Clay Making Workshop with artist Holly Macdonald
Enjoy exploring mark making in clay with ceramic artist Holly Macdonald and create your own unique vessel.
Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to explore the different marks, textures and patterns one can make in clay using the hands and body only. Starting with everyday actions we do with our hands (scrolling, typing etc) and the impressions they make when applied to clay, these gestures will be used to develop textured clay slabs, which we will use to construct vessels.
Each participant will produce a medium-sized slab-built vessel animated with their own gestural fingerprints and a greater sense of the relationship with their hands and body’s movements working instinctively with the clay.
Each participant’s work will be taken away to be fired and returned to MRAG for collection.
