Please follow this website to discover the next workshop.
(Out of necessity the Workshop Kerkrade 23/24 August
is cancelled )
The workshop will stimulate you to make the form of your own model flowform smooth and with a fascinating water swing. With support of your own skills you will be introduced in the disciplines of the workshop: Easy modelling
with clay. Getting insight into the 3 dimension-forms and their mutual relations. Learn the technical and artistic applications of shapes that make the water rhythmically dance. During the workshop the water shows us how the work develops

Demonstration flowforms. Working with clay. Modelling of a 2-scale flowform. Start to make a rhythmically swinging water dance and a pulsing out stream. You can experience
the sensibility of streaming water. At the end of the 2nd day you made a nice and well flowing flowform in wet modelling clay. You can take this home or have it made burned and glazed by Ernst
see variations of the flowform. 1-scale. 3-scales. Vortex. Start modelling the variation of your choice. Possibly finishing your beginner design. Valuation of flowforms and of water. We will visit the large flowform cascades on the water cleaning and
the new flowform fish cascade. Both in Soerendonk. (20 km from Eindhoven) At the end of 3rd day you have made a flowform in wet clay of your chosen model. Choose to save this in ceramic processing by Ernst.
How can I make a flowform and
what is the result?
Flowforms are scales in which running water swings back and forth in a swinging way. The water flows further along the scale but also makes two swirling movements transverse to this flow. Here a rhythm is created.
Turning from left to right. This gives you a feeling that dt water is dancing and completely in its own element.
In the workshop we make a flowform by modeling clay. With flowing water we discover how the rhythmic movements can arise and try to make
them as attractive as possible. With modeling clay you build a simple model yourself based on the principles indicated by Ernst. In the pilot flows of the model you can see how the shapes can influence the origin of the rhythmic and swirling water movement.
Afterwards you have a flowform in wet clay. You can have this made sustainable by Ernst. He will dry the models, ceramic preparations, firing and glazing. This costs € 50 per model. After 3 weeks you pick up your model. Shipping the model to your adres
You do not have to install the flowform yourself. With an extra order you can immediately flow your flowform at home. The flowform is placed on a large ceramic dish with a special holder. Also a water supply with pump and possibly
disturbing sound-proofing facilities are present. Prices will be announced during the workshop.
