Clay fruit for Cornucopia

All WSPs are welcome to make some clay fruit, seed heads or flowers to fill a Horn of Plenty (Cornucopia ) as a centre piece for the banquet on the final day of Clay Feast.

The Cornucopia is being made by a Tuesday student from clay collected at Chiddingfold.

Non of the work will be fired, but recycled by destroying with water pistols on the final day.

Fruit and seed heads will be left at the pottery as inspiration, please don’t eat the fruit! It’ll be replaced as needed. Various coloured clays will also be provided.

A place will be provided to put the drying pieces. Have a go!
