About Natalia Ira Sookias

Sooki Studio is part making space, part educational space run by Armenian artist & educator Natalia Ira Sookias. Her ceramics are a vehicle to both connect with her ancestors and create good quality goods for her community. Sooki Studio aims to provide access to ceramics as a means to support mental wellness and foster community. Natalia has been teaching over the last decade from the kindergarten level to university graduate students in the US, Europe, and Middle East.


In this workshop participants will learn how to hand build with terracotta clay to make planters. Participants will learn how to work with slabs and coil build in order to create planters in endless forms and varied sizes. This hand building ceramics workshop will be a playful low stakes learning environment grounded in exploration and letting go of expectations. 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.

What's included

  • All materials and tools will be provided and participants can build as many pieces as they'd like within the two hour period.
  • We will be working with unglazed terracotta clay that can be used for anything except eating or drinking.
  • This workshop will take place at Sooki Studio located in East Los Angeles. All pieces will be fired at Sooki Studio and ready for pick up within 3-weeks of the workshop.
