In the six sessions students will learn three fundamental techniques for working with clay: coils, pinch and slab methods. Following an introduction to tools, techniques and processes, students will create three clay projects using the three methods–a mug built of coils, a multi-purpose bowl utilizing the pinch technique, and a flat dish made from rolling slabs of clay. Returning students will have the options to work in any of the three techniques and encouraged to combine them to create more elaborate pieces. Students will display their works at an art show with cake and coffee. Since this is a beginner level class, no experience working with clay is necessary.
