Intro to Handbuilding
with Martin Jarman
Thursday Nights from 6:30 to 9:00pm
May 14 to June 18, 2020
This six week course will introduce students to essential clay hand-building techniques. Initially students will develop their skill through a series of directed projects, before moving onto creating unique self-directed clay artwork. Additionally, students will be instructed in a wide variety of decorating techniques, including underglaze painting, in-glaze (majolica) painting, and carving, as well as learning glaze dipping and brushing techniques. Though the combination of these lessons students will gain the ability to produce an infinite variety of clay artworks confidently, while also gaining a much deeper understanding of the complete clay making process.
Date Night Workshop
The Clay & Glass is excited to host ongoing Date Night Classes in the ceramics studio. Participants will have the chance to try out both hand building and the pottery wheel during this 3 hour workshop to create both functional and sculptural pieces.
A fun night for couples, friends, or to just treat yourself!
Our instructor will give a demonstration on hand building techniques, as well as the basics of throwing on the wheel. Participants will then be able to create any pieces that they desire with the guidance and advice of the instructor. Everyone in attendance is welcomed and encouraged to make multiple pieces.
Open to all experiences levels. Space is limited for these events so participants are asked to register in advance.
