Service Description

Le génie d’Egine - The Genie of Aegina Creative Workshop in French. For text in french go to: www.etincelle.gr/stage-ecriture-ceramique How about capturing a bit of a Greek island’s spirit by way of creating texts and ceramics that you will take back home with you? It is what we would like to offer you in this writing and ceramics workshop on the island of Aegina. Come to Aegina and stay in a charming house or room. Meet Maud every day to discover and capture the energy of the island through creative writing: its animated port and evocative archaeological sites, its beaches and wild island, its history, myths and landscapes, its light, its delicious taverns… Marina, on the other hand, will open the doors of her ceramics studio where you will create plates, bowls and cups on which you will “tell” what Aegina will have inspired in you. Just like Aladin and his magic lamp, you will be the master of a crockery filled with some of the island’s magic – memories that you will be able to revisit whenever using it back home. Maud will open up Aegina and its soul to you, guide you into an exploration, through words, of your experiences on the island by way of creative writing games. Writing will be synonymous to pleasure. Your pen will flow as you will allow places, encounters and sensations to inspire you. Memories and imagination will alternate and take you to unexpected places. And as your connection with the island becomes deeper, it will materialize in your ceramics. With marina you will create your pottery inspired by your stay on the island of Aegina. We will use the slipware tradition to make simple and practical everyday objects, decorated and colourful, that you will have the pleasure to eat and drink from. We will make our plates, bowls and cups using the pinch pot, coiling and slab techniques. We will then apply the slip, that white page that covers the red clay, so as to decorate them. You can choose from a variety of techniques: sgraffito, where you draw by scratching off the white slip or paint by adding colours inspired by the landscapes, tell the island’s myths, translate your experiences onto clay and paper, catch the soul of Aegina… and take it back home with you.
