FUNCTIONAL CERAMICS LEVEL 1: 6 WEEKS$291.00
In this class, you will establish a foundation of hand-building techniques to explore the production of functional ceramics for your home or alternatively sculptural work. This course offers 2.5 hours per week of in-studio instruction plus 2 hours of open studio time on the weekend.
Slab building, coil, pinch, and molds will be considered in the construction of plates, pots, cups, and bowls. The first three weeks will focus on the direct application of design principles and building techniques, and the following two weeks will cover sculpture and decorative additions to refine the evolution of your forms. The final class will cover the basics of glazing and finishing methods for your pieces. The techniques and ideas taught may be applied to the production of functional or non-functional ceramic objects.
Materials included. Families and beginners are welcome. Minimum age: 11 years
