The ceramics courses at manos are for those who want to get to know the clay and the techniques. All levels of prior clay knowledge are welcome.

Karin Eriksson and Nilla Hellzén hold inspiring and creative courses in their ceramics workshop next to the manos shop. We strive to have good tools, several clays and fine glazes. The groups are small and you get individual help and work based on your own conditions and interests.

Karin has held courses under her own auspices for many years and is a trained ceramic designer at Central St Martins University of Art and Design in London. Nilla took a different path to clay: after many years as a sociologist, she took a pottery course with several different potters, the great love for clay then developed into a multi-year apprenticeship with Karin at manos. As a course participant at manos, you not only get two teachers but also access to the different skills of both.

"Besides the fact that it's one of the better courses I've taken in ceramics, it's clearly a plus that their clay and glazes are insanely beautiful"

semester course

It was with some trepidation that I signed up for my first course at manos, as I had never even touched clay before. It was lucky that I dared. The hand building techniques are above expectations, the "misses" are very helpful and nice and the whole environment at manos is incredibly inspiring. There were more courses. Can't stop!
