The Art Room: Clay Works

IMPORTANT COVID POLICY INFORMATION

Please note that <b>SJAC will continue to keep a mandatory mask policy in place for all programs</b> (workshops, galleries, performing arts events, rental events.)

Workshop Description

This workshop follows on the lessons in The Art Room’s ‘Create with Clay’. Learning the ancient practices of making clay objects will result in students creating a slab and coil flower pot and mug, scratching into the surface and adding various textures. Students will learn how to add sculptural elements to their work, and they will also be introduced to ‘throwing on the wheel’ as an experiential learning project.

Topics:

  • Hand-building and sculpting
  • All about texture: making stamps and using textures and slab building
  • Decorating with underglaze
  • Throwing on the wheel
