Clay Hand building Hand building techniques will be explored in classes using pinch pots, solid build up projects, coiling, slab construction, slumping and draping methods. All items will be created with cone 5 clay, fired in our kiln and then hand decorated with underglazes and fired to final maturity.
Wheel Throwing on the potters wheel begins with learning to center clay, pull up walls, shaping and the final detail of trimming a foot. Items will be thrown from cone 5 clay that will be enhanced with hand decorated details using glazes, underglazes and textured techniques.
Teens and tweens class will be keeping a journal of ideas to combine hand building and wheel throwing methods to create items that are larger, sculpture-like works of art.
