Amornthep Mahamart, a well-known and celebrated Thai artist, will lead our 4–day ceramics workshop, assisted by three Thai potters. We wanted to create a unique opportunity for you to discover Thai craftsmanship firsthand. You will learn from the best, whilst making the most of Ko Phra Thong’s landscape.
For four days, you will find yourself immersed in nature, getting your inspiration from the island to create works that bring its dynamic environment to life. You will creatively make use of local resources, such as sand, local leaves and seashells, working freely according to what inspires you, whilst all the while benefiting from Amornthep’s skills and expertise. Most of the workshop will involve hand building to create more natural and organic shapes. You will build a kiln using found materials on the island, with which to fire your work.
The workshop is designed not only to teach you new skills but also to create a mindful and relaxing experience, enriched both by the island’s environment and by the culturally rich experience of working alongside Thai ceramic artists.
