Event description

Description

Handmade clay roulettes

To DROP may feel counter-intuitive, and even sound destructive, when it comes to clay – it can be, but not in this session. We’ll introduce you to drop moulds and show you how to use gravity to shape clay. We’ll show you how to ROLL out consistent slabs of clay and you’ll experiment with roulettes to create a range of textured patterns. You’ll then tease, stretch and tap, to form simple bowls and plates. You’ll also explore how to customise rims.

Drop moulds are an alternative to plaster moulds. They are easy to make with basic tools, do not require specialist mould-making skills, light, easy to store and can be recycled – great for beginners and those concerned with sustainable practices. Roulettes are cylindrical stamps that are rolled into the surface of clay to make a repeated mark.

Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners and anyone wanting to refine existing skills.
