Intermediate Pottery - Eric and Claire

Description

Description

This eight-week class is open to students who have completed at least two Craft Enrichment Beginning Pottery classes or at least 16 weeks in an equivalent program. Instruction will focus predominantly on wheel throwing techniques. Students should feel comfortable centering clay and pulling the walls of a cylinder. Class will focus on refining throwing skills and learning techniques to throw bigger and taller pots and shape bowls, vases and other vessels. Students should be prepared to identify projects and skills they would like to work on during the course. The class will include an overview of advanced surface design techniques, including slip and underglaze applications and sgraffito, with opportunities to apply the techniques to work created during the course. A variety of clays, glazes, slips and underglazes will be available for Cone 6 oxidation firing.

Supplies

Each registered student will receive 1 (25lb) bag of clay and pottery tools to use during the course. Additional clay can be purchased through our website.  Students can bring their own pottery tools that would include a Wire Clay Cutter, a Sponge, a Steel Scraper, a Potter's Rib, a Loop Tool, a Needle Tool, and a Boxwood Modeling Tool.
