Kurinuki Clay

Date: Sunday, January 31, 2-3 pm.

Kurinuki is a great clay experience for beginners and can also be satisfying for experienced clay artists. Kurinuki is a traditional method of Japanese handbuilding. The word means “carving out.” A solid block of clay is minimally shaped and then carved to create the interior and exterior spaces. Spontaneous and showing the marks of the making process, kurinuki pots tend to be more alive and sculptural than with some other handbuilding methods. All tools, materials and kiln firing provided. Each supply kit contains enough materials for two or three projects.

Format: Pretaped intro, supply kit and one live Zoom class (a Zoom link will be sent a few days before the first class).

Skill and Age: All levels, but children under 12 may need adult assistance.
