De-stress with clay! Join Manny's class for a fun mid-week break. Relax, create and enjoy transforming 25 pounds of clay into pots for your friends, family, pets and you. The goal is for each student to learn pottery techniques and see the magic transformation of the clay on the potter's wheel from your touch to the final product. The focus is on developing your skills from beginners on up.
Week 1 - Orientation to the class, goals, schedule and facility. Demo on how to throw a pot on the wheel.
Week 2 - Demo on trimming and foot making for pots and making more pots.
Week 3, 4, & 5 - Make more pots. Demo of various forms, e.g. plates, bowls, handles, etc. Students may request a a pottery project for Manny to demo.
Week 5 & 6 - Demo of glazing techniques. Students glaze their pots. CLM provides a selection of glazes; however, if a student wants a glaze the CLM does not offer, he/she will be responsible for ordering and purchasing that glaze.
There will be a kiln opening party at the end of the session to unveil and share your beautiful pots with family and friends.
