Sometimes you need a large vase to put your giant bouquet of flowers in. Maybe the fruit bowl you have just isn’t big enough to hold your apples and oranges. And, what are you going to put your salad in for the potluck this weekend? This class will bring your ceramics throwing skills to the next level… Go big, or go home! The focus of this course will be to explore different throwing techniques to create large vessels, bowls and platters. A skilled instructor will give tips on how to wedge, center and throw a cylinder on a larger scale using more clay. Additionally, students will be introduced to the concept of ‘stacking’ or building larger vessels by combining smaller pots on top of one another. Each week, the instructor will demonstrate new techniques and concepts. This class is appropriate for any student who has previously taken an introductory level ceramics class. Students will receive a complimentary 25 pound bag of cone 6 clay, but may need to purchase additional materials for their personal projects. All other materials and tools will be provided. Enrollment in this course includes additional access to one monitored Open Studio session per week; either on Thursday afternoons from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Friday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm, or Sunday evenings from 5:00pm - 8:00pm. Unfinished student work should be picked up within two weeks of last class.
