One&Only Reethi Rah’s resident artist will be holding object-based classes on ceramics, stained glass, Venetian mask decoration, miniature sculpture, cold porcelain floristics, jewellry, quiling and scrap-book making. These decorative art classes will focus on the stylish, historical and theoretical contexts of the various art forms including design, ranging from the Renaissance to the present, as well as authentic Maldivian culture.
Pottery classes are also available and focused on wheel-thrown pottery. This technique gives you time and practice to be creative using clay and its related decorating materials. Everyone will be involved hands-on and guided in practical project works covering a range of making and surface decorating techniques to reach an understanding of how to plan, make and decorate clay work creatively and successfully. You will decorate clay surfaces using various decorative techniques.
