When using slab to make pottery, Fiona Jack enjoys thinking about the outcome being somewhat shaped by the process. The slab is rolled by hand, in a way that suits the projects in mind. Then almost all the slab is purposed into projects, minimising the amount of clay slab that has to go in the recycling bucket.

Fiona will demonstrate this hand building process through making a round bottle, a square bottle, some cups, and additional items from the scrap clay. Participants will then make their own versions following the demonstration.

If possible, attendees should bring a basic pottery tool kit (sponge, cutting wire, wooden knife, wooden shark fin rib, steel rib, needle tool and trimming tools) and an old bank card.

This workshop is suitable for all levels. Bisque firing of finished pieces can be arranged for an additional cost. Details will be available at the workshop.
