Ceramics II: Slab Construction
Take your clay skills to the next level and learn ceramic construction and detailing techniques.
In the first part of the class, learn all about using hard slabs. Make structurally sound and complex shapes. Then, learn detailing techniques including carving and slip trailing, that can be used to embellish the objects you make. In the second portion of the class, learn how to texture slabs and use them to make functional ceramic objects.
By the end of this hands-on workshop, students will have made a polygonal box with a functional lid as well as an intricate textured cup.
Fee Notes: class fees include all materials as well as our instructor's first-firing, but if you would like to glaze-fire your work please see our glazing workshop.
