Clay and pulp makes an excellent material that traditional clay does not facilitate and enables a wider range of creativity. IN the workshop we will make a particular paperclay depending on the project and experience working with this body to learn its characteristics. We will build slab objects and work with casting clay as well as extruding slip and wheel throwing.
