Intro to Ceramics

Join in the fun at Redmond Art Works for a 2 hour class on how to create your own ceramic artwork using the pottery wheel and hand building techniques.

Students will be introduced to the exciting world of clay through a wide range of project ideas and building techniques including wheel throwing, slab, coil, surface design, glazing, and firing. During this session you will be supported by Chelsea, instructing you in the basics of hand building & wheel throwing. Each student will complete at least one piece, that will then be fired and ready for the second step of glazing at a later date.

This intro class is necessary for anyone interested in using the studio during our drop in open studio hours.

Redmond Art Works offers plenty of open studio time for you to drop in to finish the glazing and finishing touches of your piece / pieces at a $10 hourly charge. Class fee includes your first 3 pounds of clay.
