Join Jenny Rae during Intro to Hand Building where you will learn and develop hand building skills whilst creating two forms - a coiled pot which can become a lamp base, lidded jar or planter, and a geometric form created from slabs of clay. The course will be split into two halves, one for each piece that you will create.
During the first half we will use coil building techniques to create an enclosed form, around 25cm tall (or taller if you wish!) which can become the base of a table lamp, a lidded vessel or a planter. During the second half, using paper templates made by yourself, you will use slab building techniques to create a geometric vessel.
Block 1 - Thursdays from 09/06/22 - 14/07/22 between 13:00 - 15:00
Project 1 - Coiled Pots
Week 1 - Coiling techniques demonstration. Begin coiling vessel.
Week 2 - Complete construction of your vessel using paddling techniques to refine its shape. Decide on the function of your vessel.
Week 3 - Demonstration of surface decorating techniques and using this information to decorate your vessel.
Project 2 - Slab Built Forms
Week 4 - Demonstration of how to roll out slabs, learning how to determine when slabs are ready to be used, as well as how to care for, store and dry slabs.
Week 5 - Creating templates and constructing geometric forms.
Week 6 - Finalise construction of slab built piece and prepare surface for decoration. Demonstration of surface decorating techniques and using this information to decorate your vessel.
