Sooki Studio is happy to announce that we are now offering private group workshops. Do you have a group of friends, colleagues or family members you want to have fun with while doing something creative? This one-day workshop is a playful low stakes learning environment grounded in exploration and letting go of expectations.
Participants can choose between learning pinch pots, coil building or slab building depending on the duration of the workshop. With these techniques you can essentially build anything. Workshops can be geared towards other techniques when specially requested. Groups can choose between clays and glaze colors upon arrival.
No experience is necessary, this workshop will be suited to those who are curious in working with clay for the first time and those with various levels of experience who would like to create in a communal space.
The workshop takes place at Sooki Studio located in Los Angeles, 15 minutes east of Downtown. During the workshop participants can relax, creatively express themselves, and bond with one another. All pieces will be glazed, fired and ready for pick up within 3-weeks of the workshop.
Materials and firing are included and participants can build as many pieces as they'd like within the workshop. A suggested list of everyday items that can be used as tools will be sent to registered participants prior to the commencement of the workshop.
Once your session is booked we will contact you to arrange a date and time. Workshops can take place on the weekends or on weekdays depending on availability. We will work together to find a time that works for all parties.
This workshop is taught by Sooki Studio founder, Natalia Ira Sookias. Natalia has been teaching over the last decade from the kindergarten level ranging to university graduate students in the US, Europe and the Middle East. She studied at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), Central St. Martin's and the Prince's School for Traditional Arts in London.

We encourage everyone to do at home Covid tests prior to the workshop to ensure collective safety. As we're working in a very well ventilated environment, masks are optional. If you are experiencing any Covid like symptoms or have been exposed to someone with Covid, we ask you to please stay home and get in touch so that we can schedule a make-up session.
