Hook & Cook - Visit Dorte Visby's ceramics workshop and throw your own plates

We invite you inside the workshop, which is located in connection with Galleri Visby, where on Monday 9 September between 13-15 you can try the special technique of throwing your own plates. The throwing technique makes the texture raw and the edge asymmetrical, so no two plates are the same. The plates are subsequently raku-fired - a firing technique that Dorte has many years of experience with.

Dorte Visby's ceramics are inspired by the unique nature of the West Coast and many of her works are raku-fired, where the items are taken red-hot out of the kiln and placed in a barrel with sawdust, which is ignited. The oxygen in the barrel is reduced and has a decisive influence on the colours of the glaze and clay.

Once you have thrown the plates, we will make sure to dry and glaze them so that they are ready for firing on Friday at 1 pm. You are welcome to witness the firing and then we offer a small serving while you clean the plates and we have a chat about the result.  

Price per person: DKK 200,-
