Bloom into Spring with our Flower Press Ceramics Workshop

Spring is in the air, and what better way to celebrate the season than by creating your own unique ceramic piece adorned with beautiful pressed flowers?

Join us at st-Art Studio in Amsterdam for our upcoming Live Flower Press Ceramics Workshop, led by the talented Lorena.

This two-hour workshop is the perfect opportunity to explore the art of using flowers and plants as a decorative technique on clay. You’ll have the chance to hand-build a plate and experiment with other ceramic forms, all while learning the process of pressing flowers into the clay.

A selection of dried blooms will be available for you to choose from, but feel free to bring your own special flowers, lace, shells, or other natural elements you’d like to incorporate. No prior experience with clay is necessary – Lorena will guide you through every step, from preparing the clay to creating unique plate shapes.

By the end of the workshop (first we will have to glaze & fire them), you’ll have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind ceramic piece to take home and display. It’s the perfect way to add a touch of spring to your space and celebrate the beauty of nature.

“Join me to explore a decorative technique where botanicals meet earth. Incorporating the process of flower pressing to infuse your creations with a touch of nature.”

Don’t miss out on this chance to get creative and connect with the natural world. Sign up for the Flower Press Ceramics Workshop today and let your creativity bloom!

 

Register now for the Flower Press Ceramics Workshop on April 14, 2024 @ 10-12:00 at the beautiful st-Art Amsterdam Studio. Spots are limited, so secure your place today!

That’s Life – Annet van Belkom

In her newest series, That’s Life, Annet draws inspiration from the song ‘That’s Life’ by ‘Scorz’ to express the idea of life happening in cycles. The introduction of the electronic music track is accompanied by a beautiful story about life and reflects on the idea of who we are as humans and the continuity of life and it’s cycles. From a young age, Annet’s passions were music and painting, but as she started to adult, life took over and made her follow a different path. Three years ago, life forced her to take a step back and gave her passions a chance to step back in. She started painting and felt a deep sense of rest and meditation during her painting hours. The painting took her out of her mind, and, as she explains, it makes her feel like a ‘cocoon’ where she just ‘is.’ Music played a significant role in her life, too, as she was trained in classical music. Annet is very passionate about music and how it makes people feel. Most of the time she listens to music when she is painting, and in her newest series she tries to visualize her own interpretation of the songs […]

About Eliza De Geus an Emerging Artist Eliza De Geus was born in Jarocin in Poland in 1989. Raised in the Netherlands and still based in Amsterdam, Eliza has an enduring passion that internally moves her to look for concepts and inspirations that will help her understand the deeper dynamics of existence and eventually offer profound messages to the external world. Creative Research Eliza graduated in Tax Law, but at the same time, she was always drawn toward creative outlets. After her law dissertation, while Eliza worked as an accounting firm intern, she also attended acting classes.

The time spent in New York implied creativity as the key to finding herself. She felt a revived passion when she returned to Amsterdam. Her path naturally led her to start making art as a self-taught, an urge she did not examine and instead found herself immersed in it. As she was looking for a space to explore and sharpen her creative skills, Eliza finally ended up in st-Art Amsterdam. St-Art Amsterdam and The Philosopher’s series It’s […]
