Join us at our first-ever digging wild clay and creating pinch pots and clay cattle with Nic Sithole. The clay will be dug on-site at the dam and will be followed by a demonstration on how to wash and prepare the clay for use. We will discuss the clay body, and how to do adjustments to make it workable clay. Nic will demonstrate how he creates his stunning cattle and ready-prepared clay will be available to create your own.
Nic Sithole was born in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga and since his childhood, he has created and formed animals in clay. His earliest childhood memories involve times spent in the open field looking after the family cattle herd with his cousins and they would make small herds of cattle from wild clay. Nic will share his stories with us and demonstrate how to create pinch pots and miniature cattle.
Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about wild clay and basic sculpting techniques with a master potter who has won numerous awards. Light lunch and refreshments will be served.
