An introduction to creating basic ceramic vessels and sculptures.

Through the completion of several projects, students will experience basic properties of clay and discover the diverse range of glazes and methods to finish work. Demonstrations will be divided equally between hand-building, wheel and finishing. Level: beginner-intermediate.
