You’ll make a series of small functional pots. 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.
