Play Start Clay Studio


with Hannah West

Calendar Oct 21, 2017 at 9:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

In this series we will be getting to know clay through exploration. Discover what clay is, where it comes from and how we can create with it. We will experiment with materials to create imprints in the clay and create relief by carving with different tools. Our hands are amazing tools, so we will use them to explore the clay and build pinch pots.
