Description

Join experienced tutor Cathy Hayward, in a 1.5 hour ONLINE LEARNING workshop online via Zoom.

In this workshop Cathy will demonstrate how to make a ceramic planter and base from start to finish, 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:

  • Rolling pin or wine bottle.
  • Knife– kitchen butter knife would suffice.
  • Bag of clay– We suggest PS2000 terracotta, WEB or RHB.
  • Needle tool- included in the clay kit.
  • Sponge– included in the clay kit.
  • Bucket of water.
  • Cutting wire– Included in the clay kit.
  • Modelling tool–included in clay kit.
  • Rubber Kidney–included in the clay kit.
  • Hole cutter
  • Some newspaper or chux wipes.
  • Plastic sheet or a plastic bag to wrap your work in.
  • Two long square bits of wood that are the same size. (optional)

 

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.

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