Adults Play with Clay Beginners Handbuilding & Animal Sculpture Sunday 23rd June 2019 11am - 4pm
Beginners Clay Hand-building basic animal sculpture Workshop
On this workshop we will learn about slab rolling and how to make a small square dish by using tile cutters to cut your shape and embedding a pattern before laying it over a mould.
We shall also be learning how to make a double pinch pot before going on to choose an animal you want to shape it into, learning how to attach features to bring it to life.
When finished the pots take around 2 weeks to dry out before firing- this does depend on the thickness of the clay. The cost of this first firing is included in the course price.
You are then invited to return to paint it in glazes in our special Paint a Pot ‘ Happy Potter Studio’ for a discounted fee of £4 to glaze your objects in under glazes.
Alternatively you can simply take it home and paint with acrylic paints and varnish.
Once you have completed this course you can also consider it the training needed to be able to attend our Open Access Clay studio which currently operates on a Friday afternoon.
Please bring with you a packed lunch for a short lunch break. Tea and coffee are included.
