I took myself out on a little date this weekend and had the best time. I have been wanting to try the painting school at Royal Copenhagen for so long, but every time they have announced new dates, I have had no luck getting a seat. Finally I succeeded! And I loved it.

This post is NOT sponsored by Royal Copenhagen (although maybe it should be ;)), I am just a happy customer wanting to share a good experience with you. As this was not meant for the blog, I didn’t bring my camera. So you will have to make do with my iPhone pictures.

At the painting school you can choose to paint either blue fluted mega plate or cup – I chose the first one. This is the plate, I painted. I had never tried painting on porcelain before, but I loved it! And I was actually quite good at it! Steady hands I tell you. I was fast too, faster than everyone else – in fact the first thing the teacher said to me was “You’ve done this before I see”. I hadn’t – but I could have kept going. It was my first try, so it won’t look as good as the ‘real’ ones – but that’s alright. This is my special one, signed by me.

Caught in the act. I don’t make many appereances around here – but I’ll make an exception. Hello :)

We were about 15 people in the class, and Mette, our sweet teacher who has been painting plates for the last 15 years, showed us every step of the way. There are also photocopies of the plate on the table to look at while painting and the plate has little pencil marks and dots to help you in the right direction.

All that is left now is to burn the plate. In about three weeks, I can pick it up. I can’t wait to see the finished result. I will show you, when it arrives.

If you want to try your hand at painting royal porcelain, keep an eye on dates right here. They sell out fast, so make sure to book as soon as they come up with new dates.

Last but not least; Check out some serious lamp and ceiling love at the Royal Copenhagen Flagship Store. I mean wow!

    Great job with the plate! It even looks kind of professional! I doubt anyone would have guessed it was your first piece. The combination of colours and style reminds me of a Swedish brand I’ve come across. They’re called Rörstrand, and their crockery has that same beautiful Nordic-style feel to it. How come it takes three weeks to get the plate? I would suppose that once it’s burned, it’s ready to be used? I am curious, since I will be attending a folkhögskola in Sweden the next semester, and I am thinking about taking up ceramics as a part of my arts programme. Please, post the picture once your creation arrives, I’m curious!
