06 Nov Making Together: What happened? – Clay
Makers Jon Williams and Joanna Dawidowska led the third set of Making Together workshops at Birmingham Settlement, focusing on clay.
Participants of all ages had the chance to get messy as they explored clay in its different states; wet, slip , leather hard and fired and tried out techniques of coiling, throwing and press moulding. Families had the chance to work individually and collaboratively and it was great to see their growing skills and concentration.
“Who’d have thought you could paint with clay!”
“It is nice to get out of the house and do things.” Participant
“That was great, I really enjoyed it. That was my first time I will get my husband to come back and have a go next week .”
