Explore a variety of projects in basic hand-building with clay, creating large creatures, masks and imaginary environments. There will be plenty of time on the potter’s wheel for everyone to learn techniques in throwing a pot. Try your hand at abstract sculpture, too. Remember to wear old clothes; this can get messy—yes! But isn’t that what adds to the fun? 

 

Materials: All materials (including firing) will be supplied for the $30 fee, which should be paid to Ellen at the first class meeting. This fee includes all clay and supplies needed to create fantastic sculptures and the firing of each work of art. Remember to wear clothes that can get dirty.

Then you will glue, glue, glue and grout, grout, grout (a new word!) all the little pieces into MASTERPIECES! You’ll learn how to make colorful mosaic designs, mirrors or drinks coasters, flowerpots or vases, and even a flat wall-piece to hang in your room. This class will be a lot of fun, so sign up early
