We are potters!

We were delighted to have the opportunity to explore pottery in an art lesson all about clay.

Our guest teacher for the day was Finn. He explained all about pottery and clay, the tools we needed to use and how to care for and recycle our clay when we were finished.

He showed us some how to create amazing sculptures using a variety of building and sculpting techniques such as: rolling, pinching, pressing, patting and cutting.

He also explained the importance of making a ‘key’ when joining separate pieces of clay together.

We had such a wonderful day and we even got to take home some clay to practice at home.

Have a look at the fantastic sculptures we created!!
