Sheep Class Slippery Ceramics!

Sheep class has been experimenting and learning the vital techniques needed for working with clay. Children were very skilled at using their hands and water to manipulate the clay, and were delighted to learn that even if you make a mistake when using the clay, it doesn’t matter as clay is very forgiving! We practised rolling, twisting, pinching, smoothing and joining, and finished the lesson making a small pinch-pot to take home and decorate when they’re dry. Next time, we will begin to sculpt our clay animal models.
