Special event for Towersey residents - Make a clay animal with James Ort

GET FIRED UP AT THE PHOENIX STUDIO

A special event supported by TOWCAP (Towersey Community Arts Project)

Smiley JamesMake a Clay Animal evening with James Ort – 17th June 2016, 7.00 – 10pm.

Spend an evening learning how to make a clay animal with James Ort. He will share a clay modelling technique which is easy to learn and brings life, energy and grace to the creations.

This time you’ll be making the seated or reclined animal of your choice – your own dog or cat, perhaps, or something more exotic!

Once first-fired, you’ll return around a week later to glaze your creation. This will be fired again, and then will be yours to cherish.
