About this Event
Enjoy a hands on class where you will create paper clay sculptures with like-minded people!
Suitable for absolute beginners, teachers, through to the most experienced clay user. Learning from a local international expert, in a fun and hands-on way. Remember to wear old-comfortable clothes, as you may get messy being creative!
During the class you will learn new and centuries old clay techniques that you will use to create paper clay sculptures. You will master the technique and develop a personal, creative style, which you can then apply when making pottery and sculpture.
High quality instruction is provided by tertiary trained tutor Graham Hay, an internationally recognised ceramic artist and expert in teaching paper clay. He has over two decades in experience teaching ceramics to both absolute beginners and experienced students across a dozen countries. See his website for details.
You will enjoy a fun, hands on, day of making, experimenting, with like-minded people and gain a real insight into the thinking, processes and studio practice of an artist. Gain new knowledge, skills, and confidence and take home one or two creations of your own.
You will create and keep one or two paper clay creations made by you. Additional paper clay will be avaliable to take home and use. Free parking, tea and coffee.
Please wear covered shoes and an old shirt, plus bring a hand towel and box to take home your creations. Only if you have them do bring; an old newspaper, ice cream or takeaway container with lid, clay tools or spare kitchen utilities (e.g. garlic crusher, apple corer, different sized bowls).
