Handbuilding Projects for Kids, Monday afternoons, 2 hrs
For kids with a hankering for making all kinds of clay ware but perhaps not old enough to handle a studio wheel, handbuilding is the perfect place to start. Children will learn and develop a set of handbuilding skills over the course of six weeks. These include: pinching, coil building, and slab construction. They will also learn to decorate their projects by stamping, carving, and painting colored underglazes.
In the first four classes, kids will create a different project including a coil vase, animal rattle, creature mug, and a clay tile. The last two classes will be used for adding underglazes to complete the projects. Pieces may be picked up a week after the class ends.
Classes are held Mondays from 4:15-6:15 pm. Parents who participate in the class with their kids must also register as participants. Ages 6 and older.Please note, this class has set dates:
- Sept 17, 24, Oct 1, 8, 15, 22
Taught by Samantha Briegel.
