 8 Weeks: Thursdays, 6 – 8:30 p.m.

In this class we’ll be using the different handbuilding techniques of coil, pinch and slab building as well as several surface decoration techniques to explore the endless possibilities that clay has to offer.   You’ll be making a variety of fun and useful pieces.  You’ll work on flat forms like plates and trays, vertical forms such as vases, handled mugs, and jars as well as lidded forms like a sugar or cookie jar or toothbrush holder.   You’ll use texture, colored slips and glazes to enhance the surface design of each piece.

8 Weeks: Tuesdays,  6 – 8:30 p.m.

This class is for anyone that wants to learn to throw on the potter’s wheel and for those who want to improve their throwing skills.   Our focus will be on centering, pulling up and creating even walls.  Everyone will work at their own pace to progress to larger and more advanced forms.  We will also work on making and attaching different types of handles.  You’ll learn how to trim your work and, finally, glaze your pieces for their final firing in our electric kilns.
