Unearth the potential of wild clay and sculpt your connection to the natural environment. I will be guiding and facilitating through this course I will show you how to find clay how to gather and test it and will share my own knowledge and experience of working with foraged materials. Foraged clay can act differently in the kiln, cracks and explosions are more frequent than with bought clays and part of the experience will include trial and error. This course may not end with a perfect piece of work, but you will experience working with an earth substance that connects us to the land and the world of materials that surrounds us. This course welcomes beginners with open arms, yet it's ideally suited for those with a prior touch of clay. Whether you're new to pottery or seeking to deepen your understanding, join us as we delve into the rich tapestry of earthy creations and uncover the magic hidden within the land.
