Making a clay basket

Making a clay basket

This workshop is all about making a clay basket and using coils. I love this workshop as it starts to look at using coils in a different way to the traditional coiling method. I love the versatility of coiling once you start thinking beyond the simple round shapes we start by learning.

The video includes step by step instructions along with hints and tips about things to consider as you build. As a celebration of Spring and an adornment for the basket there is also instructions on how to make a simple flower decoration.

For this workshop you will need:

  • clay (rolled into coils)
  • slip
  • rolling pin
  • knife
  • cutters for flower petals

If you have any questions as you go through the videos you can contact me (by email or Facebook messenger) and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can in office hours with an answer.

Had a fabulous one-off group lesson with Paula, thank you 😀
