This is a general pottery/ceramics course designed for creative exploration. A variety of construction techniques will be demonstrated including the potters’ wheel. Support and encouragement of finding your voice in clay will be emphasized. You will be exposed to the entire process of ceramics including forming, decorating, glazing and firing.
