Course Description: It’s time to dive into creating ceramic art! Join Instructor Maggie Skidmore for this special eight-week class and play with clay as you learn to design and shape artful ceramic creations using hand-building techniques for sculpted art. You’ll also have the opportunity to throw clay on a potter’s wheel to make vessels like bowls, cups or pots. Maggie will teach coiling, pinch pots, slab construction, etc. to take your ceramic art to the next level. Plus, you’ll learn about glazing your art to prepare it for being fired in a kiln. This process transforms the matte clay into vibrant artwork you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Maggie will provide project ideas, but you’ll have the freedom to create your own art.
**Please Note: Some art may not be glazed and fired. All art must be picked up at FSA within two weeks of completion of the class
