Clay Modelling Workshop
Clay Modelling is a popular medium among educators because of its texture and elasticity where mistakes are fixable. This gives the students a sense of empowerment as they learn that no action is truly as big of a blip as it feels, and can actually be used to build upon their creative process. They learn to convert their anxious feelings into positive energy.
Paper clay produced by pottery clay manufacturers is a clay body to which a small percentage of processed cellulose fiber has been added. When kiln-fired, the paper burns out, leaving the clay body. Consequently, the firing temperatures and glazes selection should be the same on those used with the clay body.
Clays are water-based substances made from clay minerals and other raw materials.They are baked at high temperatures in a process known as firing to create ceramics, such as terra cotta, earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain.
In this Clay Modelling workshop we made different organic shapes by using inspiration from flora and fauna, animals and insects to understand the sculpting and material handling technique.
Students worked with sculpting tools, texture on the surface, understanding of basic propositions and shape and History of terracotta.
