How to Start Off Using Clay

Check out these tips for beginners

Master the basic techniques of making and decorating clay; without a firm foundation in these basic skills, you will not be able to successfully make what you have in your head.

Be open to learning from others, not always in a formal, teaching session, but also from conversations and sharing experiences with others.

Find a group of people with the same interest; this could be a beginner’s class, a studio membership or taster session.

Don’t become too attached to your early attempts; be willing to discard and try again…and again.

Persevere! It’s an adage, but ‘practice makes perfect’.

Get the basics right before you move on to more ambitious stuff.

Take advice and support from those with more experience than you; you never stop learning!
