Clay: An exploration in Hand-Building with Melissa Rossow, all levels, 16+, 4 Mondays 6-8pm, Starts June 3


All levels, ages 16 and over

Come create fun projects with clay in this 2 hour class! Let’s dream up creations that reflect your unique style!  Creative clay focuses on learning clay and hand-building basics and exploring different ways to join, shape, and decorate clay. We will use our imaginations to bring clay to life through the three basic hand-building forms – pinching, coiling, and slab-rolling. This class is ideal for first time students and returning potters, it encourages personal expression through structured projects along with individualized instruction. Projects will be both functional (a bowl, a plate, and cup) and decorative (a vase, and a box) and will also include sculptural elements. Together we will focus on experimenting with surface treatments including – texture, pattern, and color methods. You will get muddy, so wear an old shirt or apron.  Maximum 9 students.
