Description

Making things at home has special challenges, but also makes for creative avenues to explore.  We’ll cover classic ways of building: slab, coil, pinch, etc., but also learn new decorating techniques, such as gel press monoprints, carved rubber molds for repeat decoration and pigmented paper slips.  There will be simple assignments and plenty of room for experimentation and fun.  This quarter the theme is ‘cuddling the space’: metaphors for vessels and people.  Words that might come to mind might be nesting, resting, containing, etc.  Special attention will also be paid to the function of the containers with surface treatments and glazing.  The weekly Zoom classes will be augmented with shared resource materials and demonstrations.  All skill levels are welcome in this friendly class.  An initial bag of clay will be provided at pick up, as well as some slips.
