BUILD begins by celebrating low-tech, no-fuss - it’s been done for millennia - approaches to making pots by hand. Through demonstrations and practice you’ll become familiar with ancient approaches to forming and constructing pots. You’ll then progress to more recent, albeit still traditional, approaches to manipulating clay. You’ll start and finish pots during each session and then learn how to glaze your own work.

To DROP may feel counter-intuitive, and even sound destructive, when it comes to clay – it can be, but not in this session. We’ll introduce you to drop moulds and show you how to use gravity to shape clay. We’ll show you how to ROLL out consistent slabs of clay and you’ll experiment with roulettes to create a range of textured patterns. You’ll then tease, stretch and tap, to form simple bowls and plates. You’ll also explore how to customise rims.
