An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until May 30, 2023
Fundamentals in Clay with D’ Calvert – Every Tuesday from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
This course provides entry into the world of ceramics. Projects highlight hand building techniques from basic pinch pots, slab work, extruded forms and wheel work. Demonstrations and resource material will offer inspiration. The goal is to learn how the material works and provide each student with an opportunity to express their self in this ancient medium.
The student will begin with a concept; we will marry the building techniques needed to achieve the form desired. Surfaces will incorporate the use of gesture, color, form and/or text to create a connection with the viewer. Careful attention to craftsmanship in construction will be followed throughout to insure a successful result.
All classes include 4 sessions, each of which are 3 hours, for a total cost of $245.00. The class fee also includes instruction for wheel throwing, hand building and kiln firings. An additional student lab fee of $52.00 plus tax covers 25 lbs. of clay as well as access to all studio glazes. We have a 72-hour cancellation policy (details provided at the bottom of our Classes and Supplies page).
