In this 3-part online workshop series, you will be guided by Kingston Ceramic Studio artist, Christine Yeghyaian to explore the relationship between clay and the senses.
Focusing on sound and touch, this workshop will take you on a walking journey through the natural environment where you will forage for raw materials and create an impression of a found surface in clay. You will learn ceramic techniques, including slab-rolling and sgraffito and use tools and objects from within the home. You will be encouraged to make a sound recording during the walk, which will be used as inspiration in your final build and design. Through this workshop, you will be encouraged and supported to think about ceramic concepts and techniques in a brand-new way.
