    How to do it

    1
    Work up the clay in your hands. Roll a small block of clay into a suitably sized foot ring for the bowl. Leave to dry.

    5
    Make holes along the top edge for sewing the paper raffia onto the clay bowl. Smooth out the edges of the holes. Leave the bowl to dry completely. Drying time: approx. 48 hours depending on the room temperature. You may place it near a heat source (radiator) when drying. A tip: If cracks appear in the clay bowl once dry, you can repair these by mixing a small amount of clay with a bit of water to a creamy consistency. Fill the cracks with the mixture, preferably with a brush. Leave to dry. Any uneven areas on the bowl can be sanded smooth with a sanding sponge or with fine sandpaper.

    You will need quite a lot of paper raffia when sewing the paper raffia rim onto the edge of the bowl (approx. 8 m). A tip: Divide the paper raffia into three, sewing with smaller pieces of paper raffia. Tie the ends of the paper raffia together very tightly and adjust the joints so that the knots can be hidden inside one of the holes along the edge of the clay bowl. Continue sewing. Sew the rim onto the bowl with 4 stitches in each hole.

    Sew the 4th stitch between the bowl and the paper raffia rim. Sew twice around the paper raffia rim before the next hole.
