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

  • 69 British pounds
  • Dalston Clay

WHAT TO EXPECT

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!  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. Price includes firing and glazing of one piece.  We can glaze for you in satin white or clear (if you have pre-coated with slip or underglaze), or you can return to glaze at a Glazing Tutorial. ​ What's included: - Instruction for all skill levels - Paper clay - One fired and glazed piece to collect after one month. (additional pieces can be fired for £5-£20 size dependant) - Tea and coffee, good music, friendly community vibes.
