Tuesdays 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM Jan. 17th to Feb. 21st Ages 15+ In this class, students will learn about the properties of clay, and the techniques that make clay a useful medium to create functional as well as artistic forms fitting for everyday use. Techniques that will be primarily taught will include: • Wheel thrown basics for creating cylinder and bowl forms. • Methods for creating handles suitable for mugs and pitchers. • Pre-glaze decoration techniques for the various stages in which the clay may be altered. • Introductory glazing and finishing techniques for functional and decorative work. Students completing the class should also obtain a firm basic grounding in not only methods for forming clay on the wheel, but also an introduction to the esthetics of form.
