Dates: February 4 - April 21 Days/Times: Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9:30pm Level: Beginner - Advanced Instructor: Kyle Johns
Course Description:Join 2018-19 Artist in Residence Kyle Johns in exploring hand building with clay on a whole new level in this fun yet challenging course. Students will first design and create bisque molds in order to create a library of forms to choose from. Next, using that library of forms, we will create pieces using both slab and coil methods with an eye towards utilitarian forms. In-class demonstrations will address issues of construction, function and cover a variety of surface decoration techniques. (12 classes/13 weeks).... Read more about Handbuilding Essentials
Dates: February 6 - April 23 Days/Times: Thursdays, 10:00am - 1:00pm Level: Intermediate - Advanced Instructor: Zac Mickelson
Course Description: This class format focuses on breaking old habits and considering new directions to take our work including utility, form and surface - including a soda firing! There are four, three-week cycles to this 12-week class. For two weeks, students, with the guidance of the instructor will “explore” through experimentation with different forms. The third week, the group comes together to “refine” through critique intended to refine our ideas. This format is then repeated three more times. Though this class does focus primarily on the wheel, hand builders are welcome! Class demonstrations will be given based on student input with the remainder of the class being one-on-one help. (12 classes/13 weeks)
