Art project former GRESWARENFABRIEK Reuver
Work on the project in the old factory has proceeded successfully so far. The artwork is constructed with old demolition materials that were released from the factory during demolition.
And we are currently working hard to realize the second part, the 3D printing with clay of portraits of former employees.
To be continued!
KLEIPLEZIER AT HOME
Vanaf 31 maart: Speciaal voor deze (covid 19) binnen blijf dagen en voor kinderen die graag met klei spelen: GRATIS KLEI!
Ik heb op maandag en vrijdag ochtend om 10.00 uur klei pakketjes in de kist voor mijn etalageraam liggen die gratis mee te nemen zijn. In de etalage vind je ook tevens inspiratie. Informatie en korte uitleg filmpjes zijn te zien via de link onderin deze pagina. Je kan de vorderingen ook volgen via mijn facebook pagina. (link zit op deze site)
Wil je graag je eigen creatie laten bakken dan kun je je werkstuk terugplaatsen in de kist als het klaar is. Wel goed in plastic inpakken met je naam en telefoonnummer of emailadres erbij.
Als het werkstukje droog is zal ik het voor je bakken en je een berichtje sturen als het uit de oven is. Hoe lang het zal duren kan ik niet van te voren zeggen. Dat is afhankelijk van de hoeveelheid, dikte van werkstukje en aantallen werkstukjes dat binnenkomt.
Er staan leuke Pitfire workshops op de agenda en een Draai week in 2021.
Voor beginners en gevorderden!

"Working with CLAY brings my home feeling back"
I am happy when I work with clay. I'm from Syria. I have been working with clay since I was 18 years old. In Syria I had a dual exhibition of my work, there was a lot of interest for it. My language coach in Roermond brought me in contact with Cindy and she invited me to come and make something out of ceramics. Now I can work with her and that makes me very happy! Rana.
My name is Marta Kovalska and I'm a student of sculpture and intermediary faculty at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. I spent this summer at Cindy Heldens ceramic studio. It was my first time internship abroad, so I was really excited as to what was going to await for me there. My experience turned out much better than I could have ever anticipated. Thanks to Cindy I felt comfortable and inspired. She gave me a lot of theoretical knowledge and also she was ready to help me all the time I was working with ceramic. She told me about techniques she used in her artwork, taught me wheel throwing and I was so happy to master this new to me thing. There was also enough time scheduled for my own experiments. This internship was a good combination of professional skills and friendly relationships. I think it was a wonderful start into art or ceramics for me. Now I am trying to continue a ceramic practice and I am happy that I can always count on Cindy's advice.
Feels like a holiday
The throwing week at Cindy’s was my first clay experience on the pottery wheel.
What a wonderful week I had, it felt like a little vacation close to home. The environment, playing with the clay, eating and being together with nice people made this week unique. Cindy taught me the principles of throwing in her calm way. Because we alternated the working in the studio with a walk with the dog in the rural area in Beesel, raku, pitfire and koffie breaks and lunches these were very varied and relaxed days. I immediately signed up for my next vacation at Cindy’s.
