Wild Clay Wednesdays
Updated: Jul 17, 2019
My summer workshops are about to begin! Join me at Stover Country Park for 'Wild Clay Wednesdays'. During these fun nature-based sessions we will follow the hidden clues and traces to seek-out and discover deposits of Ball Clay. Then we will use hand tools to dig quantities of the clay and make art on site from the earth itself. Emphasis will be placed on clay's transformative qualities. As a material clay is tactile - it appeals to the senses, these qualities become more distinct when outside in nature. We will learn how Ball Clay came into existence and what makes it so special. Participants may choose to create ephemeral artworks which disintegrate slowly back into the earth. Alternatively, they may take their work home with them, as a lasting momento of their wild clay encounter.
Come and join me - the clay is calling!
