Ceramics: Find Your Flow – Throwing Forms & Glazing
Explore the transformational qualities of clay by experimenting with form and glaze. This intensive class will challenge what, why and how you make ceramic works by focusing on intention and practice to enhance your abilities in making dynamic clay work. Start with instruction in wheel-throwing techniques on the foundational pottery forms including cups, mugs and bowls. Class discussions, optional readings and personal reflection activities will offer a departure point for your creative journey towards finding your flow in clay.
Instruction will be a blend of live demonstrations on Zoom and recorded in-class tutorials. Optional weekly assignments give you the chance to connect one-on-one with other participants and exchange peer feedback. Share ideas, pieces in process and other resources through the class Padlet resource board. While previous experience in clay will be helpful, this class is open to all levels.
