Online January Continuing Handbuilding - Monday
Online continuing hand-building class.
Monday, January 4th - 18th
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Takes place every week, a total of 3 sessions
For students who have participated in the beginning hand-building lessons or have a bit of hand-building experience and want to delve deeper.
This class covers the following:
Week 1: Slab Building on a Form We will learn how to use a form to create larger cylinders, how to alter these forms using darts, and how to use these as the basis to make things like pitchers and vases. (For the first week of class, please bring a wine bottle or similarly shaped/sized cylindrical object, a piece of newspaper, tape, and a rolling pin -- or use your wine bottle.)
Week 2: Clay Marbling and Kurinuki In this class we will learn how to use two or more clay bodies to create a marbled effect. We will also learn Kurinuki carving techniques and explore ways to create beautifully organic surface textures.
Week 3: Surface Decoration This class is all about ways to decorate the forms we have created. The teacher will demonstrate different ways to use underglaze, as well as Mishima (clay inlay), and slip trailing. Students should have at least one leather hard piece to work on for this class.
Class includes clay, toolkit rental, and firing/glazing for up to five pieces (additional pieces are $1/lb for glaze firing)
