Description

Join our current guest artist in residence Madeleine Thornton-Smith in a 1.5 hour handbuilding workshop online via zoom.

In this session Madeleine will demonstrate two different handbuilding methods to make a berry strainer and bowl, using our Pottery Starter Kit and a few basic household items.

This workshop is suitable for beginners, and anybody with a reliable internet connection.

Things you will need:

  • Bag of clay– We suggest PS3010 stoneware clay or RHB included in our clay kit.
  • Needle tool- included in the clay kit.
  • Sponge– included in the clay kit.
  • Knife
  • Bucket of water.
  • Cutting wire– Included in the clay kit.
  • Modelling toolincluded in clay kit.
  • Rubber Kidneyincluded in the clay kit.
  • Hole cutter
  • Some newspaper or chux wipes.
  • Plastic sheet or a plastic bag to wrap your work in.

Working Area:

  • You can work on a wooden board such as an old chopping board, or wooden table is ideal to work on. Avoid a sticky surface such as Laminex or glass as the clay will stick to this.

If you are worried about working on a nice surface, you can always lay down some canvas, calico or an old cotton sheet or table cloth.

Ahead of the class, make some joining slip

To do this, take a small chunk of clay, place it in a jar or container, add some water and if you have it, some white vinegar and give it a stir with your modelling tool.  You have now made a basic SLIP which is used for joining.  Madelaine will show you how to use this during the demonstration.

This workshop will run on Saturday 24th October 2.00-3.30

Participants will be sent a link to the zoom meeting a day prior to the class.

This workshop is being held as part of the Craft Contemporary Festival.
