More Pottery: Building on the Basics
Level: Beginner to Intermediate
This workshop is for those with some basic experience who want to build on their knowledge and improve their skills. We will use fundamentals like centering and opening and pulling walls to further learning and understanding in ideas of form and function. We will explore making larger pots such as bowls and plates, introduce the concept of combining multiple pieces to create larger and more complex forms and explore surface design inspired from ancient potters. Personal aesthetic and style will also be developed through projects focusing on sets and series. Glazing and finishing will be explored through the use of under-glazes, brushing and masking techniques as well as dipping and pouring glaze. Clay is available for purchase at the VCAC front desk.
Thursdays, August 1 to September 12 (no class August 22) 5:30pm-8:30pm
