Kurinuki workshop - Japanese hand building


Tile Making

TUTOR Kevin Andrew Morris

10am - 5pm

Kurinuki is a form of hand building which originates in Japan. Kurinuki or ‘Carving out ‘involves using a block of clay and carving the exterior form and hollowing out the interior searching for a form. Kurinuki is an instinctual and sculptural way of working with clay to make functional ware, allowing the form to evolve and reveal its self during the making process. Over the session you will be able to make two pots finishing with coloured slips.

This class is is for current Forgan Arts students and those who attend ceramics classes elsewhere.
