Slab ware is a terrific way to make clay forms. The clay is rolled flat and allowed to stiffen just enough so it can be cut and formed into shapes and assembled using slurry and sponges.
In this three-hour workshop participants will be amazed at the 3D forms such as vases and vessels that can be constructed. For example, many 1950s vases were constructed using this technique.
Tutors will be on hand to help you design your concept, however the technique is quite simple. As long as the pieces are joined well, you will be amazed how easily you can design and assemble your slab ware.
The pieces will be coloured or textured prior to assemblage to provide a unique piece for your home. Works will be fired and clear glazed and ready to collect three weeks after the workshop.
Note: the studio is four blocks from Parramatta Station. There is free street parking out front on Sundays.
