It's time to dive into the wonderful world of clay in a special Summer Session!  Instructor Casey O’Connor will take you on a five-week 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 may 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.
- No prorated days, substitutions, or make-up classes allowed at FSA.
