home: event [ KANA workshop ]

Founded by Ana Kerin, KANA LONDON is a clay workshop with a difference. Rather than using a traditional wheel to create the pieces, Ana’s workshops teach you how to hand build.

With an array of workshops to choose from a you can find one that suits you. From a tableware taster session to a three week course, or something in between.

My approach to work is experimental and playful, as I never follow a procedure, and invent new recipes daily. I work with a unique mixture of clays and mix my own glazes, often turning my back on traditional ceramic practice. Hand building, rather than turning on the wheel, further emphasizes the individuality of each piece.
