Clay Intensive: Introduction to Handbuilding

Our short clay intensives are suitable for absolute beginners – no previous experience necessary.
This session covers a range of core handbuilding techniques and processes. In two hours you’ll learn how to build three pots using three construction methods.
You’ll learn how to manipulate soft and firm clay; you’ll develop an understanding of how to adapt techniques and processes in response to different consistencies of clay; and explore different methods of moulding, assembling and constructing pots. It’ll be fast and fun.
