Clays and Shales on West Town Farm

A soil walk

Lucy and Pete took another walk investigating clays and shales at West Town Farm. They took samples using an auger. They hope to devise a geology walk with interpretation for educational use and also for Art and Pottery use.

More exploring?

Lucy will  be further investigating and testing various samples in the pottery this Spring term. We already know the clay in Easterbrooks fires well to earthenware temperatures. We might use other samples  as additions in clay bodies/slips or glazes. Are you interested in digging your own clay and making something in the pottery? Would you like to experiment making natural glazes? Our Wednesday morning drop in clay sessions start again after half term 23rd February.
