Kids Handbuilding, 5 sessions - Saturdays @ 10 am
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. Our classes run for 10 weeks with a rolling admission. You may start at any time. Taught by Emma Dumain.
During this class, your child will learn how to create pinch pots, slab built boxes, plates and trays, spoons and other implements, tiles and coasters, bowls and plates using various molds and sculptural and figurative pieces.
Ages: 6 to 14. Max of 10 students per class. We welcome parent-child couples in this class! Your fee includes pretty much everything*. Also, pls note that this particular class comes with options for purchasing for five & ten class sessions.
INFO FOR BEGINNERS
ALL our classes are suitable for beginners. For beginners, the teachers take extra time to get you started, guiding you through essential skills and techniques. In general, classes are loosely structured so that the teacher can work with each student at their own pace. If you have a question about classes or membership, please send an email to Adele at membership (at) districtclaycenter.com.
Please indicate in the Notes field:
- The date you would like to start within 2 weeks of registration.
- If you will miss a class during your session and cannot do a make-up, let us know by your first class and we will extend your end date accordingly (up to four absences per session). If you will be absent more than 4 times, you can drop-in on ANY other class as a make-up.
- if you are registering for another person, please include that person's name and contact info.
If a class you would like to join is full, you can be added to a waitlist by registering below in the waitlist section (there is no fee and you can waitlist for up to two classes). If you put your second choice in the notes field, we'll go ahead and add you to the waitlist for that class. We will contact you as SOON as a space becomes available. Once we contact you, you will have 2 weeks to register.
*WHAT YOUR FEE INCLUDES: Your class fee includes instruction, personal shelf space, use of any tools you may need (we have dozens of different kinds), 25 lbs of clay, glazes and bisque & glaze firing in our gas reduction kiln. We don’t make you buy a tool kit, pay extra fees for glaze firings or rent shelf space. All you need to bring to class is a towel and a willingness to get a little muddy.
MORE ENROLLMENT BASICS: Enrollment in regular classes is rolling, so you can generally begin on a date you specify and continue for ten weeks. If you register online, your online registration will be confirmed before your class begins. Please don't attend a class until you have received a date confirming your start date. If you have questions about DCC classes or enrollment, please send them to Adele at membership (at) districtclaycenter (dot) com.
CLASS REFUNDS: You can get a 100% refund by letting us know prior to your first class that you need to cancel your 10 week session. You can get a 50% refund if you let us know before your third class. After your third class, we can't give any more refunds.
