If you’ve never tried making with clay before I can highly recommend it. I am of course extremely biased in my view as I thoroughly enjoy working with clay but it is a great way to make your imagination come to life! Clay is a very malleable medium with an innate strength that means you can make some wonderful pieces with a few techniques and a bit of skill.
There are three basic handbuilding methods that I teach in the first three weeks of the classe. From this basis we then develop and combine the techniques so that students can make what they want and they are surprised how quickly they can make wonderful things. Just have a look at the pictures in the students work album in the gallery to see a few of the pieces made in the first couple of terms – They are fabulous if I do say so myself 🙂
