New art forms can be expensive, and when you don't know if you like something or not, investing is a big risk. In this course, you'll learn how to set up a ceramics studio in the comfort of your own home without having to buy a single ceramics tool. We'll raid the kitchen, junk drawer, and bathroom to find tools that will get you started with this wonderful, tactile medium. The only thing you'll have to buy is some paperclay from Ceramics Supply USA (a local SLC ceramics supply store). We will start by making very simple sculptures, but ultimately you'll learn the basics of hand-building ceramics: pinch, slab, and coil construction. Finally, instead of glazing, we'll explore at-home solutions for bringing color to your fired or unfired creations.
Taught by Anne Goodrich Hunter. This is an online class. Students must visit Ceramic Supply USA at 181 W 1700 S, SLC to purchase their own paperclay before class. See the materials list for more information. We hate canceling classes, but sometimes there are forces outside of our control. Please keep this in mind as you purchase supplies and hang onto your receipt. Email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the status of a class.
