Introduction to Ceramics - A Good Place to Start

On weekend afternoons we offer an introductory class to ceramics. No skills required, one-time classes for the curious that want to give ceramics a try!

Your host, Wendy, will lead 6 students during this 3 hour class. Spend the afternoon learning about the ceramics process and trying it for yourself! Come on your own or with a friend - this is an open, friendly environment. Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome to join, but anyone under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult who is also taking the class. No need to bring anything special with you, just arrive 5 minutes before class. (Well... for COVID prevention we'll need your vaccination QR code and you'll need a mask to enter)

This is an excellent place to start to learn the basics about the ceramics process and test out basic techniques.

What you’ll learn and what we’ll do

On arrival we’ll show you our small batch ceramics workshop. Every day we’re here making ceramics for folks. After hearing what your experience and interests are in regards to clay, we'll get going. (30 minutes)

We’ll walk through a hands-on introduction to different types of ceramics and use. You learn the differences in basic types of clay such as porcelain, stoneware and earthenware. Different design elements, decorating techniques, durability and function. (30 minutes)

Let the fun begin.

Out come the aprons, clay and tools to get your hands dirty. I’ll explain the ceramics process and demonstrate three building techniques: coil, slab and pinching. You’ll get to follow along digging in hands-on. (45 minutes)

Now’s your time to shine. You'll have over an hour building in the workshop, with me there to help you along the way. My current work is based in functional ceramics and as a result, this will be the path I'll lead you down. However, you're free to create whatever makes you happy. (60 minutes)

A few weeks later your finished pieces come out of the kiln and are ready to be picked up or mailed to you. Shipping is not included in the workshop fee.

Last, it’s time to clean up to look respectable out on the street. Soap, water and hand washing. (15 minutes)
