Ceramics Classes

Online (Zoom) Ceramics Classes

Instructor: Janice Strawder

Students will be guided through a series of clay projects that will address basic hand-building techniques. Included will be the physical manipulation of the clay, such as darting, stretching, and carving, surface decorating with brushwork and color, and finish glazing techniques. These projects will offer options, and enough flexibility for you to express your own unique vision. A syllabus will be provided along with suggestion for setting up your workspace. Outdoor glaze sessions for using our studio glazes will be available by appointment with regard to social distancing.

Students who register will receive an automatic email (to the email you provide) that will list the Zoom Meeting ID Number.  You will then go to (or download the zoom app) and click on "join a meeting".  You will then be asked to enter in this ID number.  Once you join the meeting, you will be put into the waiting room until the class begins.
