Beginning November 1, 2021 as a requirement of entry, all guests 18 and older of BCA managed indoor public facilities must be fully vaccinated and will be required to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination along with a state issued driver’s license or ID. To be fully vaccinated, a guest must have received the second shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the first shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two weeks prior to the event date. Guests ages 2 to 17 will be required to wear a mask at all times regardless of vaccination status. You may read the full policy here.  


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. Projects created in this class will not be completed until they are fired in a ceramic kiln. Kiln firings occur every 2 weeks. To pick up kiln fired pieces after two weeks, please see a Breck Create team member at Old Masonic Hall.

While participants will not be able to complete a fired project in one class, they are encouraged to take the Ceramic Glazing class or attend a Ceramic Open Studio to complete their projects.

Instructor: Melissa Michel


Class participants, even pre-registered, are required to check-in at Old Masonic Hall, 136 S. Main St., prior to class.
