Adult Pottery: Beginner Class
October 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 5, 2019
Beginner Pottery Class (begins Oct. 10th ends 12/5/2019
Thursday with Kerri Zeimann: Welcome! In this eight-week class you will learn the basics of how to make objects out of clay. The clay that we use in this class is midrange stoneware, fired to Cone 6 (2230 degrees Fahrenheit). We will learn several techniques on shaping the clay. Together we will explore some hand-building techniques but most of the emphasis will be exploring wheel throwing and learning how to make basic radially symmetrical shapes. Throughout the coming weeks you will familiarize yourself with this material and develop a “relationship” with it. Learning how to work with clay can be as equally frustrating as it is rewarding. The more time you spend working and being attentive to the clay, the more you will understand it as a material. The more you understand the material, the tools, and the processes we use to manipulate it, the easier it will be to mold it to your desired end result.
