Make your own ceramic ‘singing’ vessel artefact with Joanne Masding.
Joanne Masding will lead a 1/2 day session to guide you through making your own ‘singing’ vessel artefact. Taking reference from bodily artefacts and ceramic vessels from the Late Nariño period, which are said to have been made to record the importance of singing within a community, as a means of communicating and creating harmony.
Through the session you will explore the bodily language of ceramics, how clay speaks and moves, and explore ways that bodies meet clays. Participants will learn pinching and coiling techniques to make vessel forms and hand sculpting techniques to produce bodily clay pieces with hands, mouths and eyes resulting in your own singing vessel to take home after firing.
This course will cover:
- Pinching and coiling techniques
- Hand sculpting and joining clay

This course is suitable for those with little to no experience of ceramics. All materials and firing costs are included, size restrictions apply.
