GAYA CAC WORKSHOPS
2-WEEK WORKSHOPS: intensive hands-on experiences
Our two-week workshops enable ceramic artists to focus and immerse: furthering their knowledge of a specific aspect of clay, while rejuvenating their creativity amid the energy of fellow artists and the inspiration of a cultural setting renowned for its exquisite artwork and culture. Workshops vary widely in theme, instructor, firing style and focus, and our roster changes every year. Typically workshop programs will comprise ten days of studio activity, 1-2 days of relevant excursions into the cultural wealth and natural beauty of Bali, and the opportunity to independently explore the nightlife (traditional and otherwise) of the artistic enclave of Ubud. All lunches are catered family-style in the studio.
TUITION: USD $2200 inclusive of all studio materials, glazes and firings, catered lunches, welcome dinner, and excursions around the island. Inquire about our Early Bird discount, Student Scholarships, and Last-Minute rates. We will assist in making recommendations and bookings for nearby hotels, bungalows or home-stays in convenient proximity to Gaya studio (accommodation is not included in tuition).
Gaya CAC proudly hosts some of the finest international ceramic artists worldwide as the instructors for our annual series of workshops. With access to wood, soda, raku, and gas firing, we can accommodate nearly any ceramic instructor's interests in workshop concept, and we are ever seeking new instructors who would be passionate about sharing their vision and inspiration at our studio here in Bali.
