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 when there is enough work to fill the kiln. To pick up kiln fired pieces, 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.
