Virtual Classes

Virtual classes are a great option to stay creative with hectic schedules and safety concerns. Our new virtual classes are conducted live with our instructors using Zoom. So all you need is some clay, a webcam and you are good to go.

Who is it for?

Intermediate to advanced hand builders and potters that want to work from home. Perfect for those that want to social distance during the current COVID-19 pandemic, but still want a little interaction and great, expert guidance and projects from our instructors.

Handbuilding Functional Work
Instructor: Barb Wolf

This course is a great way to continue to explore handbuilding with clay from home. While learning new techniques and refining ceramics skills, each participant will create three functional objects with real time guidance. Slab and coils will be the main assembly methods to create sculptural and functional works including a mug, a jar, and a bottle. The final class will focus on final refining ideas and surface design.
