In this class we will be working with stoneware clay to be fired in a high temperature propane kiln. Those new to clay will be guided step by step through the basics of using the potter’s wheel or handbuilding techniques. Continuing students and those with previous experience are encouraged to develop their skills and are welcome to pursue more advanced directions with the instructor’s helpful input.  The class will culminate in a gathering over completed work with potluck on September 10th.
Cost for either session is $200/$185 for VAC Members plus a $15 materials fee for 6 lbs of clay, which includes glazes and firing for that material. Additional clay will be available for purchase.
Open studio time will be available to registered students on Wednesdays from 2 – 5pm.  Cost is $10 per day, with tickets available at the Administration Office front desk during business hours.  Must be registered for a ceramics class to participate.
