Stretch those upper arms – you’ll be doing a lot of rolling.

Join is an introduction to the basics of building pots with slabs of clay. You’ll learn how to roll out consistent slabs and cut out pieces to assemble pots.  Joining clay is essential to successful slab building so we’ll show you a range of approaches to help keep your pots in one piece.

Slab building involves cutting, folding, bending, draping, wrapping and fixing flat shapes, to make three-dimensional forms. It’s useful to think about slab building through allied processes – think pattern cutting, paper engineering and flat pack furniture. The aim is to envelop/wrap or assemble a form with sheet/flat materials: it is a highly adaptable method of construction.

Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners or anyone wanting to refine existing skills.
