Primary 5 Clay Workshops

2nd Mar 2016

Primary 5 have now finished their three pottery workshops at the Island Arts Centre. They worked in the pottery studio and used modeling tools, rolling pins, clay boards and some even got a chance to use the pottery wheel! They learned about the process of firing clay in a kiln and using glazes to add colour. All of the children made a number of items including their own clay tile which they imprinted with natural materials – lavender, twigs, leaves and flowers. These were fired in the kiln and then painted in watercolour and look fabulous on display in the school. The children also had the chance to explore the sculptures and ceramic installations on display both in and around the ground of the Arts Centre. Many thanks to Mrs Gorman for her expertise during the workshops.
