Learn hand-building techniques with clay including coil, slab, pinched pot, construction of functional and sculptural objects and begin to explore surface possibilities including decorative techniques and glazing. A great foundation in ceramics for people new to clay or wanting to refresh their skills. Throughout the classes, we will explore a variety of forming and finishing techniques that will demonstrate ways to make unique pieces of art. In addition to the basic techniques a few more complex projects will be shown in hopes of challenging students who have worked with clay previously. Striving to provide a platform for the creative and curious minds, students who dive into sculpting get a chance to express their creativity and develop confidence, helping them prepare to take on the world with passion and creativity.
Materials: Students should bring an apron or an old shirt to protect their clothes.
