Such an exciting day yesterday! A great take-up for this Easter-theme workshop in Poole, where people could make their very own mythical bird hatching from their hand-made clay egg.
The two 3 hour workshops aimed to teach participants hand-building and press-mold techniques, how to join, sculpt and decorate this very exciting material. We used air-drying clay so that people could paint and take home their work on the day.
We had a wonderful range of age groups. Some brought their mums, some brought their kids and some their friends. After a quick introduction to the clay and a demonstration of making and decorating skills, people were able to delve into their ideas with resources and inspiration worksheets.

Everyone developed their personalised idea, and the birds soon began to develop their own characters! As you can see from the images, everyone's piece has it's own identity.
