Wild clay: Engineering a sustainable and local clay body


Monday to Friday, 29th of August – 2nd of September 2022, 9:00 – 12:00 with Anja Slapničar

„Clay. It’s rain, dead leaves, dust, all my dead ancestors. Stones that have been ground into sand. Mud. The whole cycle of life and death.“ – Martine Vermeulen

What is clay, really? It is a combination of the smallest rock particles and leafy sheets, connected by inner forces and water. It is a plastic material. We can take pure clay minerals and add other materials of different sizes and chemical compositions. We can mix together an infinite range of inorganic matter prepared to suit our needs: plasticity, colour, texture, transparency and so on. And the interesting part of it all is that we can source it all around us, locally and under our feet. We try to be sustainable, unique and local.

In this course, you will learn how to develop your own clay body, fire test samples and make and fire small, test pieces. Materials and firing costs are included in this course.

Course will be held in English
