** For purposes of proper glazing and firing, all students must use cone 10 clay and glazes available at Chases Garage - no clay purchased from outside sources will be permitted for use in this class. We use #900 toast brown stoneware as well as #510 white stoneware from Laguna and have over 20 glazes available for use in the studio. Students will learn wheel throwing, hand building, surface design and glazing techniques from local ceramicist, Mary Sweeney.

Decorating techniques will be taught including, slip decoration, carving, wax resist and glaze decoration. Hand building will be taught with a new hand built assignment every week using the slab roller or extruder. You will be taught to your level with personal instruction. This class should be creative, fun and relaxing!
