Come get down and dirty while learning to make functional and sculptural forms on the potter's wheel! In this course, students will learn how to use the potters wheel to create cups, bowls, plates, vases, and pouring vessels. Students will practice throwing, trimming, making handles and spouts, and finishing and firing their pieces. Students will experience clay both as a functional building material and as an expressive medium. Color and texture will be explored through a variety of slips and glazes. The instructor will lead demonstrations in slip work with scraffito, mishima, and stamping techniques, in pouring, dipping, and brushing on glazes. Each week, a new technique will be demonstrated, and a new artist's artwork will be presented to ignite your imagination! No previous ceramics experience necessary—this class is open to all levels.
