How long has it been since you have touched cold, moist clay? The tactile experience of working with clay is quite powerful. When I show you some simple techniques the process of handling and manipulating clay is so much fun.
In this session,
- LEARN 3 techniques – Pinch, Slab and Coil. I will show you actual examples of simple (and tasteful) hand-made objects and vessels (and demonstrate how they were made) then let you decide what you would like to create.
- PLAY with the clay as you practise and build one or more pieces. I will be there to support you every step of the way.
- RELAX as you become fully engrossed in the making process. Working with clay has a way of completely diverting your attention away for your ‘everyday life’ which in turn gives you a break from your usual thinking.
We will be using ‘Paperclay’, a smooth white clay that is extraordinarily easy to work with, when you understand its basic properties. Your pieces will need to fired (cooked) in a professional Kiln when they are dry if you want them to be permanently waterproof. This will be your responsibility (and at your own expense – approx. $10.00 per kg), however I will provide you with a list of places where they offer this service in Brisbane.
Complete beginners are welcome while those with some clay knowledge will be given the freedom to create more advanced pieces
