CLASS DESCRIPTION

 

Students will focus on making cups/mugs and bowls utilizing slab building techniques. Due to this being a 5 week session we are keeping the forms simple to allow for more personal and individual creativity to be showcased during class. Students will have freedom to decorate and design their pieces utilizing as many surface design techniques as they see fit. Students can add clay designs using slip/score method, carve out designs, or add textures to their hearts content on their pieces. Utilizing open studio sessions will allow for students to make an additional piece outside of class to further practice all the methods and techniques learned in class or use that time to glaze their works.
