Discover the use of paper clay as an exciting sculptural ceramic medium 


2.5hr. £69

This session is guided by contemporary artist and founder of Dalston Clay Barnaby Hosking whose primary medium is paper clay; a relatively recent ceramic medium that opens up a whole new world of possibilities in clay construction and form far beyond the limitations of regular clay:  Force dry, add wet to dry, break apart, rebuild, carve and sand, build higher, thicker, stronger and lighter! 

Price includes firing and glazing of one piece. 

You will learn...


  • How to make and use paperclay 

  • Its many advantages for sculptural work

  • Its use for figurative and abstract work 

  • How to realise your project: Bring your own ideas or gain inspiration from the studio

  • Surface treatment: Introductions to Terra Sigillata, Raku firing and Glaze.
