When you think about pottery, you probably think about searing hot ovens, large spinning wheels, and a variety of other complicated tools that most people don’t have easy access to. Contrary to what you might think, it is actually possible to create stunning pieces of pottery from the comfort of your home without using any complicated tools or firing ovens!
We at Artezaar.com are conducting online Zoom pottery workshops where we teach you how to handcraft pieces of pottery using air-dry clay! As the name suggests, air-dry clay will be set simply by being exposed to air for a few hours. This means that once you are finished making a piece, you do not need to fire it in an oven. You simply leave it alone for a day or two and it will set on its own. What’s great about Air dry clay is that it is easily available in any supermarket or crafts store near you and is fairly cheap. You can then paint these to become beautiful pieces on their own.
Our expert teacher will demonstrate through Zoom how to mold and shape the air dried clay to create a variety of stunning pieces such as pots, vases, sculptures, ornaments, jewelry and much more! You will learn all of the basic pottery techniques such as how to make coils, pinch pots, scoring and slipping to bind two pieces of clay together and much more! Once your creation is finished and dry, you can make it pop by painting on top of it using basic acrylic paints in colors of your choice!
Our teacher will also guide you on how to properly store and maintain your clay supply so that it doesn’t dry out before you can use it. You will be guided through each and every step and will also be able to put forward any doubts that you have and our teacher will be happy to help you. At the end of each 1-hour class, you will be left with a stunning piece of pottery that you can display in your home! We teach kids of all ages as well as adults!
There are multiple benefits to creating pottery. Because of the tactile nature of pottery, it’s great for helping children develop fine motor skills. The focus required to shape the clay in the right way helps to stimulate the brain and improve your thinking skills. Indeed, any form of art encourages creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. These are crucial life skills that are important for both adults and children. Moreover, the process of molding and shaping the clay can be very soothing and entertaining, so creating pottery is also a great way to help you unwind from a stressful day at work!
