Course Overview 

This class is split up into two modules of four-weeks each, students will take both modules and will develop a basic understanding for clay as a material and the tools involved in working with it. In the first four-weeks we will have two hand-built projects. The first will be in the technique of slab building a vessel, and the second in coil building. We will also introduce the firing process, under glazing and glazing. In the second half of the course, a continuation of basic skill development in hand building techniques as well as wheel throwing (ghost moments here we come). We will have one hand-built project, and one wheel thrown project. The first will be in pinching/ hand building, and the second wheel throwing. We will also look at how all these different techniques can be beneficial as a ceramic maker.
