Ceramics I: Intro to Clay
In Clay I you will learn the basic tools and materials used to make handbuilt ceramics. Students will learn the fundamental skills of handbuilt ceramics: Wedging, Pinching, Coiling, and Slab preparation. You will also learn the various hand tools and equipment used to create pinch pots. Students will create three handbuilt projects: pinch pot, a small slab plate, and coil bowl.
Note: this workshop doesn't cover glaze techniques - these are covered in our Glaze Workshop. If you want to glaze your work please sign up for a glaze workshop that takes place at least two weeks from the Ceramics I workshop, so that all of your work can be bisque fired in time for glazing. You can sign up for the Glaze Workshop here!
Workshop is for: Adults, ages 14+ with parent
Students should wear: long hair tied back
