Event description
A workshop making terracotta clay sculptures with ceramic artist Michelle Shields, for young people age 7+

About this Event

Led by designer and ceramicist Michelle Shields, the workshop will take direct inspiration from the exhibition Hand Held to Super Scale: Building with Ceramics.

Using terracotta clay Michelle will show how to roll, pinch, coil and extrude to make a clay sculpture.

There will also be an opportunity to learn more generally about ceramics and Michelle’s research into digital ceramics, which includes a demonstration of the robotic arm in action!

All materials for the workshop will be provided. Please note that the clay sculptures will be fired off-site and ready for pick-up at the Building Centre ~3 weeks.

The workshop is for ages 7+.

About Michelle Shields

Michelle attended the Royal College of Art, London and has exhibited internationally, her work held in public and private collections. Presently Michelle is working at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham (UCA) in the Ceramics & Glass department. She is fascinated by the transformative materiality of clay, an abundant and easily extracted natural resource on our planet. Her process based, creative practice is informed by ancient and digital making methods, the latter offering new ways of working that are not in competition with traditional techniques of making but extend the possibilities of innovation with Ceramics.

Michelle’s current research project ‘Soft Developables’, carried-out in collaboration with designer Heleen Sintobin and digital fabrication lab Grymsdyke Farm, is featured in our Hand Held to Super Scale exhibition as an example of contemporary practice and innovation in ceramic process.
