$165

with Mame McKee

Calendar Sep 30, 2021 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

If you have always wanted to try your hand at clay this is the way to do it! Our small classes insure personal attention and guidance as you learn the basics and execute simple hand built projects. By the end of your course you will have explored several construction techniques including Pinch, Coil, Slab & Extrusion.  As your creations work their way through the processes of drying and firing, we will explore surface decoration and glaze application. Along the way you will become familiar with the basic properties of stoneware clay and the associated terminology. By the second week of this course you will have gained enough knowledge to consider our Basic Wheel Workshop.

Grab a friend you wish you could spend more time with and jump in! What could be better than playing together in the mud!
