Has your child always wanted to learn how to create and sculpt with clay? In this class, students will learn the basic skills on how to manipulate clay into functional pottery pieces. We will focus on many hand-building techniques including pinch, coiling, and slab. Students will sculpt with air-dry clay during the first two classes and will paint and seal their pieces during the last class. They will take home 2-3 finished pieces including their choice of a pencil holder, trinket dish, jewelry holder, or catch-all tray. The class fee includes air-dry clay, acrylic paints, and the use of a stamps, stencils, work mats, paint brushes, and many modeling tools to create detailed and personalized creations!
