An ongoing program with Cristal Aldrete for beginners or experts! Learn hand-building techniques in pottery, figurative sculpture, and glazing with earthenware clay. Create sculptural relief tiles, full 3-d sculpture, functional pottery and tableware, figures, and more. This course uses ancient methods that don’t require a potter’s wheel, including coil construction and slab-construction. Students will learn how to securely join corners and handles, make lids fit properly, and various kinds of surface treatments, textures and glazes.Bisque and glaze firings are scheduled at an off-site kiln regularly. The instructor will notify students when fired work is available for pick-up at the next class or during business hours throughout the week.Tuition: $50 for a two-class pack, or $20/class | All materials and supplies provided.
