Making Little People with Vipoo Srivilasa

October 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CET


Have you ever wanted to make your own little monsters? 😍

Vipoo Srivilasa is hosting a live workshop – perfect for adventurous hand-builders who want to go beyond traditional pinch, coil, and slab techniques:

This fun workshop shows you how you can create your own little people using two of Vipoo’s flat coiling, hand-building techniques with porcelain.

This is the perfect workshop to do at home. Vipoo created this series of work during the lockdown time to keep himself company. You can now make your own to keep you company or send them to your loved ones.

In this workshop, you’re going to learn:

✔ How to prepare your clay slab and slip for hand-building
✔ How to design your Little People
✔ How to build your Little People using flat coils
✔ How to make simple arms, legs, and lips
✔ How to Decorate your Little People
✔ How to dry your porcelain to avoid cracks

This workshop is for anyone wanting to learn a new skill and challenge themselves.
There are endless possibilities with this technique.
For this workshop, I will be using the following materials:

  1. Clay – any good hand-building clay is good. However, I use Lumina porcelain clay (Australian made).
  2. A Slabmat sheet for rolling (www.slabmat.com​)
  3. A rolling pin and 2 wooden sticks (about 0.5 cm high)
  4. A few containers to make slip and soft clay
  5. Flower shape cookie cutters
  6. Your favorite basic pottery tools
  7. A turntable
  8. Newspaper
  9. A set of plastic sheets to keep your clay slab moist.
  10. A plasterboard for drying your work on.
  11. A thin and light plastic sheet to cover the work during the drying process, so that it can dry slowly.

A note on firing and clay

If you use ceramic clay you need a kiln to fire your work. If you don’t have a kiln, you can try air-dry clay instead. It does not require firing. Once dry, it becomes hard and ready to be painted with acrylic paint.  You could also use polymer clay. Making a smaller version of the work would be very cute and more suitable for polymer clay.
