Description

Paper clay is easy to use and very forgiving.  You can force dry it, work thick to thin, turn it into a tinker toy construction project, or even join bisqued pieces together as a three-dimensional collage.  Cracks and breaks repair easily.  We will have two paper clays to work with; Porcelain paper clay and Newcomb, a high fire stoneware.  So, make a sculpture, hand-build a cup or flower pot, assemble a collage and relax, you can’t go wrong with carefree paperclay. Zoom classes will be augmented by recorded demonstrations and other resource materials. An initial bag of clay will be provided at pick up, as well as some slips.
