UCA Art Tutor and artist Emily Rose Parris returned to centre to deliver a Clay Modelling workshop. During her visit the artist gave a short demonstration to the students, showing them how to handle the clay and proposing possible items they could craft.

 

Once the demonstration was over, the students were given a block of clay and were instructed to start kneading the clay to remove some of the moisture and make the clay easier to handle. Once the clay was slightly harder and less sticky, the students began to produce their own artworks. Some made coil pots whilst others made small figures.

 

Each student learnt something new and had the freedom to play with the material. It was a fun workshop enjoyed by all in attendance."
