Beginners Clay Hand Building Video Set

£45.00

During this online beginners’ clay hand building video course I introduce you to clay and teach you the basics of hand building in a series of videos. During the course you will learn all the basics of working with clay as well as the three main clay hand building techniques – pinch pots, slab building and coiling. Each video is a step by step demonstration of making, using a particular technique with hints, tips and explanations of how and why we do certain things when making. You learn what you need to watch for, and some ways to bring a make back, when something goes wrong.

Course Details :-
  • Online Course
  • Over 2 hours of video

If you have any questions as you go through the videos you can contact me (by email or Facebook Messenger) and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can in office hours with an answer. You will need your own clay and tools for this course. You can find much of the tools you need by repurposing items from home but if you would like to buy pottery tools I would suggest the following as a basic kit:

  • a set of wooden modelling tools
  • a knife (potters)
  • a rubber kidney
  • a paint brush (around size 8)
  • a wooden rolling pin
  • an untreated wooden board
  • a sponge
  • a clay cutter is useful but not essential
You can also add a whirler/turntable, texture/pattern stamps or rollers and a hole cutter too. In the UK you can find all of these tools online from a wide range of suppliers. I get most of my supplies from www.potterycrafts.co.uk and will have beginners course packs available from them soon, so you can purchase everything you need in one place.

What's included in the price

The price includes a series of videos covering an introduction to making with clay, wedging up, making slip, rolling a coil, making pinch pots, how to slab build and how to coil.
