Can you work with a slab?
First, roll out the slab. Then roll out coils of clay.
Use ‘slip’ to attach the coils to the slab. (Slip is a mixture of clay and water
that is used to join pieces of clay together)
You can texture the slabs too.
You can also build pots using slabs of clay. Join your slab firmly to the base, making sure the join is invisible. Have fun decorating your pot!
You can build with slabs. Score along the base of each ‘wall’ with a clay tool, pencil or stick.
Brush “slip” along the edge you have scored.
Join each side carefully, making sure the joins are invisible.
What could you use to make designs in the clay?
