Pottery & Creativity

Book NOW for your team building!Cherie Kossmann Lace Platters

Anyone can be artistic or creative, a little guidance is all that is needed. There is nothing more fulfilling for myself to create an art piece where I can stand back and look at it and say: “I really made that.” Art does not need to be intimidating or scary, it should be fun! And that’s what I am planning to bring to my students.

I offer pottery classes for beginners who is looking to relax, meet new people, start an exciting hobby or even make a living in the future.

Anyone can attend classes, you do not need an artistic background or experience.

Hand building techniques is my forte, so my main focus will be on that - I will teach you different building techniques, from building a simple pot to sculpting. Also basic firing techniques, mold making, slip casting, glazing and many more interesting pottery “need to knows”.

In the interim I would like my classes to take part in exhibitions held in the Western Cape during the year and have group exhibitions at our premises for close friends & family. I would also arrange workshops by other artists as you can never learn too much!

Team Buildings:

I also host Team Buildings, Kitchen Teas & Workshops for different events. I have hosted for companies like Old Mutual, Metropolitan, Media 24, Allan Gray & Juta Books.

It has become very popular with companies to empower their employees by encouraging team work to get a positive end result in the working environment.  And what a great way to do that other than POTTERY CLASSES! It

Old Mutual 2011

is something fun and different, no experience needed!

Male, female, young, old, they all enjoy themselves equally!

Different projects to suite each company will be brought to the table whereas team work will be the key word. From building a master art piece for the daring, to painting pottery, designing & making a winning group installation.

I can come to your venue if required.

    Hi Cherie

    Just a note to say much I really am enjoying the classes. I’m learning lots from yourself and everyone in class. Working with clay is really an awesome medium of self-expression and so therapeutic, healing the inner-self.

    Thanks so much.

  • Thank you so much Nazelle! I am also learning so much from everyone. It is amazing how creative everyone can be.
    I have seen the beginner turn into a very capable student and the unsure building up confidence!
    This has always been my dream to teach and what better way than to teach something creative and so therapeutic like you said!
    You are extremely talented and I think you have a clay bright future ahead of you :)
