Slab Clay Workshop

The Department of Ultimology will host a slab clay workshop in the Seminar Room at Dunlop Oriel House, Trinity College Dublin, on Tuesday, 19 December at 1pm. Led by artist Andreas Kindler Von Knobloch, who created the prototype Water Clocks which was unveiled at the recent Research Purge event, this will be a hands-on workshop in ‘slab clay’ technique.

You will learn how to form shapes and structures similar to those used by Andreas to create the water clocks and, as a reciprocal exchange, you will be invited to offer suggestions in how the workings of the clocks might be improved. After the workshop, the objects you create will be fired in a local kiln, and you will be able to keep your finished clay pieces.

All are invited to attend and the workshop and materials are all free, however space is limited so please send an email to to reserve a place if you would like to come. We will be booking on a first come, first serve basis.

Be prepared to get your hands dirty!
