Nelson Clay Week

Embark on a lively and informative journey into the world of paper clay in this hands-on workshop. Paper clay, a versatile medium formed by adding paper to clay, provides an accessible entry point for beginners and expands creative possibilities for seasoned artists. Gain insights into its diverse applications as it becomes increasingly popular in studios and classrooms worldwide, constituting a significant portion of clay use. Learn essential techniques such as joining dry to wet, wet to dry, and dry to dry paper clay, unlocking the creative freedom to craft, alter, and repair artwork, even when fully dry.

Graham Hay grew up on a Canterbury high country farm with dirt under his fingernails and a family travel gene. Infected with the clay bug at high school, he studied it at Dunedin Teachers Collage, then majoring in it at both Edith Cowan and Curtin Universities.

His overseas travel became habitual: while based in Western Australia, Graham has led paper clay workshops, symposiums and conferences across 14 countries and exhibited in 16 countries (including seven biennales).

He has been invited to write on paper clay for ceramics journals in nine countries, and features in 22 textbooks. A leader in the quiet paper clay revolution, Graham regularly teaches paper clay techniques within community groups, schools and his Perth studio in Western Australia.
