I found this screen at a pound shop. It turned out to be just the right size to fit on the top of a bucket and works great for filtering most of the unwanted material from the clay. The mesh is quite course, so some of the smaller bits still got through - maybe I will filter it again with a finer screen - but the mixture is looking a lot cleaner. I used an old credit card to push the clay through the mesh.

Here you can see the small rocks and roots that were left on the screen.

The mixture is still mostly water, so I will gradually reduce this over the next few days by removing the excess as the clay settles at the bottom and thickens.
