Ceramics Taster: Pinch
16 May @ 10:45 - 13:00£40
Pinch a pot of perfect poise.
PINCH is a great introduction to the working stages of clay. You’ll work on a number of small bowls and a bottle and consider the placement of your fingers, thumbs and hands to control form and surface. You’ll develop an awareness of how clay changes from plastic to leather hard and begin to adapt your crafting sensibilities to work with the material’s characteristics. In addition to pinching, you’ll also explore approaches to developing surfaces through pressing, carving and beating.
Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners or anyone wanting to refine existing skills.
- Post production costs: firings and glazing service.
