We are located on a small ‘Woonboerderij’ farm in the beautiful Achterhoek. We provide Ceramic/Pottery workshops and courses for children, adults, families, groups of friends and businesses. We pride ourselves in creating a safe and inspirational space to work with the medium clay. "Komt tot rust door het werken met klei". I have been teaching ceramic since 2003 after obtaining my degree in Fine & Applied arts, specialising in Ceramics.

Our Story:

In 2019 we made a drastic move and bought a 'Woonboerderij', a small farm in the beautiful Achterhoek. We opened the doors to Clay Cafe NL: Achterhoek on the 6 Sep 2019. Clay Cafe Nl was first based in Zaandam, Hembrugterrein before our move to the Achterhoek and we have not looked back! But teaching started long before in Mozambique at the American International School of Maputo. Where I gave ceramic classes in school, after school and in the evenings to adults.

Our Vision:

When we bought the farm, we had a vision. Not only to have the Clay Cafe Studio to teach and share our passion for ceramics and fine arts but also to create a creative space for people to come together.

Studio & Gallery:
We renovated a beautiful old barn to become a light and airy space. It had to be functual for creating my own ceramics, and teaching workshops & courses. But also have the wall & floor space to have group and solo exhibitions. We pride ourselves with our collections of art. Two of our artists in our permanent collection have exhibited at the Venice Biennale.

Pottery Retreats: We are currently renovating our -to be guesthouse, so that we will also be able to host art & ceramic ‘pottery’ retreats.

What an adventure this has been! We sure learned a lot about building and renovating this past year.

Exchange Program:
With my own background in Artistic Directing it is not a far jump to understand that we are setting up knowledge exchange programs between the Netherlands and South African Universities, inviting 3rd and 4th year students to visit and stay with us, in this way experiencing a different country and seeing how ceramic studio’s and institutions are setup in the Netherlands and also learn new techniques. If you are interested in this program, please feel free to contact us for more information.

Sculptural Garden:
We have started the landscaping of 7000sqm, by hand sowing wild flowers, that will both breathe new life into the soil and sustain it’s fauna & flora. Within this wildflower pasture we have made a maze for you to explore. In spring/summer 2020 we will start to place and make sculptures that will adorn this space. If you want to contribute to our sculpture garden please reach out to us via email.
