About The Class

This class would suit those that are able to wedge, centre and throw with intention. I will focus on keeping track of time and encouraging forward movement. We will each formulate a plan and I will guide the estimation and evaluation processes. We will reclaim the clay from those pieces that don't fit the set to learn that process also. This class will teach how to load both a bisque and glaze kiln with each person loading their own work into the kiln. The pots in this class would be for personal use for many reasons; I believe that we should use our handmade clay work daily to really learn about them before we share them with the world, also we don't support 'for sale' production in the volunteer run studio:)
