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
~ Trim handle to size
~ Score your pot & add handle to finish
