Curators Of Clay Intensive Workshop Sep 2020

We’re so excited to have Rohit Kulkarni and Bhairavi Naik from the ‘Curators Of Clay, Pune’ with us at Slow Pottery, Bangalore in September 2020 for a month long of workshops!

Curators Of Clay

Bhairavi Naik and Rohit Kulkarni co-founded the studio in 2014. 

This is possibly the only one of its kind atelier in the country where the owners are actually full time craftspersons. Everything at the studio is done by them, making clay, crafting each piece of ceramic individually, making their own glazes and firing work in their gas fuelled kilns. 

Their tableware pottery has attracted some of the finest people in the culinary world and we are honoured to have them at our studio during the monsoon season every year, to teach our students some of the knowledge they have gained over the years in their fields of interest.

We have organised two workshops for you, one with Rohit Kulkarni teaching Advanced throwing and with Bhairavi Naik teaching Glaze development & Application. You’ll find details for both workshops below-
