It's time to dive into the wonderful world of clay! Instructor Casey O’Connor will take you on a journey of discovery as you become a potter or sculptor! Get ready to explore various methods of hand building techniques such as pinch, coil, slab construction, and press molding. You’ll also operate a potter’s wheel and learn throwing techniques, trimming, and surface designs such as sgraffito, Mishima, and glazing. Work with various surface applications to create unique vessels you’ll treasure for a lifetime! This course is designed for beginners as well as intermediate students.
Each student is allowed to create up to 6 pieces of average size to be bisque and glaze-fired per six-week session. Additional pieces may be subject to firing fees. Clay can be purchased at the school for $25 per 25 lbs. No outside clay allowed.
