Pottery: Decorating With Images From Nature
In this course, hand-building and throwing techniques will be taught. Students will be encouraged to create decorative imagery using a direct printing and stamping process with objects found in nature. Demonstrations and collecting advice will be given. All skill levels are welcome.
The course fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glazes, and Cone 6 oxidation firings. Cone 10 firing and additional clay are available for a fee. A variety of clays are available, and clay used in the class must be purchased from the Craft Enrichment Program.
The Craft Enrichment studio is a teaching studio designed for the development and enhancement of skills. It is not for volume production of items for commercial sale. However, the Craft Enrichment Program does encourage participation in the December and May student sales and the April Empty Bowls event.
