Students will learn the art of preparing clay for kiln firing and glazing. Students will work on individual projects tailored to their own interests and experience. The class includes demonstration/techniques such as wheel throwing, coil and slab building. Glazing and decoration techniques will also be demonstrated. Students will explore these techniques for themselves.
Registering for this class full-time will entitle the student to receive one 25-pound block of clay per month and one free firing of a work, which does not exceed 10 inches in any direction. Glaze firing is at an additional charge. Work exceeding 1000 cubic inches will be charged 5 cents per cubic inch over the 1000 cubic inches. Glazing of fired work is charged at 5 cents per cubic inch over the 1000 cubic inches (for example: 10 (height) x 10 (width) x 10 (depth) = 1000 cubic inches). Clay can be purchased at the League.
Students may work from the live model (Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday).
