A clay get-together with friends, or family - in person in our studio in Dublin
Get together with a bunch of great friends, or your favourite work-pals and discover the age-old skill of working with clay.
Coil, slab, pinch, build and sculpt – there is so much you can do with clay!
This workshop is a great introduction to working with clay using handbuilding techniques, and you will be amazed at what you can make during this 2-hour workshop. Handbuilding is a pottery technique that allows you to create forms with clay, without using a throwing wheel. All you need to get started is clay, tools, your hands and enthusiasm. We’ll supply the clay and tools – you bring your hands and enthusiasm!
During the class you will learn how to make pottery pieces at your workstation, through coiling, slabbing, pinching, building, or sculpting methods. One of our experienced teachers will guide you through the process, sharing some basic skills with you.
You will make a few different little pots during the day, which you are welcome to bring home to airdry if you like. Please bring your own wrapping (bubble wrap, tissue paper, small carboard box, etc) if you would like to do this. Please note these pieces can be used for display only and are not watertight.
You can always recycle the clay in these pieces if you want to make something else or use our At Home Clay Kit if you would like to practice what you have learnt and learn some more projects too.
We can tailor this workshop to suit your group size, time constraints, and experience levels.
You will get your hands dirty and create a piece of pottery which you can take home with you on the day. It will airdry within a few weeks.
