Wednesday Evening - Handbuilding & Wheel
with Debbie Englund
This class is designed for any skill level and will focus on all aspects of ceramic sculpture and wheel throwing from concept to completion. We will discuss elements of 3-dimensional design, methods of constructing with clay, and surface treatments.
Students will design work based on personal interest and will be encouraged to stretch their imaginations. We will experiment with several different techniques including wheel throwing fundamentals, modeling and slab building. Students will finish their work using a range of surface treatments including texture, ceramic glaze, and polychrome.
Group demonstrations and instruction will be based on students’ interests and questions. Individual instruction will be provided at each class to promote student success. This class is intended for adults 18 years and older.
Class includes 25lbs. of clay, studio glazes and firing. Additional clay is available in the studio store. Wear old clothes, and bring an old towel and a beginner's set of pottery tools to the first class.
So bring a set of old clothes to change into and have a ball!
