COILED POT CLAY WORKSHOP
With Instructor Cray Charlebois
Wednesday, July 13
Making pottery out of coils of clay is as old as, well, pottery itself! Some date back 15,000 years. Contemporary ceramic artists use coils - basically ropes of clay - to create pots without working on the pottery wheel. The coils can be left as a visible textural element, or smoothed out, or a combination of both, as in our photo. In this 2-hour class instructor Cray Charlebois will show you how to make coils and how to use them to build your own pot out of stoneware clay. We will fire it in our kiln, glaze it and fire it a second time. When it’s done, you may pick it up.
Registration includes all materials you will need for class, one bisque firing and one glaze firing. Classes are limited to 8 students, ensuring a high level of individual attention, and are reserved on a first-paid basis.
* In the event the class is cancelled, your payment will be refunded.
Classes are held at Main Exhibit Gallery’s fully-accessible Art Center
