Shape Clay Together: Turtles & Frogs
Time & Location
About the Event
The Shape Clay Together class is a fun opportunity for one child and their adult guardian to enjoy creating together. Through guided instruction, the teams of two will learn pinch pot techniques to create unique turtle and frog shaped vessels. Basic ceramic hand building techniques will be taught so participants can embellish their pieces with coils and textures from nature. The ceramic pieces will be finished with colored underglaze slips and clear glaze. Because the pieces will need to be dried and fired in a kiln, the artwork will need to be picked up at a later date. The class will take place at Peter Johnson’s Terrestrial Forming Pottery Studio.
