CLAY

Beautiful Spring weather saw us setting out tables under the trees to get our hands dirty and sculpture with clay.

Despite the wind drying out the  clay students did a great job of using slab construction to create a mug/container

.Despite many using clay for the very first time ,everyone had a great time.

Results reflected understanding of how to join clay correctly and the sensitivity of construction when air drying clay..Very pleased with everyone's efforts
