Form & Function: A masterclass in forming clay

Edinburgh Ceramics Workshop, Abbeymount Studios 2 Easter Road Edinburgh EH7 5AN

Join us on Saturday the 27th of July for a very special claymaking masterclass in partnership with the Edinburgh Ceramics Workshop and photographer Chloe Rosser. The afternoon will begin with a talk from Chloe, who will discuss the process behind her hit photography series, 'Form & Function,' before an informal Q&A alongside browsing of the 'Form & Function' book. The series explores our complicated relationship with the human body through seemingly surreal contorted figures, using the camera to capture sculptures made of human flesh. Having each chosen an image of Chloe's for inspiration, we'll then be guided by the experts at the Edinburgh Ceramics Workshop to form a unique work of clay based on Chloe's photography. All levels of experience are welcome and we'll be teaching a range of different techniques and approaches to working with clay. Refreshments will be provided in the afternoon and all materials required are included, alongside a free copy of issue four of boom saloon which features Chloe's work. Please note that all works of clay will be dried and fired following the event and must be collected two weeks later. All profits raised from this event will support the next boom project, which will use filmmaking to give a voice to overlooked and underrepresented communities of Berlin.
