Back in May my friend Catina and I did a ceramic workshop at Clay Collective in Hackney. After getting slightly lost we eventually found our way to the workshop, under the arches of Hackney Downs. We were given a quick demo of how to work with clay and the various techniques we could explore. After getting used to the feel of the clay, off I went. I made 3 items which were all bowls (the simplest thing to make) 

It was such a relaxing Sunday, using my hands and getting messy with the clay and the paint. As somebody who is mostly gripping a mouse behind a screen it was a breath of fresh air.

Clay Collective is a shared ceramic studio for local artists, they also run events for budding ceramicists.
