First after school Art and Pottery Classes @Hags Pottery

Children began by learning how to prepare or ‘wedge’ the clay, and made simple pinch pots, formed into the shape of their choice. We then experimented with pressing found, natural and man made objects into the clay […]

Character Clay Portraits

Continuting with our themes of modelling (see Firebird project by clicking here) and portraiture we took several weeks to complete masks, made from air dry clay and decorated with poster paint. The children were given the technical skills to attach noses, eyes, hair and lips to create a portrait of their characters.  Most of them […]
