Description

Explore the rich possibilities of animal personality and spirit in this fun sculpture class.  Using basic slab building and modeling techniques, Joey will help guide you to the animal you want to make, and the persona you want it to express.  If it starts out as a bird and ends up as a dog, that’s OK; we’ll go with the flow, and let it become what it wants to become.  Joey will demonstrate both free standing and wall sculptures.   We’ll finish our work with a variety of slips, stains, and underglazes.  This class is open to everyone; beginners to advanced students.

Zoom classes will be augmented by recorded demonstrations and other resource materials. An initial bag of clay will be provided at pick up, as well as some slips.
