Looking to explore inventive ceramic art by making delightful imaginary beings out of clay? Check out our innovative handbuilding course where students can create their own fantastic clay creatures, critters, and figures. Students will learn how to plan, execute, and glaze small-scale ceramic sculptures of their design. Over the six weeks, we explore how to create expressions through size, features and proportion. We will also cover methods for hollowing, moisture management, surface detailing and texturing, as well as how to isolate colored areas when painting glazes. Students with previous experience in a range of handbuilding techniques will find this class most rewarding. Each weekly class is two hours long - which breaks out to an affordable cost of $49/week. Class size limited to 8. Included with this course: - Open studio time to practice throwing on your own each week. Please see the Student Practice page on the website for current practice hours. - 25 pounds of clay (including firing and glazing). - Basic tools for your use during class. (Bring a towel and apron if you like.) (There are no make up classes for this course. If you need to miss a class, speak with your instructor about what you will miss. Try to get extra studio practice that week, and follow any guidelines for learning what you will miss that your instructor may have for you.)
Contact studio for class or course changes. 5 days' notice before the first class for 6-week courses or 3 days' notice before a one-time class.
