09. Intro Ceramics Session 2

This is an introductory class, focusing on hand building, wheel throwing and simple press molds; developing an understanding of clay, with skills both on and off the wheel. This class will create a safe environment to experiment and develop new skills in ceramics. (Ghost moment not included).

11. Handbuilding the Figure

This class will take students away from the potter's wheel and into the world of figurative
