It’s time to dive into the wonderful world of clay!  Instructor Casey O’Connor will take you on a six-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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATON: 
- 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 (some restrictions apply). 
- We do not offer prorated days, substitutions, or make-up classes so please plan accordingly
- Clay must be purchased at FSA.  All varieties are available beginning at $25 per 25lb bag
- Please do not bring in premade ceramic art, outside clay or glaze-we have everything you need! 
 

Optional Open Studio

When registering for any adult FSA Ceramics class, you have the opportunity to register for an Open Studio too.  Each Open Studio session includes one, 3-hour day per week for 6 weeks (see below for schedule details). You will have full access to the FSA Ceramics Studio and an FSA Instructor will be present to answer questions and assist you, but no new lessons will be taught during this time. You may register for one or both sessions! NOTE:  Prorated days, substitutions, or make up sessions are not allowed. PLEASE NOTE TIMES
