What we're about

UDUMBAR Pottery Studio (https://www.udumbara.fi) in Kallio "the creative" district of Helsinki offers Pottery classes in English (Osaamme myös suomea, tervetuloa. Vi talar också Svenska, välkommen).

IMPORTANT: Limited attendance, so only registered guests. You can register from the link in the event's details. Thank you.

At UDUMBARA you are submerged in an artist's studio and learn how to handle local wild-clay. At Udumbara it is genuinely "slow design" as the big pottery kiln is only fired a few times per season and it takes more time and patient when working with wild-clay.

The clay we work with is from the small village of Kultela in Somero, Southwestern Finland.

Watch here how it is made: https://youtu.be/U1jIMymtpfs?t=33

At the wheel classes, we make planter pots.

Wild clay gives the products a wonderfully rich earthy character. By choosing this local raw material Udumbara pottery wants to emphasize the unique and ecological value of this clay. And, as Udumbara is an earth-friendly studio, it runs on solar energy.

Like piano playing, the pottery wheel takes time and patience to master, and beginners may become frustrated early on.

We will wedge and prepare you plenty of clay to practice on. You should challenge yourself to take time to learn a skill and to think about your values and sustainability as a maker.”

When you make pottery at Udumbara, you don't just make handmade pottery; you get a piece of Finland too!
