Yaara lives and works in Tel Aviv. Her work is inspired by her daily experiences in south Tel Aviv, which she translates into two- and three-dimensional art. Her plate collection features everyday elements striking a balance between the ordinary and the sacred, ‘being’ and ‘purpose.’ Yaara’s wabi-sabi plates emulate art created through a ceremony or ritual exalting nature and are distinct for their ‘imperfect perfection.’
Yaara graduated in 2009 with an Award of Excellence from the HaMidrasha College of Art. She has participated in multiple exhibitions in Israel and abroad. Her art has been featured in several large collections, including the Leumi Bank Collection and the Musée de l’Élysée in Switzerland.
Yaara teaches a two-session workshop that includes a demonstration and a practical lesson in preparing and painting ceramic plates. In the workshop, you will work with pressure molds and clay surfaces, as well as various drawing tools for adding lines, colors, and engravings.
* Single class session will include painting only on pre-made ceramic plates.
This workshop is suitable for participants of all skill levels.
You will create one or two hand-painted plates, which will be mailed to you two months from the date of the workshop.

Malka grew up on Moshav Me’or Modi’im, the daughter of parents who immigrated from the U.S. to Israel.
Art has always been an inseparable part of her life. She has been doing ceramics since age 5, influenced by tribal art and Hebrew texts from Jewish literature.
Malka is a multi-disciplinary creative artist. She creates ceramic pendants for jewelry, ceramic vessels, paintings and tiles inspired by tribal themes of all kinds, with a deep connection to a vibrant, colorful Judaism. In addition, she deals with the film documentation of life stories of very colorful people.
Malka offers workshops in the field of ceramics that combine watching movies and sharing personal stories of ourselves and of people who influenced us. The purpose of the workshop is to strengthen our belief in ourselves as creators of vessels of light and color. The creative space opens the channels of dialogue and the sharing of personal stories and journeys. In this way, the creators give each other inspiration that enters into the vessels and is expressed in their works.
The workshops can be one-session or two-session. (Each session is 3 hours.)
A one-session workshop can be a choice of:
1. Creating a planter (tassel method)
2. Painting a ready-made vessel (pomegranates, hamsa or mezuzah cases) using a special painting method taught in the workshop.
3. Preparation of vessels from a combination of several clay colors.
4. Individual tile painting 20/20 CM
A two-session workshop can be a choice of:
1. Preparing an oil-diffusing burner on the theme of “my personal home – a vessel for my light”.
2. Making your own personal mug.
3. Preparation of a vessel according to the participant’s desire.
Malka’s home in Ein Kerem- a magical village/neighborhood of Jerusalem.
