Introduction to Clay, Thursdays 9:30-noon, 8/16-9/13

Join local ceramic artist, Rachel Simpson, and learn to create your own trays, serving dishes and sculptures in this 5 week class! Class sessions typically begin with a 30 minute demonstration of techniques followed by free time for students to work on their projects. Class will meet from 9:30 to noon for five weeks. The last gathering will be 9/20 from 9 to 9:30 to pick up your final work. In this class, you will learn to work with slabs, drape molds and coiling methods. You will then choose the best technique for the shape you want to create.  Students will create a piece of art using any of these methods. Intermediate students may work on their own projects independently if they choose as long as they are approximately the same size as the rest of the class. Material fee for clay is $30 per bag. Please bring clay tools, a small hand towel and plastic to cover your work in progress. Dress for mess and come ready to have some fun!
