How to Create a Clay Jug with Sculpd

A fun & easy video tutorial from our favourite pottery friends.



Last month our friends at Sculpd hosted a wonderful online workshop to help us discover the de-stressing benefits of pottery. Featuring the hands of their resident potter, we’ve got their how-to tutorial here to share with you so you can have a try at home.

Sketch out your design in a notebook, follow the video guide and, once dry, paint your jug if you like. It makes a lovely home for blooms, decorative piece for your desk or a surprise for someone you love.

To get started, you’ll need to purchase the Sculpd Pottery Kit here. The rest, as you'll see, is quite simple.

Here come the steps...

~ Sketch out your design

~ Press your thumb into a ball of clay

~ Roll into a cone shape

~ Pinch to hollow out

~ Swipe to create a spout

~ Roll out a sausage shape for the handle

~ Flatten

~ Trim handle to size

~ Score your pot & add handle to finish

P.S. We’d love to see your creations. Share a snap of your finished jug on Instagram and tag us @sculpdit @papier.
