This resource is made available as a free download in order to support teachers who are working with clay. This resource represents the equipment used to make any of the B&M Potterycrafts projects currently available via this website. They are the simple style of tools which we have found safe and practical in all our years working in schools and with groups of adults and children with special educational needs. The tools and work surfaces suggested are a one off purchase for an individual or a class and then become a practical school resource for use by any class. Enjoy your clay modelling.

3D art, pottery, ceramics, clay models, Five pages. All our pottery figures were developed over the years and have been used to introduce basic clay modelling skills to school children of all ages. The figures are built up from simple shapes to which the students can relate. Each one of our projects is demonstrated step by step as you work through the text, this is the technique we developed and found most effective over the years, and the objective of each step of the project is shown in the still photos. The step by step approach allows teachers to control the pace of the exercise, helping slower pupils at each stage and handing out the next piece of clay when all the pupils are ready. The most important sheet in each project is the ‘Worksheet’ which contains the weight of clay and the templates required to ensure the correct proportions of the models. Each project has an element of decision making and measurement built into the worksheet with self-expression encouraged in the decoration and design details applied to each model which becomes an individual creation.

3D art, pottery, ceramics, clay models, Seven pages of detailed clay modelling instructions, supported by still photos leading you step by step to making the figure shown on the cover. Including a project sheet with clay weights and templates. Simple basic shapes are used as building blocks in the creation of each model. Models have been developed over years of teaching practical, hands-on pottery to school children, adults and students with special educational needs. Basic pottery skills are embodied in the designs and the upright nature of the figures leads to self-expression from students who can decorate the figures as imaginary people, adding hats, aprons scarves and even sport shirts. Enjoy your clay modelling. Brian.
