Form to Feast is a hands-on workshop that combines a hand built clay practice with a celebratory shared cheese tasting. It will take place over 3 consecutive Sundays, where you will be guided through the creation of 4-6 wares. On the last day, we will serve a selection of 4 cheeses - local and imported - from Les Amis du Fromage along with our favourite pairings of organic, sprouted nuts and local honey from Melifeera Bees.

In the first session, we will go over design, preparation of the clay, and then spend some time forming your 4 to 6 small vessels. We'll offer you some basic techniques and design options in creating simple pieces that will serve your cheese tasting board.

By the second session, your wares will be fired to a bisqued state, which means they are ready for glazing! We have a range of options for glazing, and you're welcome to approach with a minimalist eye, or with every colour of the rainbow. Once you're finished, we'll glaze fire your pieces, which will cure your wares making them food safe.

In the third and final session, your beautiful wares will be fired and ready to be served in. We will present your wares in a cheese board array to be enjoyed with your fellow makers.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Eikcam Ceramics is a home decor collection, designed and handmade by Vancouver artist/designer, Grace Lee. Most of Grace's work lends a sense of naturalness and whimsy, which serve as functional pieces for the table or home.

The artist's approach to design remains a kind of layered simplicity. She often combines different textures with hues and colours to complement the form, shape, and functionality of the piece.
