Taking inspiration from Grayson Perry, we will be exploring identity in these sessions with artist Sally Storr. Be shown how to make a thumb or pinch pot in clay – the oldest art of making pots! When you are happy with the shape of your pinch pot you can add colour by brushing it with slip and use a range of tools to draw into the slip surface to create a design that is all about you. This may be where you live, your interests, family etc. Why not try to Pot like Perry! Don’t forget to bring a container or box with you so you can take your personal masterpiece home!
