Continuing Education Course
Students will learn practical hand-building techniques and skills on the wheel. Pinch pots, coil building and slabs will be demonstrated. Wheel work will follow. Wedging, centering, opening and pulling will be practiced. Combining hand building and throwing techniques to create new forms, students can focus on developing a personal style. Slip application, sgraffito and inlay, glazing and resist techniques will also be covered. A survey of the history of ceramics will be included.
NOTE: The studio fee includes safety equipment, hand tools, kiln use and access to the ceramics workshop outside of class time, based on facility availability. All other materials must be purchased by the student.
