Intermediate Pottery Techniques
Registration Information
March 2 - March 23, 2021

This class is for those who have completed Pottery Foundations or similar basic hand building classes. It will explore clay hand-building and surface decoration techniques, such as deliberately making cracks, mixing different colored clays, building simple figurines, and mending broken green/bisque-ware.

You can register for any of the first 3 lessons individually or for the entire class of 4 lessons at a reduced fee. The last lesson will be glazing. You can choose to glaze your bisque-fired pieces in the class or do it independently during the Open Pottery Studio hours. Glazes and some basic tools will be provided.

If you need to review how to use a slab roller, come to the first lesson at 5:15 pm. The instructor will quickly demonstrate it for you.

Students are encouraged to bring their own modeling tools, a dust mask and disposable gloves and are required to purchase their own clay. We recommend white-colored clay especially in the second lesson (with mason stains). Navajo White Clay will be available for sale at the Dahl while supplies last.
