Atelier des Tropiques opens its doors during a weekend to allow you discover ceramics through different techniques of object production.
Atelier des Tropiques is a place specifically dedicated to ceramics, founded in 2017 by three ceramist graduates from ENSAV La Cambre (Manon Picot, Lisa Héroux and Elise Folliot).
They provide evening classes for an amateur audience, but also technical courses and masterclasses for experienced ceramists. The workshop is intended to be a platform for exchange around ceramics, and also offers an artist residency program.
The Open Doors weekend will be punctuated by demonstrations of different techniques and stages of production of a ceramic object (molding, modeling, ceramic 3D printing, potter's wheel). There will be exhibitions of the completed and ongoing projects of the three founders of the workshop, as well as projects of invited ceramists.
The proposed projects illustrate different ways of approaching the material, and invites you to take an open look at the question of functionality.
