Clay pinch, slab, and coil pots are some of the oldest crafts in human history. Join us live via Zoom to learn some fun handbuilding processes to make a small bowl, cup, or other vessel. We'll chat about the properties of clay and a variety of simple processes you can do at home with tools you have on hand. Small portions of fireable clay will be available at the Craft Center Kit Dispensary on each Tuesday before the class, starting at 12:00 PM. If you grab one of these bags, you will have the opportunity to drop off your finished piece to be bisque fired later in the term. (We will only be firing Craft Center clay. No other clay will be accepted back.) Even if you don't have an opportunity to get clay, or you're not in the area, you can still join us to watch and learn some ceramic handbuilding techniques!
This is part of a multi-session workshop. To accommodate as many participants as possible, the sessions are listed separately, so be sure to sign up for all of them. If you are unable to attend a session, we will do our best to accommodate you and get you caught up.
Craft Center online workshops will take place via Zoom. Participants can work along with the instructor with the tools and materials available to them, or simply watch the workshop demonstrations and ask questions. Meeting login information will be emailed to participants shortly before the start of the session. If you do not receive a login email, please contact us so that we can connect you. In some cases, workshop demonstrations may be recorded for participants who are unable to attend the live session; this will only be done with the agreement of all participants.
