Summer Evening Ceramic Sculpture Workshop (Sum17)

A four-session intensive evening class to create unique sculptures or vessels for your home or garden using both hand-building techniques and the potter’s wheel. Decorate with earthy or bright ceramic colors and glazes for a high temperature firing that will stand the test of time and weather. Resident artist Bruce Barry will introduce you to the pinch, coil, slab, and wheel methods you need for this hybrid project, suitable for any skill level in clay. Work will be fired to high temperature as completed or immediately following the course, and be ready for your garden or home, this season and beyond!

Workshop includes:

  1. •   Three weekly hours of demonstration and instruction in developing ceramic sculpture techniques and meeting technical challenges
  2. •   Individual guidance with personally-designed projects
  3. •   Discussion of the siting and context ceramic work, indoors and outdoors

All materials and tools are provided

Firing fees are calculated by volume and will be charged at the end of the session.

All levels welcome. No ceramic experience necessary.

Open to ages 16+
