Instructor: Mary Cameron
Saturday morning 9:30am – 11:30am (October 9 – October 30)
No experience required: this introductory pottery class is for ages 8-13. Students will learn how to turn their ‘play in clay’ into sculptural and functional objects.
Week 1: Embracing nature & the fall season, students will learn how to create a tea light jack o’lantern sculpture and a hanging plant holder. This class will introduce them to the tips, tricks and terminology of clay.
Week 2: Learning the basics of how to throw on the pottery wheel is focus of this class. It is harder than it looks, but super fun and addictive! The creation outcome of this class is unknown, but the wheel promises to be the messiest and most fun of all the pottery adventures!
Week 3: Mugs & spoons, the students will learn two new techniques: slab building and coil creating. Students will learn how to add texture to clay and have to option to embellish their creations-limited only by their imagination!
Week 4: The last week is all about adding that final shine to each piece that the student has created. This is the day that students glaze their work and learn about the do’s and don’ts of glazing and the kiln.
All student pottery will be ready for pickup after the classes have been completed, as each piece will need a final glaze fire after the last class.
