of vases or your own tea set.

Intensive week: 5 days of 4 hour sessions. 1`100CHF the whole 5 days. The course can be taken by a maximum of two people.

If booked for two people, both pay 1`900CHF together.

Residents of Zermatt receive a 10% discount on the offer. 

Included in the price is the use of 10kg of clay, all our available tools and the firing and glazing according to your color preference by our ceramist (the whole glaze range of Zermatt Ceramics is at your disposal).

During these 5 days you will learn the basic techniques of pottery on the potter's wheel and you will apply them directly to your own project. This will be discussed in advance with our ceramist, who will create a suitable programme with you to realise your idea. You will also gain an insight into each individual step of the ceramic production process. This intensive course includes practically exclusively the shaping as well as part of the surface design of your pieces. The glazing and firing will be done by our ceramicist.

Half of the booked course is paid in advance with additional Mwst. of 7.7%. You will receive an invoice after contacting and planning the week (adapted to your wishes) with our ceramist. After your last session with us, you will receive a second invoice with the balance and any additional costs. Additional costs occur in the following cases: 

- If you want to have more clay fired than is included in the workshop per person. For each additional lump of clay of 250g we will charge you 22.5CHF plus Mwst. of 7.7%.

- If we have to send your finished ceramics by post. After your final visit to our ceramic studio in Furi, the pieces will be ready for personal collection after two weeks. If this is not possible, we will send the pieces by post with the additional insurance "FRAGILE". So you will be charged the shipping costs of 15CHF-30CH. This depends on the weight of the created pieces. Whether shipping is possible depends on the condition of the ceramics, which is assessed by our ceramist. Furthermore, Zermatt Ceramics accepts no liability for possible delivery of damaged goods by the postal service, despite additional insurance "FRAGILE".

- Exclusively for residents of Zermatt, we offer personal home delivery if you are unable to collect your ceramics from the studio. For this we charge you an additional 25CHF for delivery.

This course is normally always offered from Monday to Friday. Weekend sessions are also available on request. Please contact our ceramist directly to plan your intensive week at keramik@zermattkollektiv.ch or call 079 952 48 58.

We look forward to your questions and a creative time together in our beautiful studio in Furi.
