Intro to Pottery & Ceramics

January 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Tuesday, repeating until February 26, 2019

Learn and explore the wonderful world of clay! In this class we will use techniques such as coil, pinch and slab to create decorative and functional ware.

Instruction will include treatment of clay in various stages of moisture, wedging, finishing techniques and glazing. There will be an introduction to wheel- throwing to form bowls, cups, bottles etc.

The Instructor is Kim Clarke. “When asked to describe her own work, Clarke already has a perfected artist statement ready to go.

“Tim Burton meets ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and explodes into Cirque du Soleil,” she says.

The description is fairly accurate among the bunnies, kings, queens and jesters. The only thing that doesn’t scream Lewis Carroll are her boats, in which figures and animals often sit — though she says she’s not sure why.

“Transportation’s kind of big for some reason,” says Clarke. “Cars, rockets.””
