Cameron is a London-based professional potter who has been working with clay for 5 years after leaving a career in marketing.
Primarily making wheel-thrown homewares, he also dabbles in handbuilt sculpture as well as teaching others how to start their own journey with clay.
How do we schedule our online private class?
After you've paid for this product, Cameron will be in touch via email to organise a time that works for both parties.
Cameron is extremely flexible in terms of days and times as he can adapt his studio work around the classes, so don't worry, we'll find a time!
Please note, your private class can only be rescheduled if you cancel with at least 24 hours notice.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Yes, to make sure you get the most out of your class, please prepare the following before your class:
- Make sure you're on a large flat surface. Cover it with newspaper so you don't get clay everywhere
- Wear an apron or clothing you don't mind getting messy
- A small pot of water
- Bring bags of enthusiasm!
Do I need a kiln?
Air-dry clay is designed to let you unleash your ceramic creativity at home without a kiln. It will naturally harden over 3-5 days without needing to be fired, making it perfect for home use.
That said, if you would like a more resilient final piece, this clay can be fired up to 1250°C. We suggest reaching out to local pottery studios and asking if they will fire your piece for a small fee. Your work will need to be fired twice - first as a 'bisque' at around 1000°C which hardens the clay to prepare it for glazing, then again after applying a glaze. If you're firing the kiln yourself, follow all manufacturer instructions and please make sure that the kiln is well vented (i.e. suitable extraction fan and canopy fitted allowing fumes to be safely removed from the kiln room).
Is the Kit suitable for kids & pregnant women?
The paints and clay are non toxic and safe for pregnant women & kids but don’t eat any clay and always avoid inhaling any clay dust. The Kit itself is suitable for kids over 3 years and it’s a great activity to do together. However, our Kit is not a toy and requires careful supervision from an adult at all times, and please be extra careful when using the tools (we recommend removing the Metal Needle Tool when using the Kit with children).
Is air-dry clay waterproof?
No, air-dry clay is not waterproof or food safe. Don't let that stop you from making vases or mugs though! Just use them with dried flowers or holding pens.
Paint and varnish adds a layer of water resistance which is great for plant pots or other things that risk occasionally getting damp. That said, the best way to make plant pots is to keep the plants in their own plastic pot which can be removed during watering and returned once excess water has drained out.
How long does the wet clay last?
The clay will last for up to 6 months stored in its original packaging and once opened we advise wrapping tightly in cling film and storing any left over clay inside an airtight container. If it dries out too much, simply spray it with a little water and seal the clay tightly to let it slowly rehydrate.
How long does it take to dry?
Drying time will vary depending on the thickness of your piece and the temperature of your home, but on average it will dry by itself within 24-48 hours. You can tell it's fully dry when it turns completely white.
The clay will shrink a little as it dries introducing stress points so let your work air dry naturally and evenly without help from the sun or a hairdryer to reduce the risk of cracks. If you're especially concerned about cracking or your house is particularly warm, leave the piece in a cooler area away from drafts or cover it loosely with plastic to slow the drying process.
The paint is water-based, non-toxic, and water-resistant once dry.
