About the Course

Clay is a readily available material that our hunter gatherer ancestors used for millenia to turn into a wide variety of both functional and decorative items. Join us at our ancient woodland camp and find out all about collecting and refining clay as well as how to transform this wonderful material into beautiful items.

You will learn how to make your own beautiful clay items from start to finish. You will:

- Gather local raw clay
- Learn how to refine the clay and make ready for use
- Make a variety of small, simple clay items like: bowls, pendants and beads
- Make a clay brick to be used for kiln building
- Build a primitive kiln
- Fire your clay pieces in the kiln
- Take home what you’ve made

About us and the venue:

Jack Raven Bushcraft was founded in 2011 and we've been delivering bushcraft, craft and foraging courses since then from our 30 acre private ancient woodland on the Kent Downs in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Courses in the summer are held outdoors in our woodland camp complete with covered work areas, an outdoor kitchen and a composting loo. Courses in the winter are held in our workshop in a converted barn.
