Beginning Handbuilding and Wheel Throwing (Shaker Week)
Date: Sunday, Nov 1 - Saturday, Nov 7, 2020
Subject: Clay
Instructor: Bill Capshaw
Share:

Become comfortable working with clay through relaxing and fun handbuilding techniques-pinch, coil, and slab. Use oxides and slips to add color and texture, and learn to fire in an electric kiln. We'll then transition to the wheel, practicing the six basic elements of throwing. A minimum of six projects can be expected. Emphasis will be placed on clay preparation and three easy steps to centering clay, allowing beginners to successfully make pottery.

Tuition: $630.00
