Virtual: Kiln Basics
September 30, 5-6pm
with Ben Clark
Electricity is scary. Kilns have lots of buttons. Ben can help you make sense of the whole thing. We will break down loading, kiln maintenance, repairs, pricing, and home safety. We’ll use zoom to guide you through this class, students will participate from a location of their choice.
Virtual: Handbuilding Using Non-Traditional Molds
October 14, 6:30-7:30
with Beth Suellentrop-Barkey
In this workshop, Beth will discuss the differences between plaster, bisque and non-porous molds as well as the benefits of each. She will demonstrate using bisque molds as well as “found object” molds to create unique serving pieces. Perfect to get your holiday platter inspiration!
Virtual: Throwing & Altering
November 4, 5-6pm
with Ben Clark
In this workshop, Ben will show you all of his tricks on altering pots on and off the wheel. Use the wheel to get you started, then take those forms out of the round to give them more character!
November 18, 6:30-7:30
with Jon Stein
Let Jon show you the RIGHT way to make a teapot. From correct spout angles, lids and straining holes, Jon has had plenty of experience perfecting this form. This is a great chance to learn his secrets!
December 9, 6:30-7:30
with Chrissy Trout
Ever wondering what darting was? Chrissy can teach you!
Darting can give your pots volumes and angles you never thought possible. Jazz up your symmetrical bowls and cups with a few quick cuts! This technique is applicable for everyone from hand-builders to throwers.
