You will be working with air drying clay. This is a great product that dries and hardens without the use of a kiln.
Students will learn clay modelling techniques including preparatory sketching, forming an armature, joining clay sections, fine modelling and finishing. A variety of finishes will then be explored to ensure long term preservation of the work.
You will be making a hare ——Trevor will bring lots of examples and pictures for reference as well as lots of advice and encouragement.
