Clay Hand-Building @ Old Masonic Hall
Apr 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Clay Hand-Building @ Old Masonic Hall | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

 

This class will experience clay hand building through the method of slab construction and slab manipulation, pinching and coiling to create decorative and also functional pieces. Projects will include cylinder vessels, slab boxes and pockets, tumblers, cups, mugs and plates.

This class will also explore surface decorating techniques using underglazes and sgraffito as well as texture techniques and slip trailing that will make your utilitarian pieces come to life with design.

Please note that ceramics is a multistep process. While participants will not be able to complete a fired project in one class, they are encouraged to take a private glazing class or open studio to complete/glaze their project.

Firings occur when there is enough work to fill the kiln.

Instructor: Melissa Michel

Photography for Hikers @ Riverwalk Center

Photography for Hikers @ Riverwalk Center | Breckenridge | Colorado | United States

A fancy photo app may make your photography look better, but there’s more to eye catching photos than adjusting contrast and color post shoot. Improve your photography skills while enjoying some fresh air on some local trails. Learn some tips on photo composition to help you compose a dynamic shot to begin with, as well as tips on camera operation, whether you will be using your camera phone or your DSLR camera. In addition to bringing cameras, students should also be able and prepared for a light to intermediate hike, with proper footwear, attire, water, snacks, and anything else they may need. We will walk from the Riverwalk Center to a local trail. Anticipate 1-3 miles of hiking. All ages welcome.

Instructor: Kia Neill

Class participants can check-in outside the Riverwalk Center’s West Amphitheater entrance (parking lot side of the building) prior to class. All participants must wear a mask and will be screened upon arrival. Please allow a minimum of 15 minutes prior to class start for the registration process.
