Spring 2013 classes:
Ceramics for Kids: Wheel-throwing and Hand-building (Grades 2-5)
A wet lump of clay spinning under your hands turns into a bowl as if by magic. Welcome to the wonderful world of the pottery wheel. In this class we will learn wheel-throwing techniques like centering, forming, and finishing and hand-building skills like pinching, coiling, and rolling out slabs. We'll decorate using textures and glazes. Repeat students welcome!

Ceramics for Tweens (Grades 6-9)
No experience is necessary to make cool stuff out of clay. Learn how to throw on the potter's wheel using skills to help center, pull up a piece, and attach handles or a lid. Create your own hand-built masterpiece using slabs, coil and pinch pot methods. You'll create your own mugs and bowls, explore three dimensional sculptures, as well as sculptural relief tiles, not to mention glazing, trimming and firing! Bring your creative ideas, and be prepared to get dirty and have fun. Suitable for all levels of experience and all materials are included in the course fee.
