This is a eight weeks class geared for intermediate and advanced potters who wish to improve on their clayworking skills. The main focus of the class is to get the students to have more control of the work they do and increase the success rate of getting the result they seek. Some of the possible areas to work on would be to increase the range of sizes of your work, and to understand the drying process in more detail. The students will learn the theory of when to do what and the plan of how to achieve their goal. The classes will not be focused on what to make, but how to make. Both handbuilding and wheelwork skills will be included as part of the class.
An $85 Clay and Firing Fee will be separately invoiced to students.
Prerequisites: At least one or two semesters of ceramics classes.
Basic tools are provided by the studio. Student may wish to purchase their own tools. Instruction will be provided in first class.
This class is for adults.
