Two university ambassadors visited Southwood KS4 to deliver a clay modelling workshop, in Dover. During the first session, students were introduced to clay moulding techniques and were encouraged to play and re-shape the clay into a form of their choice. During the second session, students were instructed to decorate their clay artwork, using clay slip and acrylic paints.
Although many of our students have used clay before, it was a rare opportunity to be allowed to work so freely with the materials and refreshing for them to be told that it did not matter if they did not make a finished outcome. The students responded well to this and the artworks they produced are varied in theme and decorative.'
