ALL CLASSES CANCELLED THROUGH APRIL 30, 2020.

 

This is an introduction to the potters wheel where students will practice the standard throwing steps of centering clay and bringing up the walls to form cylinders and basic shapes. While ceramics is a multiple-step process, students are encouraged to take a second class to cover finishing steps with trimming and adding handles to their pieces and also explore different methods of surface decoration, including sgraffito techniques using underglazes.

While participants will not be able to complete a project in 1 class, they are encouraged to take another class and/or glazing class to complete their pieces. Firings occur when there is enough work to fill the kiln.

Instructor: Melissa Michel

 

All participants, even pre-registered, are required to check-in at Old Masonic Hall, 136 S. Main St., prior to class. Please allow a minimum of 10 minutes prior to class start for registration process.

This kid class acts more as a club, where students will be introduced to various ceramic processes and projects, and allowed to pursue their own creativity in clay with guidance from the instructor. We will mostly utilize hand building techniques, while wheel throwing will be an option for more advanced students. Ceramics is a multi session process, and it usually takes 2-3 classes to complete a project.

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

The cost of the class includes clay, use of wheels, tools, and other studio equipment.

For ages 6 – 12. To ensure a spot, register online. Parents must register at Old Masonic Hall for first-time participants.

Instructor: Kia Neill
