Clay with May

CLAY WITH MAY: Picture by Rebecca Grunwell

A SIX-week “hand building with clay” course is now available under Gisborne potter Seymour May. The technique involves working with clay with simple tools rather than the pottery wheel.

“Hand building is a great way to learn about clay and its properties, and you’ll learn techniques you can continue to develop at home,” says May.

“Each week you’ll create something new.”

The six-week evening course will be held at Lysnar House every Monday evening from August 21-September 25. Cost: $160 — includes tools, clay and firing.
