Studio Masterclass: Blending Clay / 30th June
This is a full-day masterclass held at my studio in Margate, UK.
Over the course of the day, you will learn how to devise and blend your own clay bodies and how to use them to produce a range of tones, textures and handling characteristics.
After an introduction to the studio and my practice, you will learn about the material qualities of clay bodies and explore the key principles of blending different clay types before preparing a range of sample blends to use during the afternoon.
In the second half of the class there will be demonstrations of the throwing techniques behind a selection of my forms, and you will spend the afternoon at the wheel, creating test pieces, exploring the throwing qualities of the blended clays prepared in the earlier session.
All equipment and materials will be supplied and firing can be arranged for work made during the class.
Please note that some throwing experience is necessary.
Lunch will be provided.
There are only two places available for each day.
Further details on location and directions will be provided after booking.
