Come explore the wonder that is clay! Clay is just broken down old rocks with some water to make it stretchy, squishy, elastic and pliable. Combined with fun experimentation, lots of imagination, some problem solving and perseverance thrown in clay results in magnificent and useful creations. Creations, which will be painted with glazes, and subjected to the furnace-like fires of the kiln. Join us for some hand-built mudworks in the pottery studio! In this class, we will use hand building techniques such as coil, pinch, and slab to create decorative and functional ware. Instruction will include treatment of clay in various stages of moisture, wedging, finishing techniques and glazing.
