Clay Making Workshop

Clay Making is the moulding of clay into different shapes by hand. Unlike conventional art such as painting and drawing, Clay Making is much more hands-on. Aside from using your hands to mould the clay, different tools such as utensils and sticks can be used to create intricate patterns on your clay structures, which would otherwise be impossible to do with just your hands!

Types of Clay

Non-Firing Clay, also known as Air-Dry clay, is more commonly used and more suited for Clay Making Workshops. Air-Dry clay, as the name suggests, will harden in the presence of air. After taking a portion of the clay, remember to place the remainder into a air tight bag to prevent it from hardening. Despite the advantages that non-firing clay brings about, it is usually quite fragile even after the clay has completely hardened.

Firing Clay is used more frequently in pottery due to the durability required in the result. Firing Clay feels about the same as Air-Dry clay in terms of texture is mouldable at room temperature and will not harden. The only way to harden firing clay is to heat the clay over a furnace or in a hot environment. The end product is much more durable than that of the Air-Dry clay and is less likely to form cracks in the heating process.
