This week's word in Our Beautiful World was chosen by Ros of Mikey's Mum and is the word
Favourite.Here's my contribution to this.
My new favourite hobby is ceramics.
You must have understood, those of you who follow me on instagram or facebook,that I have been doing ceramics for some months now.
At some point back in June 2015 I had attended a talk on ceramics by George Vavatsis at the
I had really liked that talk and since I really love ceramics I wanted to start some lessons at some point.
So after summer there was a meeting at the teacher's workshop hakahceramics to see how things will go.I decided to do the lessons.
We began by learning the basics, and made a small bowl on the first lesson.
And I realised that I loved what I was doing and I could probably do it well enough!
It became my
hobby!Every six weeks we do one theoretical lesson too, and we change the subject of what we will deal with at the whole session.
After seeing that first little bowl we continued with a bigger one. I really loved working on it for six weeks. It had to have a very small base and be well balanced.
It started somewhere like this.
Halima Cassell and Alev Ebuzziya Siesbye.
Then we started a six-week session on the box. My box started as a big bowl.
The last lesson last week was on glazing our pieces.
I chose turquoise for my big bowl
Anyway I am really happy with my ceramics lessons!The teacher is great and so are his assistants Ifigenia and Georgia.
And I have two great talented colleagues learning ceramics too Efharis and Eleni.This blogpost is my contribution to Our Beautiful World blog in which I have joined to contribute every week for the next six months at least.
