SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS!

HAND-BUILDING:

What will you do in a beginners hand-building class?  
We will start off with pinch pots to make small bowls, then move onto coiling and larger pieces, and finish off with slab work.  You will end up with finished pieces worthy of gift giving!

What should you wear?
Old clothes.  The clay doesn’t stain and can be washed out, but you’re better off wearing something you don’t mind getting dirty.

What should you bring?
If the weather is sloppy, you’ll need shoes for the studio.  It’s a good idea to bring an old towel, and some people like an apron.  I will provide all of the tools you’ll need to work with the clay.

The most important thing?  CUT YOUR NAILS!

THROWING:

What will you do in a beginners throwing class?  
Most of the time will be dedicated to learning how to center the clay — and from there we will be making cylinders, which we will turn into small serving dishes and cups.  It will take at least 6 weeks to master these simple forms.

What should you wear?
Old clothes.  The clay doesn’t stain and can be washed out, but you’re better off wearing something you don’t mind getting dirty.
