If you’ve never worked with clay before, these two-day classes at Casita Workshop may be just for you. Learn to hand-build with clay (no wheel). The next classes start Nov. 5 and Nov. 19.
This beginning class will introduce you to clay and give you the experience and confidence to create with this medium.
Get to know the feel of clay, and learn to use the pinch, coil and slab methods to create small vessels. Learn how to add textures to the clay and how to attach two pieces of clay so they will stay attached during the drying and firing processes.
The workshop will cover types of clay and glaze, and there is a chance you can help unload your items from the kiln.
You’ll make three vessels, about 4 inches in size — you’ll have time to practice the three main ways of forming vessels. There also will be time to create more than one piece of your choice.
At the end, you’ll bring home a small pinch pot, coil pot, slab container and any other pieces you make. Each piece will be fired in a kiln two times in the process (between classes).
All supplies are included in the
If you get the ceramic itch to create more, after this workshop you will be ready to join any of the Open Clay Days where you can come in and make anything you’d like.
