Clay Castles

In this unit, we will explore lines and textures. We will begin by using straight and curved lines to draw a castle. We will then explore how different tools and techniques can support us to create a model of a castle using clay. Finally after sculpting our castles we will evaluate them and suggest ways in which they could be improved. 

Using different lines to draw


First we experimented with a variety of tools and techniques in preparation for making our castles. We then chose the most suitable tools and techniques to use.

We used clay to make a model of a castle. We rolledcut and curled the clay to create a tower shape. Using a clay tool, we created features such as battlements, arrow slits and textured walls.
