Creativity – play of the soul

Adults are also allowed to play, and art is a popular way to do this. My creative pottery and painting courses invite you to have new experiences. Because of course my creative pottery & painting courses also have a deeper meaning, for example opening up to new things, experiencing the joy of creating, recognizing your own expression in your actions, strengthening each other or simply chatting and exchanging ideas with other course participants.


A big concern of mine is the course offerings for children. In today's digital age, I think it is particularly important that children can continually rediscover and experience themselves in a new way - holistically using all their senses - through creative pottery and painting courses using different materials and techniques.

The language of the soul

In creative self-expression the soul shows itself in its perfection. Be it the joy and ease of cooking, gardening, playing, singing, painting, pottery or taking photos. Or in their deep vulnerability, in their sadness, fear or despair. The term creativity encompasses the infinite variety of possible expressions.

Space of development

My creative courses and seminars offer a protected space for inner development. Free from norms, evaluations and performance demands, the experience of “getting involved” opens doors to the joy of experimentation and discovery.

Course offerings and newsletters

You can find a complete overview of my course offerings below . Due to my professional situation, I currently only offer courses upon request. The minimum number of participants is 5 people; individual appointment requests are possible at any time by arrangement.

A day for me – free painting for adults

In the pleasant atmosphere of small groups, new doors open into inner spaces with the gift of painting. Free painting is where your own ideas, feelings and thoughts find their appropriate artistic expression. In these processes I am happy to provide the participants with advice and support, for example when it comes to finding ideas, painting techniques or the question of image composition and much more

You can take part in the painting course as part of the Meditation and Painting event on Saturday.

Burning service

Not everyone who starts making pottery can buy a kiln right away. For this reason I offer you a burning service:

Pottery at home

They make their own pottery at home. After drying, bring me your workpieces for raw or bisque firing (900° Celsius). You can paint or glaze your objects in my studio on an agreed date. After the subsequent glaze firing (between 1150° - 1220° Celsius), your ceramic works are finished and ready for collection.

Own clays and glazes

To avoid damage to my kiln, I limit my firing services to the clays and glazes I use myself. Possible exceptions are only possible after prior agreement.

Price overview for burning service:

10 kg of clay: 15€

Raw spirit: 6€/kg clay

Glaze firing: €9/kg clay
