Learn the fundamentals of slab, coil, and pinch pot hand-building techniques to create a clay mask. Starting with the slab building technique, students will explore methods for adding volume, and creating surface texture. Connect to your social studies, science and visual arts curriculums as students learn about different types of masks from around the world, what they were made from, and how they were used, and get inspired to create their own unique design.

Ceramic pieces will be kiln fired, and ready for pick-up in three weeks after your booking. Please also note that our administration team will contact  the booking teacher regarding scheduling a date and time for ceramic pick-ups. After kiln firing, pieces can be painted with acrylic or watercolour paints in your school classroom.
