Learn how to make a small Kurinuki vase - 29th September - 10am-1pm
In this workshop you'll be taught how to create a small vase using the 'Kurinuki' method, a technique that employs carving out a solid block of clay to obtain an interior space.
It is said the process can create a real sense of calm.
The day will start with Kate explaining the technique of Kurinuki and getting you familiar with your tools and clay. After Kate has demonstrated how to carve out your block of clay, you will start having a go yourself, carefully carving the interior of the block and then starting work on the exterior as the day progresses. The vase will be ready at the end of the session for Kate to take home to fire and glaze in her kiln. The final pieces will be available to collect from Water Lane two weeks after the workshop has ended.
(Please note, in rare instances, pottery can 'explode' in the kiln.)
All tools and materials will be supplied, but please bring your own apron.
